How to create a payment in your Scotia Connect account?

Learn how to create and manage payments in your Scotia Connect account.

In this article, let's understand how to create a payment in your Scotia Connect account. Existing Scotia Bank support articles can be unclear and lack a sense of direction. This guide aims to fill that gap, offering clear, concise instructions for managing payments efficiently.

Creating Payments:

Step 1: In the Overview section, there is an option for 'Creating Payments' to your recipients. Ensure you add recipients before processing payments.

Step 2: Add payment details such as the payment source (i.e., the account from which money is transferred), the amount, and any internal information.

Step 3: Review the payment details, including originator details, payment details, and recipient information. Check the summary and full payment details to ensure everything is correct.

Payment will be processed in the final stage post confirmation.

Can we send payments at convenience with Scotia Bank?

Definitely not. The payment journey with Scotia Connect is long and complicated, involving creating the recipient and processing the payment, which is neither smooth nor easy.

The bigger issue arises when you need to send urgent payments during public holidays—it becomes impossible.
