Fast and easy deposits for Canadian customers!

Starting today, our Canadian customers can fund their Bitstamp accounts using eCheck.

What is an eCheck?
An eCheck, also known as ACH (Automated Clearing House), is a direct debit from a customer's bank account that is then deposited into his Bitstamp account. It usually takes between 2 and 5 business days to clear and the money to appear in the recipient's Bitstamp account.

How does it work? Easy.

  • Go to the deposit section of our site and select eCheck.
  • Fill in the details and click Submit.
  • Once the registration process is complete you will be able to add your bank account details.
  • Verification of your bank account will follow by a micro deposit being sent to your bank account followed by an email with additional instructions.
  • After receiving the final confirmation you are good to go!

What about the fees?
An eCheck transfer carries a 1% transaction fee with the minimum set at $1 and maximum at $250.
