Want to send over $10,000 to your Shakepay account? If the amount you want to send is too high for an e-Transfer, then you can use our wire transfer feature.

The wire transfer feature is enabled on all fully verified accounts.

Note: Once you initiate the wire transfer from your bank, it can take up to two working days for the wire to be credited to your Shakepay account.
