Other ways to pay your bills

You can also pay your bills in other ways, according to your needs:

Pre-authorized payment

Pre-authorized payment, or pre-authorized withdrawal, allows you to authorize an organization to automatically withdraw funds from your account, on the dates and under the conditions of your choice. Use pre-authorized payment to pay, for example:

  • Your cellphone bill
  • Daycare fees
  • Insurance
Set up a pre-authorized payment

To set up a pre-authorized payment, contact the organization you want to authorize to withdraw funds from your account. You'll need to fill in a preauthorized payment registration form with your information. The pre-authorized payment can often be set up online on the organization's site.

Modify or cancel a pre-authorized payment

To modify or cancel a pre-authorized payment, contact the organization making an automatic withdrawal from your account. Give yourself enough time for either of these changes to take effect before the next payment. Look at the organization's website to see if this can be done online.

Transfer your pre-authorized payments to us 

Changing financial institutions? To transfer your pre-authorized payments to your Desjardins account, give your new account information to the organizations making the automatic withdrawals. Many organizations will allow you to make this change online.

If applicable, consider moving your direct deposits to your new account as well.


A draft is a payment method where funds are guaranteed, because your financial institution holds them until the draft is deposited. It's useful for making large payments, such as:

  • Buying a car
  • A down payment on a home
  • A transaction that needs to be completed with the help of a notary

You get the draft in the form of a paper document. You then give it to the recipient, like you would with a cheque.

How to get a draft

To get a draft:

  1. Go to the counter at your caisse or branch and ask for a draft. The teller will verify your identity.
  2. The funds will be taken from your account, and you'll get the draft in the form of a paper document.
  3. The draft can then be cashed or deposited like you would a cheque, by mobile deposit, at the ATM or at the counter.

See our Service fees page for the cost of a draft.

What's the difference between a bank draft and a certified cheque?

Although these 2 payment methods are very similar, here's how they differ.

With a bank draft:

  • The funds are immediately withdrawn from your account and held by the financial institution until the draft is cashed.
  • The draft can be issued in Canadian dollars or other currencies by any caisse or branch. Use the currency converter for your calculations.
  • You can't request a stop payment for a draft in Canadian dollars.

With a certified cheque:

  • The funds are immediately withdrawn form your account and placed in a transitional account until the cheque is cashed.
  • The cheque can be certified by the person receiving or making the payment.
  • Certified cheques cost more than drafts.

Generally, the payment method will be specified by the recipient.

See our Service fees page for the cost of drafts and certified cheques.


Where on AccèsD can I see the payments made from an account?

To see the payments you've made from an account, select the account and look at its transaction history. Bill payments are listed there.

You can also download your account statement to see bill payments made during that period. See our Documents and statements page to learn more.

How do I pay a bill with my credit card?

Only some bills can be paid by credit card.

To do this, you have to set up pre-authorized payments so they're automatically charged to your credit card. Contact the organization to give them your credit card information.

Once you've set up the pre-authorized payment by credit card, make sure to pay the full balance by the due date every month to avoid paying interest.

Transaction fees apply if you exceed the number of transactions included in your monthly plan or if you don't have a plan. For more information, see the Service fees page.
