  • Convenient – available anytime, anywhere

  • Free – most online transactions are free or have lower fees than in-branch services1

Online banking is growing in popularity

Canadians are world leaders when it comes to using online and mobile banking, according to comScore, a global source for digital marketing intelligence. In 2011, Canada ranked as the top country for online banking, with almost 65% of Internet users going online each month to check their bank accounts. Convenience appears to be the primary motivation. Data from comScore shows that 60% of online banking customers in Canada use the Internet to pay bills instead of going into a bank.

Great reasons to bank online

One of the main reasons for the growing appeal of online banking is the ability to conveniently access many of the same services that used to be available only by visiting a branch or using the telephone.

At HSBC, most of the services you rely on in an HSBC branch are available online. You can:

  • View balances and account transaction history including HSBC Mutual Funds2, HSBC MasterCard®1 and foreign currency accounts
  • View e-Statements
  • Pay bills, including current, post-dated or recurring bill payments
  • Manage all of your global HSBC accounts online on one screen with Global View3, and instantly transfer money between them with Global Transfers3 — these unique international banking services allow you to manage your money freely and securely wherever you are in the world
