Telpay Celebrates Labour Day


Monday, September 1st is Labour Day. For many of us, this long weekend represents the end of the hot summer months and the beginning of the transition into fall. We are going to try to get the most of the last bit of (hopefully) hot weather and you should too! Therefore, the Telpay office will be closed on Monday September 1st and we will not be processing any electronic payments. Make sure to plan ahead in order for your payments to arrive at their destination on time. Then you can really sit back and enjoy the last long weekend of the summer!

Check out the complete list of our holidays.

Approving Payments Photo Contest


Mountains, lakes and beaches – these don’t seem like your normal work spaces? However, these are just some of the places that Telpay customers can approve their payments from. Our ongoing Snap. Share. Win. contest is bringing in photo submissions from across Canada and the United States showcasing the beautiful and fun locations that our customers are visiting this summer. From hot springs to pools to parks, submissions have shown a variety of activities that our customers don’t have to miss out on. Telpay’s Remote Authorization feature allows these vacationers to maintain their payment schedule, while having fun out of the office.

The contest runs through August, so there is still plenty of time to send in your photos. Whether you are traveling internationally and approving payments from a café in Paris, camping, or out at the lake, we want to see your pictures! Even if you’re on a “staycation” and using Remote Authorization to approve payments from your backyard barbeque – just snap a selfie and submit it. The winner of the contest will receive an awesome Nikon camera prize pack, valued at $315.

Enter by sending your approving payments photo to or by posting on our Facebook page. Also check out our Facebook page to see some of the entries that have already been submitted. See contest terms and conditions here.

Enjoy your summer and the freedom of Telpay’s Remote Authorization. Remember to send in your photos to our Snap. Share. Win. contest.

Relax This August Long Weekend


Every August, Canadians anticipate the August Civic Holiday to unwind, relax and maybe even get away for a bit. This also includes our Telpay family.

We would like to remind all of our customers that on Monday, August 4th, Telpay will be closed and will not be processing electronic payments on this day. Before you get too far into relaxation mode, be sure to account for this when entering your payments into the system so that all your payments go out when you want them too. We are crossing our fingers for great weather, and hope that wherever you are, you get some sunshine too!

Happy Canada Day from Telpay

Here at Telpay, we are all looking forward to celebrating Canada Day out of the office and with our families and friends. We’ll all be relaxing out at the lake, barbequing, or seeing the sights at a lively street festival in the city and taking in some fireworks at night. Hopefully you’ll be doing the same! This means that on Tuesday, July 1st, our office will be closed and it is not a processing date for electronic payments made with Telpay. Make sure to plan ahead accordingly in order to make sure your payments will go through when you want them to. Then you’ll be able to spend the day celebrating our great country as well!
