E-Transfer Delays!

To our surprise, some of our parents have been experiencing up to 4 hour delays from when they execute an e-transfer to us and when we receive it. Although we usually get it much quicker than that, we are asking parents to avoid last minute payments. When using e-transfers make payments at least a day in advance to avoid late payment penalties. We are not able to take into account delays experienced by the technology behind e-transfers.
