      Hi Reggie.

      You cannot use your credit card to send money to Questrade. 

      Credit card companies charge a percentage as a fee to the place that accepts credit cards (usually around 1.5%). So if for example, somebody was moving $400,000 to Questrade, Questrade wouldn’t want to pay a percentage of that to the credit card company. 

      As you can imagine, the fees could get very large if they allowed that. For example, on $400,000 that would be $6,000 in fees that Questrade would have to pay. They aren’t going to make $6,000 from you over your lifetime to recoup that, so allowing this would really hurt them from a business viability standpoint.
