Apple Pay grows in Canada, new banks and more cards

Apple Pay, it is almost painful to transmit the news about Apple's contactless payment system, the one that does not give us the opportunity to test the vast majority of Apple users spread around the world, remember that currently only available in United States of America, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and China. Meanwhile, we have to settle for seeing that More and more credit institutions and credit card brands are joining the NFC payment platform of Appland. On this occasion it is up to Canada, we tell you the news.

Apple has managed to become today the most important contactless payment platform in Canada, as it has finished closing the agreement with the five most important banks in the country, something that no other company has achieved so far. And to put the icing on the cake, we find that Visa, MasterCard and Interac join the party and They are compatible with Apple Pay in these four Canadian banks:

  • CIBC
  • RBC
  • ATB
  • Canadian Tire Financial Services

With this, we find that TD Canada Trust, BMO and Scotiabank also joins to support with Apple Pay, however, it is only the previous four that provide support for Visa and MasterCard. Meanwhile, in Spain we no longer receive even rumors, nothing has been said for months about the expansion of Apple Pay in Spain and France, so we have almost lost the Apple payment system for the remainder of the year , if a casual could surprise us with a presentation by the hand of the iPhone 7, two years after its launch, a real shame, especially if we consider that credit institutions such as ImaginBank (CaixaBank) or even telephone companies, offer their own payment platforms
