Apple Pay expands to TD Canada Trust, BMO and Scotiabank customers


Apple Pay is finally available to customers at most of Canada’s major financial institutions.

BMO customers are able to connect a MasterCard or Interac debit card, TD Canada Trust works with Visa and Interac debit cards, while Scotiabank customers can use Apple Pay through a Visa, Amex, or Interac debit card.

The other addition to Apple’s payment platform in Canada is support for in-app purchases, giving users the ability to pay for physical goods within apps via Apple Pay. In-app payments are available now through ATB, Canadian Tire, CIBC, RBC, BMO, TD Canada Trust, Scotiabank, and American Express.

Apple Pay payments within apps are available through credit card – Visa, Amex, MasterCard – for the time being, while Interac support is set to launch at a later date.

Some of the apps that enable in-app purchases are the Apple Store, Kickstarter, Starbucks, HotelTonight, Uber, and Canadian-based photo album app Impressed.

Apple Pay is compatible with the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, and the Apple Watch when paired with the iPhone 5 or later.

“Soon you will be able to add your favourite store credit cards and rewards cards to Wallet — and use them to make purchases and redeem rewards with Apple Pay,” writes Apple in a statement on its official website.
