“We are delighted to extend our network to TD Bank, as well as explore opportunities to bring the latest innovation to TD Bank customers,” said Chris McWilton, president, North America, MasterCard.
This agreement will take effect in the beginning of 2016 and will bring TD Bank a platform to deliver robust payment options to their customers in an ongoing manner.
