Scotiabank today launched Apple Pay for customers in Canada.
Effective today, customers with a Scotiabank debit card or eligible credit card can use Apple Pay both in-store and within apps.
"At Scotiabank, we are embracing a digital transformation and are committed to providing our customers with safe, secure and innovative financial tools and services that are tailored to their needs," said Mike Henry, Executive Vice President of Retail Payments, Deposits and Unsecured Lending at Scotiabank. "We are delighted to add Apple Pay to our robust line-up of mobile payment solutions."
With Apple Pay, Scotiabank customers will receive the same number of loyalty rewards for their transactions for eligible Scotiabank credit or debit cards that they currently use, no matter what payment option that they choose.
Apple Pay is ready to use immediately after adding an eligible Scotiabank payment card to Apple Pay. Customers can add a Scotiabank payment card on an iPhone, or Apple Watch, or iPad, in three simple steps. To get started, look for the "Wallet App" on iPhone and Apple Watch and "Open Settings" on iPad. More information about Apple Pay from Scotiabank is available at www.scotiabank.com/applepay.
Apple Pay is compatible with the following devices: iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus; iPhone SE; iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Pro; Apple Watch (paired with iPhone 5 or later).
