New video: Mobile payments explained

Mobile payments arrived in a big way this year and we are thrilled to be part of this new technology wave. To explain what we’re up to, we made this video that introduces you to mobile payments, NFC technology and Rogers’ suretap, and answers the important questions “Why now?” and “How do I get started?” So press “play” and let us walk you through how to make a mobile payment, conveniently and securely, from your Rogers smartphone:

Having launched our Rogers suretap solution with CIBC a few weeks ago, we’re excited about what the future holds for SIM-based mobile payments that function on NFC-enabled devices. What about you?

Have you started to use mobile payments yet?

    Sure is alot of effort and hype devoted to the few who happen to have both a CIBC Visa and a Blackberry (Whats a Blackberry anymore anyway?). Maybe try marketing something that everyone can use, then we can get excited about it!

      So far BlackBerry is the only company that has included the NFC Technology (Near Field Communication) in their phones. Some Android & Windows phones will be including the NFC Technology in the future. Apple has said that they will Not be supporting the NFC Technology.

      Other Banks & Credit Cards will be launching the NFC Technology soon so this technology will expand quickly. Rogers/CIBC/BlackBerry are just the first to launch it.

      All of the new BlackBerry 10 phones and most of the old BlackBerry 7 phones have the necessary NFC Technology in them. (The new Nintendo Wii U Gamepad also has the NFC Technology in it)

      The BlackBerry 10 phones launch on January 30, 2013.

    I have purchased the Nokia Lumia 920 (win 8 w/ NFC) and this option is disabled. I am looking forward to that changing!
