Apple Pay is now available to Desjardins customers


Desjardins has finally brought Apple Pay to its customers.

Apple Pay officially went live in Canada in November 2015 with American Express. Shortly after, CIBC, RBC, ATB Financial, Canadian Tire Financial Services, TD Canada Trust, BMO, and Scotiabank all added the mobile payment solution to their services.

Desjardins customers will only be able to make purchases through its associated Visa cards, prepaid card, as well as Interac cards. Desjardin says that Apple Pay is coming to its Cash Back MasterCards, Cash Back World MasterCards and World Elite Mastercards in 2017.

Apple Pay works with the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE and Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2. Apple Pay will not work on the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s because it lacks the necessary NFC chip (but will work if you connect your Apple Watch to it).

In addition, iOS users can make in-app Apple Pay purchases with Touch ID-equipped iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.
