Apple Pay for Rogers Bank MasterCard

Today, I added all my Credit Cards into my Apple Wallet, even my CanadianTire MasterCard works. It is hard to believe that my RogersBank MasterCard doesn't work in Apple Pay. Is there any plan to have it work?

 

Thanks

Welcome to the Community  @Ccclo Smiley Happy

 

Thank you for the post. Now that Apple Pay is available in Canada, we’ll be evaluating the demand to offer it to our cardholder base, but we do not yet have a date when it might be available. If I have any updates, I'll be sure to share it with the Community

That is just not acceptable. If Rogers Bank does not allow Apple Pay I will cancel my credit card.

I've got to say I agree, I have all my credit cards including Canadian Tire Options MasterCard, RBC Visa Infinite, Amex Aeroplan Platinum - heck, even my RBC and CIBC Interac DEBIT cards work as well in ApplePay! I find it astonishing that we can pay via debit card with Apple Pay but the only card I own that I still have to use physically is my Rogers MasterCard.

If there are no plans to support Apple Pay from Rogers Bank then I as well will be closing my account. I will wait about another month, which is when the majority of other Canadian banks are going to be launching Apple Pay support, and if by then Rogers Bank still doesn't support it then I will no longer have use for having the card.

Rogers used to be the leader with new, innovative mobile technologies and always partnered with industry leaders and manufacturers such as Apple to release the hottest new tech first in Canada. Now, since Apple Pay competes with their failed "SureTap Wallet," they are dragging their feet behind the most innovative mobile payment technology in the world right now - Apple Pay.

It's very disappointing and honestly I got my Rogers MasterCard thinking to myself that Rogers Bank is different than the big banks, since they're owned by a major mobile network operator maybe I will get to see new technologies like Apple Pay first, before the mainstream. Oh how wrong I was.

And it's very disappointing from Canada's leading telecommunications company.

I agree, how is Rogers sell iPhone(s) and try to sell Apple pay is one of it's feature... And yet, there own Credit Card doesn't support it!

 

It doesn't even sound logical!

Hi,

One can only assume it is only a matter of time, if RogersBank proves to be a serious long term endeavour (which is not obvious at this juncture). RogersBank is a small player, and surely Apple did not count them in on the marketing blitz ;-), so they can drag their feet all they want ... Here's hoping it will be sooner rather than later: the RogersBank MC is one of the best options out there for cash rewards (no annual fees (condition), no exchange fees, great account options).

Any updates with Pay? Because of this delay, I've switched to the BMO Cashback MasterCard that has %2 on everything for 6 months. By then I'm hoping you guys are good to go with Pay and you'll be back to being my full time card.

When you get down to it, Rogers Bank can just ignore Apple Pay and it's customer's desire to use their card in that way. I do not feel that they have any real respect for their customers. Their card is not that wonderful or unique, truth be told.

 

I do like the 1.75% cash back on all purchases, but there are other fish in the sea with good cash back rewards. We customers have the right to shelve the Rogers Mastercard and replace it with another card.

 

If they make no positive move to play with the "real" banks and support Apple Pay, I am replacing my Rogers Mastercard soon. My RBC Mastercard has been getting a real workout since I got it, but the rewards could be better. I applied for it as soon as I heard they would get behind Apple Pay and it is my default card at this time!
