seriously Rogers, get on mobile payment already. there's enough demand.
MBNA, BMO, AMEX: all have apple pay, why can't you?
this "excuse" of insufficient demand is getting old
The only card from the ones I have (credit and debit) that does not support Apple Pay.
Makes me reconsider keeping it...
As mentioned earlier in this thread, it costs money to have this feature. If my rebates were to decrease because of it, I would prefer to keep a higher rebate rate.
Question: Inevitably it may be possible to carry around only a phone, but how many people are able to conduct all their business in this manner and how many people don't have their credit card with them to make payment?
PS. I use Rogers MC for all my credit card purchases, maximizing my rebates and I keep one other card (a no fee Visa) in case there is ever a problem with the Rogers MC or the MasterCard (or Visa) system as there has been occasionally.
Name me one other free card that offers the rebates that Rogers MC does.
1.75% on all purchases
2% on Rogers purchases
4% on Foreign purchases.
That's with the Rogers World Elite. https://www.rogersbank.com/en/
Those other FIs probably had more "headroom" to "eat" the Apple Pay charges. In addition, if they were large FIs (unlike Roges) they may be able to negotiate lower fees, the same way that large merchants pay lower CC fees.
