Rogers customers can change the way they pay with the launch of the suretap(TM) wallet

Rogers announced it has launched its suretap wallet, a new application that lets its customers use their Android and BlackBerry smartphones to make payments at tens of thousands of retailers across the country.

Customers can add multiple cards to their suretap wallet including a Rogers Prepaid MasterCard that can be topped up with funds for mobile payments. Also available for purchase are gift cards from leading Canadian food and beverage merchants and retailers including Swiss Chalet, Milestones Grill and Bar, Montana's Cookhouse, Harvey's, Kelsey's, Indigo, Earls Restaurants, Ardene, and Spafinder Wellness 365. In the future, the suretap wallet application will offer more retailer gift cards, as well as store loyalty cards, coupons and ID cards.

Customers can have the peace of mind that their payment information and passcodes are securely stored on the suretap wallet's SIM card. The wallet is backed by technology that lets customers make payments anywhere in the world that contactless payments are accepted. For merchants and retailers, accepting mobile payments with the suretap wallet means no additional or new fees.

To learn more about the suretap application including suretap-ready devices and the features and functionality of the wallet, visit www.rogers.com/suretap.

suretap ready devices
Samsung Galaxy Note 3™
Samsung Galaxy Note II™
Samsung Galaxy S4™
Samsung Galaxy S III™
Samsung GALAXY S5
HTC One™
LG G2
LG Optimus G
BlackBerry® Z10
More devices coming soon

You also need a suretap LTE SIM card.

Where Can I Use It?

Only stores or merchants who have a contactless point of sale (POS) terminal can support suretap mobile payments. Any terminal that accepts MasterCard PayPass or VISA payWave will also support suretap transactions.

If the merchants POS terminal doesn't support contactless transactions, or if your payment is more than $100, another method of payment will be required.

I have tried twice to active the Rogers Suretap wallet on my Galaxy S III. Both times, at the end of the process it tells me that my devices is not compatible.

After the second tried, I let the phone sit with the message on the screen while typing this message. It is now showing a message that "Unfortunately, suretap walled has stopped."

Is this ready for use????

P.S. - I do have NFC turned on.

Got the SIM, it is installed and working.

Tried to set up the suretap app, and that was a waste of time! The only card it will accept is the Rogers Mastercard.

I have a Mastercard. I don't need or want another. I want to use my existing Mastercard. That is not allowed at this time!

Is this a play to get more Rogers' Mastercards distributed?

I thought this was going to be useful....

If you read the description for the app, it clearly indicates it only supports the Rogers prepaid mastercard along with a few gift cards only at this time.

If you're a CIBC customer, CIBC mastercards are supported as well via a separate app.

Some interesting questions...

For some, there might be some confusion about NFC in the battery (like it is in my GSIII) vs. the Suretap SIM....

And will both NFC's operate without interfering with each other?

And is it the banking app that enables / disables the SIM NFC?

I currently turn on the battery's NFC when checking my Presto transit card balance (which works well by the way), then turn it off to conserve power.

The battery itself has NFC? What? I'm confused.

As for the SIM card, you just need an NFC compatible card for the payments app to work. The NFC antenna isn't in the card, it's in the phone. This is why only phones with NFC will work.

The NFC sim does not have an NFC radio its simply a secure element that stores your payment credentials in an encrypted format that is not supported on regular SIM cards.

Correction: the ANTENNA for NFC is in the battery...

Apologies for the confusion.

Anyone know how long until they support other credit cards, such as Mastercard?

It doesn't work like that. Each bank would have to release their own app for their own card or partner up with someone like Rogers to get their card supported in something like Suretap.

CIBC Mobile Payment App Expanding to Bell Smartphones

CIBC and Bell today announced an agreement to launch the CIBC Mobile Payment App on Bell smartphones in the coming weeks.

Protected by multiple passcodes and with information stored safely on the smartphone's encrypted NFC SIM card, mobile payments are a secure way to make everyday purchases. Mobile payments using NFC (near field communications) technology are already accepted at thousands of popular retailers across Canada for purchases under $100.

The CIBC Mobile Payment App will be available to Bell Mobility customers for free download in the coming weeks from Google Play and BlackBerry World. CIBC clients will be able to use the app on the following devices:

Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note II, HTC One (M7), BlackBerry Q10, BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Bold 9900.

For more information, please visit cibc.com/mobile or Bell.ca/MobilePayments.

Full Press Release.

Just a reminder that you have to get a Bell NFC SIM card before the app will work.

I'm not totally sold on the idea considering it's pretty quick to just use Visa Pay Wave or MasterCard Pay Pass, or even Interac Flash, so not sure why I'd want to have to pull out the phone and navigate to the app every time. I can't really stop carrying the physical cards, since if my phone battery ever died I'd be SOL.

I'm sure opening the app will be as easy as tapping the icon.

There are times I'd like to go out and leave my wallet at home. Having payment functionality on my BlackBerry would be handy.
