Apple Pay is now available in Canada!



We are excited to announce that Elavon now offers its customers access to Apple Pay™. Following the recent launch of Apple Pay in Canada for American Express cardholders, Elavon is among the first payment processing companies to offer Apple Pay to Canadian businesses.

Apple Pay works with current Ingenico NFC enabled (contactless) point of sale terminals. To pay, consumers simply hold their mobile device near the contactless reader, exactly as they would a contactless card today. The payment information is then passed to the POS system once the consumer confirms the transaction using Touch ID on their device.

Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay, and when a consumer adds a credit card to Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, or on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on the device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

Ensure your current terminal can accept NFC contactless payments so you can begin accepting Apple Pay payments today!
