Elavon, a leading global payments solution provider and subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB), provides access to Apple Pay and now supports the additional card brands most used by Canadian consumers. Interac®, Visa® and MasterCard® have been added in addition to American Express®.

Elavon is among the first payment processing companies to offer Apple Pay to Canadian businesses, and provides support for in-person payments, as well as in-app purchases for Interac®, Visa®, MasterCard® and American Express®.

Apple Pay works with existing Elavon EMV-contactless point of sale terminals in Canada and is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that's fast and convenient.

To pay with iPhone, customers simply rest their finger on Touch ID and hold their iPhone within an inch of the contactless reader until the word “Done" and a checkmark appear on the display. To pay with Apple Watch, customers double-click the side button and hold the display of their Apple Watch within an inch of the contactless reader.

Mia Huntington, SVP and General Manager of Elavon in Canada, said, “Canadians are early adopters of payment technology. The addition of the major card brands, along with the increasing consumer demand for contactless convenience, will continue to drive adoption of Apple Pay in Canada. Elavon and Apple Pay enable businesses to offer the secure payment options their customers expect through their preferred method of payment, including their iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch."
