Canada – Leading the World in Mobile Payments

Canada – Leading the World in Mobile Payments

Consistent with our history of early adoption of new technologies such as the Internet, debit cards, EMV, smartphones and contactless cards, Canada is once again leading the way in paying with your phone.  And EnStream is key to this success, as the hub connecting the players together.

Mobile payments are expanding, now supported by Bell, Rogers, TELUS, SaskTel and MTS, who collectively provide service to over 94% of Canada’s wireless subscribers. With appropriately provisioned smartphones, their customers now have the ability to ‘pay with their phone.’  Similarly, five of Canada’s six largest financial institutions: CIBC, Desjardins, RBC, Scotiabank and TD – who together serve 85% of Canada’s households with retail banking services – are providing mobile payments.

Equally important, over 84% of major Canadian retailers already have the required NFC contactless terminals.

EnStream securely delivers the credit, debit and pre-paid cards offered by financial institutions to wireless handsets while preserving each bank’s direct relationship with their customers through their own banking and payment applications.  EnStream’s solutions, which utilize leading global suppliers BellID® from the Netherlands and Canada’s BlackBerry™, meet GlobalPlatform™ standards and are fully Visa and MasterCard certified

EnStream provides the end-to-end ‘hub’ solution for most of these connections and is proud to be part of this Canadian success story.
