Rogers™ suretap™ is a new service that turns your wireless smartphone into a mobile wallet. Instead of fumbling for cash, quickly pay for small purchases, up to $50 at the coffee shop or grocery store via your compatible Rogers device. It's already accepted at tens of thousands of merchants; just look for the contactless logo.
How Does it Work?
Leveraging Near Field Communication (NFC) Technology, Rogers suretap service allows you to securely download your credit card details to your NFC SIM card for use in mobile payments. To make a purchase, just tap your device at a contactless point of sale terminal and you're good to go!
Is it safe?
Use Rogers suretap service with select devices confidently, knowing that every transaction receives the same fraud protection as a contactless credit card, and secure encryption technology adds to the layers of security already in place on credit card purchases.
