InComm and Peoples Trust launch first reloadable MasterCard prepaid card for m-payments in Canada

InComm in conjunction with Peoples Trust, have announced the launch of a prepaid card to be used in the suretap wallet from Rogers that can be topped up with funds for mobile payments across Canada.

The Rogers Prepaid MasterCard can be reloaded any time, at the consumer’s convenience, or via auto top-up. Paying for a purchase at a merchant location is faster than any physical card transaction and only requires tapping on a POS terminal.

The Rogers Prepaid MasterCard is available to consumers using the suretap wallet on selected Android and BlackBerry 10 smartphones that include NFC capabilities. The card is issued through the suretap wallet and can be activated within minutes.

“We’re pleased to partner with Peoples Trust on this initiative, as we see it as a great step forward in providing relevant payment solutions for on-the-go consumers,” said Karen Budahazy, General Manager of Canada, InComm. “With the majority of Canadians now using smartphones, suretap wallet will be a welcomed addition to the retail industry and will provide both our retail partners and prepaid card partners opportunities to participate in a secure mobile payments system to enable consumers to take full advantage of all the capabilities offered by today’s smartphones.”

“We’re thrilled to be at the forefront of offering a nationwide mobile payments product to the general public,” said John Pals, COO at Peoples Card Services. “Enabling Rogers as the first mobile provider in Canada to issue a MasterCard prepaid card via the suretap wallet is a major milestone for us.”
