CIBC Expands Mobile Payment App to BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 Smartphones
TORONTO, Oct. 31, 2013 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) today announced an
expansion of the CIBC Mobile Payment App to BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 smartphones
on the Rogers wireless network, giving more Canadians the opportunity to pay
for everyday purchases with their smartphone at the checkout counter.
"Our clients tell us they've enjoyed being among the first in Canada to be
able to make everyday purchases at retailers with their mobile device," said
Brenda Clark, Vice-President, Payments Innovation and Integration, CIBC. "We
are excited to expand our CIBC Mobile Payment App to the BlackBerry Z10 and
Q10 smartphones on the Rogers network, bringing this new payment experience to
even more of our clients."
In November 2012, CIBC used a BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 smartphone on the
Rogers wireless network to become the first bank in Canada to complete a
mobile credit card transaction using the secure SIM card inside an NFC enabled
smartphone. The CIBC Mobile Payment App is also available on the Android OS
through the Samsung Galaxy S3. Today's announcement represents another step in
giving more Canadians a new way to pay for everyday purchases. Additional
mobile devices will be added in the coming weeks.
Credit card payments using the CIBC Mobile Payment App are already accepted at
thousands of retailers in Canada for purchases under $50 using the same
technology used today to accept contactless credit card payments. With the app
and a CIBC credit card, clients immediately have access to making mobile
payments at some of the most popular retailers in Canada.
The app can be downloaded now from the BlackBerry® World™ storefront for
clients using BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 smartphones on Rogers.
