Rogers customers can change the way they pay with the launch of the 
suretap(TM) wallet 
Customers can now leave their cash at home and use their smartphones to make 
everyday purchases 
TORONTO, April 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Canadians are about to think differently about 
cash, cards and their bulky wallets. Today, Rogers is launching the suretap 
wallet, a new application that lets customers use their smartphones to make 
payments at tens of thousands of retailers across the country. With the 
suretap wallet, customers can safely store eligible payment cards on their 
smartphone and make purchases by simply holding it up to contactless payment 
terminals, just like they do today with plastic credit and debit cards. 
"Our customers are inseparable from their smartphones, and we know they are 
ready and want to use them to make payments. With the suretap wallet, their 
smartphones and wallets will now be one and the same," said Jeppe Dorff, 
Vice-President, Transaction Services, Rogers Communications. "Now thousands of 
our customers across the country can make simple, secure and fast payments 
using their smartphones instead of fumbling through their wallets to find 
their payment cards." 
Starting today, customers can add multiple cards to their suretap wallet 
including a Rogers Prepaid MasterCard that can be topped up with funds for 
mobile payments. Also available for purchase are gift cards from leading 
Canadian food and beverage merchants and retailers including Swiss Chalet, 
Milestones Grill and Bar, Montana's Cookhouse, Harvey's, Kelsey's, Indigo, 
Earls Restaurants, Ardene, and Spafinder Wellness 365. In the future, the 
suretap wallet application will offer more retailer gift cards, as well as 
store loyalty cards, coupons and ID cards. 
Within the suretap wallet application, customers can add funds to their 
prepaid card, check account balances, view transaction history and use 
location-based features to find retailers nearby that accept contactless 
payments. The application is available for download on select Android and 
BlackBerry 10 smartphones that include near-field-communications capabilities. 
Customers can have the peace of mind that their payment information and 
passcodes are securely stored on the suretap wallet's SIM card. The wallet is 
backed by technology that lets customers make payments anywhere in the world 
that contactless payments are accepted. For merchants and retailers, accepting 
mobile payments with the suretap wallet means no additional or new fees.
