Picture this: You’re in the checkout line, cappuccino in hand. The cashier asks for payment, but instead of reaching for your wallet, you simply tap your compatible Rogers smartphone and the transaction is complete. No fumbling for coins; no fuss, no muss.
Meet suretap™, a quick and secure way to make small payments using your Rogers smartphone. It’s already accepted at tens of thousands of merchants; just look for the contactless logo.
The suretap service works by leveraging Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which enables mobile devices to communicate securely within short distances (about 10 cm or less). Completely secure, it’s just like using a plastic credit card, except easier and now on your phone.
To Get Started:
- Simply download a suretap supported application for either your BlackBerry or Android smartphone from your OS’s app store. Once the app is downloaded it will install automatically.
- You’ll also require a suretap SIM card. You can buy one online here.
- You’ll need a compatible device. Click here to learn more and see a list of eligible phones and applications.
