How to Easily Find Stores that Accept Apple Pay in Canada (Like Tim Hortons)


Canadians with US-issued credit cards approved for Apple Pay have already been using the service at the plethora of NFC terminals we have here, such as at places like Tim Hortons or Starbucks.

All you have to do is download the MasterCard Nearby iOS app, as it lists all nearby merchants that accept the credit card’s PayPass contactless payment, which means it’ll also accept Apple Pay from your iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
