Tangerine CEO Gives Apple Pay Update, Testing Still Underway

Tangerine CEO, Peter Aceto, has provided an update on when the financial institution will launch support for Apple Pay.

Back in May, the CEO apologized for the lack of Apple Pay updates, and said support would come in 6-8 weeks, suggesting a late launch in July (he also confirmed they’re working on mobile wallet solutions for Android too).

Last week, responding to a customer, Aceto shared more news about Tangerine’s Apple Pay plans, saying testing is ongoing, but they are “not certain on specific timing”, adding support will come “absolutely soon.”

The CEO added “Can’t pinpoint the date as people would prefer. Partners and testing. Hope clients understand.”

Sounds like Apple Pay support from Tangerine is coming soon—hopefully customers can get it before the end of summer. Are you patiently waiting to get Apple Pay support from Tangerine?
