Capital One Canada: ‘No Immediate Plans’ for Apple Pay with Costco Mastercard

While Costco Canada warehouses accept Apple Pay at their terminals (for Mastercard and debit), customers who hold the warehouse’s Capital One Platinum Mastercard have long been wondering when support will arrive for the latter.

Well, we do have an update, if you’ve been looking for one. Andrew Clarke, Manager, Corporate Communications for Capital One, told iPhone in Canada via email the company currently has no plans to launch Apple Pay, when we reached out for an update.

According to Clark, he said “we have no immediate plans to launch Apple Pay, and will continue to evaluate it as well as other payment methods.”

The answer appears to fall in line with what Capital One Canada has been informing customers on Twitter, noting “Right now there is no news regarding Apple Pay, but our community will be among the first to know when we have an update.”

While Capital One in the USA supports Apple Pay, Canadian customers of Capital One credit cards may have to keep waiting for iPhone mobile wallet support to arrive here.

Back in the spring of 2016, Costco Canada said the Capital One Mastercard “won’t be supporting this payment method,” when asked about Apple Pay.

Yesterday, Apple Pay expanded in Canada, reaching Vancity Credit Union in the BC Lower Mainland, and Assiniboine Credit Union, Cambrian Credit Union Limited and Steinbach Credit Union in Manitoba.
