Tangerine Interac Flash to Support Apple Pay in November?
In early August, Tangerine launched Apple Pay support, but only for their money-back credit card clients, leaving many wondering when Interac Flash support would arrive.
Interac Flash Apple Pay support appears to be coming soon, according to an updated cardholder agreement sent out to customers yesterday—set to kick in on Monday, November 7, 2016.

According to Tangerine bank customers and the iPhone in Canada nation, the updated agreement mentions paying by holding your card over a payment terminal.
5. Interac® Flash is a feature available on your Card that enables Cardholders to use the Tangerine Client Card to pay for purchases up to $100 at select merchants by holding your Card over a Direct Payment Terminal that supports Interac Flash. If you exceed this maximum amount at any merchant, you’ll be prompted to insert your Card in the reader and enter your PIN in order to complete the transaction. Interac Flash transactions are only for the payment of goods and services – “cashback” transactions are not permitted.
If you’re waiting for Apple Pay and Interac Flash with Tangerine, sounds like it’s coming soon, based on this new agreement. It only makes sense now that tap support is coming soon for the bank’s debit card.
