Desjardins adds Android Pay to its mobile payment offer

Leave your wallet at home and choose a more convenient payment option

MONTREAL, May 31, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Desjardins members and clients with compatible Android devices now have access to an additional payment method that is a simple and secure way to pay on mobile devices: Android Pay from Google.

"The addition of Android Pay to our mobile payment offer is another example of the innovative spirit that drives Desjardins. We're very proud to be the first financial institution in Quebec to offer our members and clients such a wide range of mobile services. What's more, our members are very satisfied with their quality: they ranked the Desjardins mobile banking app first out of the main Canadian financial institutions on Android devices, and second on Apple devices," said André Chatelain, Executive Vice-President, Personal Services, Payments and Desjardins Group Marketing.

To get the app, simply download it from the Google Play Store. Then, all you have to do is add your Desjardins Visa cards (credit and prepaid) by taking a picture of them with the Android Pay app or entering the card information and you're ready to go.

Android Pay will be available for Interac debit cards starting on Monday, June 5, and for Desjardins Cash Back Mastercard, Cash Back World Mastercard and World Elite Mastercard cards later in 2017.
