Videotron offers customers new mobile payment option

MONTRÉAL--Videotron customers who have a Desjardins Visa card can use their mobile phones to make mobile payments, quickly and securely, at any store equipped with a contactless payment terminal. Thanks to the NFC technology, they will be able to pay for purchase of up to $1001 by holding their phone close to the merchant's terminal.

"We are pleased to add this new option to our mobile payment solutions, which are making life easier for a growing proportion of our customers," said Manon Brouillette, President and CEO of Videotron. Customers who want to make mobile payments can go to the Videotron Customer Centre to check whether the function is supported by their device and their SIM card, and then download the Desjardins Mobile Payment app and follow the installation instructions. If their phone supports NFC but their SIM card does not, they can pick up a compatible SIM card free at any Videotron location.

This new solution for Desjardins customers complements the existing selection of mobile payment options supported by Videotron. Holders of credit or debit cards issued by other Canadian financial institutions can make mobile payments using Apple Pay or Android apps made available.
