Blackhawk Canada enables smartphone card payments


Pleasanton, Calif. - Prepaid payment network Blackhawk Network (Canada) Ltd. has launched its digital platform in the Canadian market, by offering Blackhawk's gift card products to Rogers' customers in the new Suretap wallet application. The application allows customers to safely store eligible payment and gift cards on their smartphones and make purchases directly from the phone by holding it up to contactless payment terminals.

Canadian retailers with e-gift cards available for purchase within the Suretap wallet include Indigo, Swiss Chalet, Montana'sCookhouse, Milestones Grill+Bar, Harvey's, Kelsey's, Earls Restaurants, Ardene, and Spafinder Wellness 365, with more available in the coming months.

By leveraging Blackhawk Canada's digital platform, Rogers' customers using the Suretap wallet can redeem a gift card by selecting a gift card in the wallet and having the merchant scan the bar code. The Suretap wallet also enables customers to send Blackhawk gift cards to friends and family as well as the ability to add existing plastic gift cards to the wallet application.
