A new report once again claims that Apple Pay will be making its way to Canada by the end of the year. Several payment processors have apparently already started advertising that their point-of-sale terminals will support the system. The system will reportedly start rolling out later this month with a soft launch in Apple Stores and select restaurant chains.
The Apple Pay timeline could change, but as of now we're told late October or early November would be the potential launch window. We will find out more info in the next couple weeks we're told.
Canada would be the second country outside of the U.S. to get Apple Pay support, with the system showing up in the U.K. back in July. There are also reports that Apple is close to launching Apple Pay in China, which could also happen before the end of the year.
