According to an internal doc received by Mobile Syrup, TELUS’s “NFC Mobile Payments” option will go live on February 4th and its launch partner will be CIBC.

Users will be able to purchase small ticket items — likely under $50 — with an NFC-enabled smartphone. As expected, there are a few stipulations to making this work on a TELUS device.

You’ll need a compatible secure NFC-enabled SIM with an active postpaid voice and data plan. Next, users will need to have a CIBC credit card and the CIBC mobile payment app. Once you do all this you can start carrying less cash and tap your device at any merchant that has a MasterCard PayPass or Visa PayWave point of sale.

The doc notes the eligible devices are the Samsung Galaxy SIII, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note II and the HTC One.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
