CIBC Mobile Payment App now available to download from AppWorld
Back on the second of this month, we reported how history was made in Canada, when the BlackBerry Bold 9900 was used to make the first Mobile Payment in Canada.
This service gives Rogers customers who have the NFC-enabled BlackBerry Bold 9900 or the Curve 9360 the ability to pay for small value items via their device, then billed to their CIBC credit card.
At the time, Rogers announced that the CIBC Mobile Payment™ app would be ready for download on the 16th of this month (today in Canada). Well, true to their word, the pp is now available to download from AppWorld and you can start using it to pay for coffee, groceries and other everyday purchases. Simply hold your BlackBerry smartphone up to any contactless payment terminals in merchants across Canada, and your purchase will be made instantly.
