Participating Subway restaurants in Canada will soon be accepting Visa’s contactless payWave cards. Chase Paymentech, the merchant acquirer of record for Subway in Canada, will handle the implementation and provide support for the contactless terminals.
“We are looking forward to the opportunity to understand the impact of contactless on speed of service as well as understanding how many of our customers take advantage of this payment method,” said Marina O’Rourke, director of Retail Technology at Subway World Headquarters.
The deployment of Visa payWave enabled Visa cards and POS terminals is aligned with Visa’s migration to chip card technology in Canada. Visa employs a layered approach to its fraud prevention efforts, including technology on the card itself as well as on Visa’s processing network to help heighten security efforts.
The Subway restaurant chain is the world’s largest submarine sandwich franchise, with nearly 31,000 locations in 89 countries, including more than 2,400 in Canada.
