For episode #27, we will be paying Digiflare a visit to learn about Suretap – Rogers' mobile wallet solution.

Leveraging Near Field Communication (NFC) Technology, the service allows you to securely download your CIBC credit card details to your NFC SIM card for use in mobile payments. To make a purchase, just tap your device at a contactless point of sale terminal and you’re good to go!
