MasterCard To Trial NFC In Canada This Summer

MasterCard Canada this summer will start a 4-month NFC-phone trial, with the backing of some of Canada's largest retailers, including Loblaw, Petro Canada, Tim Hortons', Pioneer Petroleum, Rabba Foods, a major NHL arena and McDonalds.

One unusual aspect of the trial is that it will eventually support more than one payment card on each phone, said MasterCard Canada's Nagesh Devata.
