Buying a Big Mac just got easier for Visa cardholders in Canada. Today, we are excited to announce that McDonald’s® restaurants in Canada are now accepting Visa payWave, which means that diners will now be able to simply “wave and go” when purchasing a Big Mac®, a Happy Meal® or any of their favourite menu items at McDonald’s. Currently available nationwide for front counter service, McDonald’s will be accepting Visa payWave at drive-thrus later this year.
Visa payWave makes these everyday, on-the-go purchases faster and more convenient, which makes it a natural fit for McDonald’s focus on customer service. In fact, adding payWave acceptance fits right into the broader changes happening at McDonald’s restaurants in Canada, like free wifi, the re-imaging of restaurant interiors and exteriors, as well as new and exciting menu items.
With our five biggest Canadian issuers now offering Visa payWave cards and great merchants like McDonald’s on board, it’s getting easier for Canadian Visa cardholders to simply ‘check, wave and go’. Read more about McDonald’s Visa payWave launch.
