FINALLY! TD Bank Provides Google Wallet Support For Its Cards

Two years ago, I wrote about TD Bank not having support for Google Wallet and only having support for Apple Wallet. This angered users and sparked a petition to encourage TD to provide this support. I guess that this worked as 9to5Google is now saying that TD now has Google Wallet support:

The last major bank in Canada that didn’t support Google Wallet, TD Bank, has this week finally launched support for NFC payments on Android phones.


Last year, TD Bank announced the shutdown of its own mobile payment service. Customers were reminded of the change via email, with TD then going on to announce that it would open up support for Google Pay and, in turn, Google Wallet on Android devices starting this week.

The email reads:

In October, TD informed customers of its decision to discontinue the TD Mobile Payment service. 

We recognize that mobile payments have become a part of our everyday lives and we are committed to offering a variety of payment solutions for our customers. 

Today, we are happy to announce the launch of Google Pay; customers now have the option to add their TD Access Cards and eligible TD Credit Cards to their Android devices. To start using your mobile phone today, add your TD Access Card or eligible TD Credit Card(s) to Google Pay, if you have not done so already.

I really don’t understand why it took so long for TD to support Google Wallet. It’s almost as if they didn’t want to provide this support, and ultimately were forced to support it for whatever reason. This really reflects poorly on TD. But I am sure that Android users who are TD customers are happy about this development.
