    Did you just switch your region setting? If your credit card can be registered into Apple Pay, from what I gather, it should work everywhere NFC is accepted (so PayPass, PayWave, places where you can just "beep" your credit card with). Try and let us know!

    Region switching worked, and I entered in my card and returned the region back to Canada, and the verified card is still there!

    And I hope so! I'm gonna go test it out.

    I'm very interested to hear whether it does, so please let us know! Do you know whether we'll be able to easily switch back and forth between our American and Canadian cards? That will be a godsend for me!

    It looks like a sideways WiFi symbol on the terminal that you would usually swipe your credit card at.

    Tim Hortons? McDonalds they should have them there also. I am super curious about this since I travel internationally. Report back ASAP! :)
