Walmart Canada will soon begin accepting Visa at its 19 stores where the card was no longer accepted.
“We have come to an agreement with Visa which allows us to continue offering Visa as a form of payment in our (Canadian) stores,” says a statement from the retailer, which was released late Thursday afternoon.
Walmart Canada customers in Thunder Bay, Ont. and Manitoba will be able to use Visa credit cards again starting on Jan. 6.
The retailer stopped accepting Visa at its Thunder Bay stores in July and at its Manitoba stores in October. Walmart Canada had threatened to eventually stop accepting Visa at its more than 400 stores across the country due to “unacceptably high” fees.
Visa and Walmart Canada didn’t disclose details of the agreement.
