Staples Canada is now accepting UnionPay as a form of payment at its store locations across Canada to offer an enhanced payment experience for UnionPay cardholders.

UnionPay is number one in terms of total cards issued globally and is the leading payment card used by visitors from China and other Asia-Pacific countries while travelling abroad. In Canada, UnionPay is accepted at over 280,000 retailers and more than 90 per cent of ATMs.

"This is one more way that we are bringing The Working and Learning Company to life – by keeping up with how customers want to shop with us and supporting new payment methods that become available," said David Boone, Chief Executive Officer, Staples Canada. "Canada is a popular destination for students who wish to study abroad, and we want to do what we can to provide access to the tools they need to work, learn and grow."

With the addition of UnionPay, Staples Canada accepts all major forms of payment at its 305 store locations.
