Apple recently launched Apple Pay, the ability to pay with a debit or credit card using an iPhone, Apple Watch, or iPad instead of a traditional plastic card. Apple released this new payment service with a few national banks. Other banks and credit unions will be added to Apple Pay in the future and Utah Community Credit Union is in queue to provide Apple Pay to our members as soon as Apple expands its service. UCCU anticipates Apple Pay usage will increase as more businesses update their technology to accept this new payment option.
How does Apple Pay Work?
Apple Pay can be used with the following devices with iOS 8.1 or later: iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 3. Instead of a traditional plastic card to facilitate a purchase Apple Pay uses Touch ID with a single touch of your finger. Setup is simple. In your Passbook app take a picture of an approved debit or credit card to be used as payment.
A major hurdle in the widespread use of Apple Pay is that businesses need to have near field communication (NFC) technology to accept Apple Pay services. The credit union anticipates that more businesses will update their hardware to accept this new form of payment.
Is Apple Pay Safe?
A benefit to Apple Pay is that your actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared by Apple with merchants or transmitted with payment. Instead Apple Pay passes a transaction-specific dynamic security code to process the payment. In addition, paying with Apple Pay is private, as the cashier will never see your name, card numbers or security code.
When will UCCU have Apple Pay?
UCCU is eager to allow members to use their UCCU debit and credit cards with Apple Pay. The credit union is in queue with Apple to offer Apple Pay. Get started using Apple Pay with UCCU cards when available. The credit union will notify members again as it gets closer.
