Apple Pay now available at SCU

SCU More Generous Banking today announced that its eftpos rediCARD cardholders could now use Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.

SCU More Generous Banking said Apple Pay with eftpos will provide rediCard cardholders with the ability to make eftpos CHQ or SAV purchases on their iPhone or Apple Watch using their own money in real time.

Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

eftpos Acting CEO, Mr Paul Jennings, said as Australia’s most used debit card network, eftpos is thrilled to have worked with Apple and SCU More Generous Banking to provide consumers with more payment choice.

“Today marks another significant milestone for eftpos as we enable more consumers with an iPhone or Apple Watch to choose eftpos to make a transaction from their CHQ or SAV account,” Mr Jennings said.

In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch. To set up Apple Pay, cardholders from participating banks and credit unions simply need to open the Apple Wallet app in iOS 11 and follow the prompts.
