Our members now have the ability to use Apple Pay with their Bellco credit and debit cards — it's an easy, secure, and private way to make payments using your Apple® iPhone® or other mobile device.
Security and Privacy Are #1.
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay.
When a credit or debit card number is entered with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device or 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 authorized with a one-time unique security code, instead of using the security code from the back of your card.
Also, Apple Pay doesn't store the details of your transactions, so they can't be tied back to you. Your most recent purchases are kept in Passbook® for your convenience, but that's as far as it goes.
It's a Faster Way to Pay.
Once you add your Bellco Federal Credit Union card to Apple Pay, then you can use your iPhone 6®, iPhone 6 Plus®, and Apple Watch®, to pay in stores without swiping your credit card.
By simply holding your iPhone or Apple Watch near a contactless reader, payment can be made with a single touch of your finger using Touch ID. In addition, Apple Pay will allow you to pay for goods and services within apps, and is compatible with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2® and iPad mini 3®.
Apple Pay lets you pay in hundreds of thousands of stores accepting contactless payments. And there are more stores and apps being added every day.
Setup is Simple.
Passbook already stores your boarding passes, tickets, coupons, and more. Now it can store your credit cards too!
To get started:
- You can add the card used in your iTunes® account to Passbook by simply entering the card security code. The card you had stored in iTunes is your default payment card, but you can always switch it in "Settings."
- To add a new card, go into "Settings," open "Passbook & Apple Pay," and select "Add Credit or Debit Card."
- On iPhone, you can also just open Passbook, then swipe down and tap the plus sign. From there, use your iSight® camera to enter the card information or type it in manually.
