  • Get to Know Apple Pay

    What is Apple Pay?

    Apple Pay is a digital wallet from Apple which lets you use a compatible iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac or iPad to make secure contactless purchases in stores, within selected apps and participating websites in Safari, on your SCCU card.

    Which Apple devices are compatible with Apple Pay?

    Apple Pay works with:

    • iPhone SE (and later versions) in stores, within apps, and on the web in Safari
    • iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 (and later versions) within apps and on the web in Safari
    • Apple Watch in stores and within apps
    • Mac for payments on the web in Safari

    For a full list of compatible Apple Pay devices, see https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT208531

    Does Apple store the card details?

    No, your SCCU card details are not stored on the device or in the Cloud. When a card is added to Apple Pay, a Device Account Number replaces the need for the card number.

    What is the Device Account Number?

    The Device Account Number is used to make secure purchases in stores and within apps and websites. It will not work if it is compromised in any way and cannot be used outside of the device it is assigned to.

    Where can I find the Device Account Number?

    The Device Account Number can be found by opening the Wallet app, select a card and tap the (***)  symbol, then scroll down to Device Account Number.

    Does it cost me anything to use Apple Pay?

    No, it does not cost anything to use Apple Pay.

    The usual credit or debit charges apply to purchases and some retailers may apply a credit or debit card surcharge to purchases made using any payment method, contactless or chip and PIN transactions.

    Apple Pay requires an active data plan or Wi-fi connection to add your card to Apple Pay. Based upon your mobile plan and network, additional message and/or data charges may apply.

  • Setting Up Apple Pay

    Getting started with Apple Pay is easy. Here’s what you need:

    You do not need to download any additional app to use Apple Pay but the latest version of iOS and watchOS is required to set up cards in Apple Pay.

    Can a single card be added to multiple Apple Pay wallets?

    Yes, a card can be added to Apple Pay on multiple devices. Your card will need to be added to each device separately.

    Can multiple cards be added to a single Apple Pay wallet?

    Yes, but it depends on the device model as to how many cards can be added to Apple Pay. On newer devices, such as the iPhone X, you can add up to 12 cards, earlier models will allow you to add up to eight cards. The first card added to the device will become the default card, but this can be changed. You must be the owner of all cards you add.
