Great news! Now, members can add any EECU MasterCard® credit or debit card to Apple Pay to pay in stores and in apps with a single touch. We are excited to offer this service to our members who we know are eager to use this service on their phones.

Apple Pay offers many great benefits:

  • An Easier Way to Pay—Members are able to make purchases at hundreds of thousands of stores and in participating apps.
  • Pay with a Single Touch—Once members load an EECU credit or debit card to Apple Pay, they can pay for purchases by holding their phone near point-of-sale terminal readers with their fingers on TouchID™. There’s no need to open an app or even wake the phone.
  • A Secure Way to Pay—Apple Pay uses the latest security technology. Every transaction is authorized with TouchID™ or passcode.
