Apple Pay now available at SCU

SYDNEY, New South Wales — 15th November, 2016 — SCU today brings its members Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.

"The wait is finally over for SCU Members that have been anticipating Apple Pay, and now they will be able to add their SCU Card and enjoy an easier and more convenient way to pay,” said Ashley Jennings, SCU CEO. "Our members want payment methods that are convenient to their lifestyles. With more and more reliance placed on our iPhones for everyday banking, it only makes sense that members also want the ability to use Apple Pay. Today, we are very proud to be able to offer this to our valued members.” 

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.

Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch. 

Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
