Contactless Payments

Tap & pay your way

Paying just got a lot easier. Contactless payments are like having exact change wherever you go, but even faster, more convenient, safer than cash, and touch-free.

Contactless payments are transactions made by simply holding or “tapping” your contactless debit card or the digital wallet app on your mobile device on a contactless-enabled card reader or terminal. Use anywhere you see the contactless payment symbol at checkout.

Contactless Debit Card
With your contactless WCCU Debit Mastercard®, you can make payments with a tap of your card or add it to your digital wallet. Or if you prefer, you can still insert or swipe your contactless debit card in the terminal at checkout.

Digital Wallet
If you’re like most people, you always have your phone with you. Imagine—you could leave your wallet and physical cards at home if you carry your payment and credit cards in the digital wallet on your phone. If a merchant accepts digital wallet payments, you’ve got everything you need right in your phone.

What is a digital wallet and how does it work?
A digital wallet is an app that stores your credit, debit and gift card information so you can make in-store, online, or in-app purchases in seconds with just a tap of your phone. Not only are digital wallets great for simplifying payments, they are also a great place to keep other important documents such as customer loyalty cards, membership cards, and more, organized and easily accessible. 

You can use digital wallet apps like Google WalletSamsung Wallet, or Apple Wallet on phones and smartwatches to add your WCCU Debit Mastercard®. The cards uploaded to your device will still have the same benefits and capabilities as your physical cards.

Using contactless payments are easy and fast:
  • Look for the contactless symbol or your digital wallet logo at checkout.  Tap-to-Pay-Icon-100-1.png
  • When prompted, hold your debit card or mobile device above the contactless symbol or top of the terminal for 1-2 seconds.
  • When prompted, you’ll complete the security steps to finalize your payment.
  • Once confirmed, you’re good to go. It’s that easy! 

Contactless Debit Card FAQs
