Cara Credit Union, with branches in Tralee, Castleisland, Killorglin, Ballyduff and Causeway is delighted to announce a significant enhancement to their Current Account service with the introduction of Apple Pay. With the introduction of Google Pay and Fitbit Pay late last year, Apple Pay now completes the digital wallet offering for Cara Credit Union’s Mastercard Debit Card holders.
Speaking to Pa Laide, CEO of Cara Credit Union, “We are pleased to bring you a safer way to pay, giving you the freedom to securely spend without a €50 contactless limit, touch-free with Apple Pay. You can now use your Apple device to pay with your Credit Union Debit Card wherever you see the Apple Pay or Contactless logo in store, online or in-app. With the introduction of Google Pay and Fitbit Pay late last year, Apple Pay now completes the digital wallet. Additionally, we have also launched a new and much improved mobile App for all our members. The new app gives you complete control of your Cara Credit Union account 24/7, at home or on the go.”
The use of digital wallet payments provides a safer more secure way to pay that removes the need to handle payment cards, touch physical buttons or exchange cash. It’s the modern way to pay, particularly given the times we live in. The good news is that, with a Cara Credit Union Current Account, you can tap away in the knowledge that contactless payments are free.
To set-up Apple Pay, Google Pay and/or Fitbit Pay, just download the app, enter your Debit Mastercard details by scanning the card or entering the details manually, and submit a One Time Passcode. You can use it wherever Contactless payments are accepted. You simply hold your mobile phone and/or Fitbit device near a payment terminal to make a Contactless payment.
Pa added, “ The introduction of our Mastercard Debit Card has been a game-changer for our members. We are now in a position whereby our loyal members can do all their day-to-day banking with their local credit union, from anywhere in the world. From recent surveys, we know our members want to support us, but they also want convenience and modern banking services and now we are delighted to bring this to fruition. “
