In an effort to provide a more convenient and secure way for our members to conduct transactions, beginning today Coastal Federal Credit Union has joined the growing list of financial institutions whose debit and credit cards work in Apple Pay™.

Apple Pay™ allows users with an iPhone® 6 or higher; and iPad® Pro, Air 2 mini 3 and mini 4; or Apple Watch™ paired with an iPhone 5 or higher, to link their Coastal debit or credit card to their device, and securely pay for their merchandise using an encrypted token generated by the device. Instead of swiping or inserting their card, a member would use their Apple® device to wirelessly transmit encrypted payment information to the point-of-sale terminal, along with the Touch ID™ fingerprint scanner to verify the transaction.

“Coastal is committed to protecting our members’ data in the most secure ways possible,” says Chuck Purvis, Coastal’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This is just one means to that end.” Apple Pay™ also works with some mobile apps to allow users a more secure way to shop online.
