Courtesy Pay

Mistakes happen. We understand.

We’ve all done it…forgotten to account for a payment we’ve made, had a transaction denied at checkout and experienced the embarrassment and extra expense of a returned payment.

When unexpected expenses and unforeseen problems can leave you with too little cash in your checking account, having a payment returned due to insufficient funds can be a costly, inconvenient and embarrassing experience.  That’s why we provide our Courtesy Pay service.

Android Pay

Android Pay

Android Pay is currently available for our MasterCard Debit Cards. Members with a compatible smart phone can use Android Pay at millions of stores across the US and inside your favorite apps, with just the touch of a finger.

Even better, Android Pay is more secure than swiping your card at a retailer. Why? For 2 reasons:

  1. Biometric Security – You must use your thumbprint to complete the purchase. This ensures that you – and only you – are performing the transaction.
  2. Your Card Number is Not Used – Instead of your 16-digit card number being passed to the merchant, Android Pay passes a secure token to validate and approve the transaction.
