Quick Advice about Contactless Payments

Contactless payments are becoming the new normal.

Mobile wallets are gaining in popularity around the world because of their convenience, security, and — more recently — their contactless appeal. The most prevalent mobile wallets include Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay. Each one allows you to input your credit and/or debit card information into a mobile device and make purchases both in-person and online, if accepted by the merchant.

  1. 1 Timing of Transfers: Transfers to remove the funds from the Sender’s Account may take place immediately. However, the timing of funds received will depend on when the Recipient responds to the email and when their financial institution posts the Transfer. The posting of the Transfer is dependent on the business days of that institution. Issues Affecting the Posting of Transfers: Other events may affect the timing or success of a Transfer reaching the intended Recipient. Such events may include, but are not limited to, errors made by the Sender or Recipient in entering information, inaccurate account or card number information, delays in posting by the receiving institution, acts of God, and network and NACHA interruptions. If we believe the Transfer may be illegal, we may decline or reverse the Transfer. The receiving institution may choose not to post the Transfer or to delay posting the Transfer. Neither the Credit Union nor the Service Provider is responsible for any delays in the Transfer of funds or the posting of funds to the Recipient’s Account. You may have certain rights and responsibilities regarding the failure to timely post transactions and you are encouraged to pursue dispute resolution with the receiving financial institution.
