Your ATM card allows for cash withdrawals at any Automated Teller Machine displaying the STAR®, PLUS® or CO-OP® logos.

No, our Mastercard® Credit Cards and Visa® Debit Cards are contact smart cards that require you to insert the card for identification purposes. The chip must make contact with the card reader to retrieve personal information and make secure payments. Therefore, our cards cannot be scanned from a distance. This feature makes it more difficult for fraud to occur.

Contactless payment systems are credit and debit cards, key fobs, smart cards or other devices that use radio-frequency identification for making secure payments. The embedded chip and antenna enable a consumer to wave their card or fob over a card reader at the point of sale. APCI FCU does not utilize this type of card technology which is capable of being scanned from a certain distance.

 

Yes. Mastercard and Visa have required US issuers to participate in its account updater services – Mastercard Automatic Billing Updater (MABU) and Visa Account Updater (VAU).

Yes.

No. Merchants are not required to participate in this service. Because of this, it is recommended that cardholders continue to contact all merchants that they have recurring payments established with when card information changes.

Yes. If you are a Mastercard Credit Cardholder or Visa Debit Cardholder and would like to elect not to participate in these services, please fill out the Status Change Form for Mastercard Automatic Billing Updater (MABU) and Visa Account Updater (VAU). If you opt out of this service, you will need to provide each merchant with your updated account information.

If you have recurring payments set up with a specific merchant(s) on an account and the account information changes due to a card reissue, or lost card, those recurring transactions will not continue to process as normal. You will need to provide each merchant with your updated account information.

The file is sent nightly; however, how quickly a merchant receives the updated account information depends on how quickly the merchant updates their records.
