MacBook Pro with Touch ID*:

If requested, follow additional steps to verify your card.  After you confirm your Unitus card has been added to your eligible device, you’re ready to use it in Apple Pay.

Please call us immediately at 1.800.452.0900, opt. 1, during regular business hours, (Monday – Friday 7:25 AM – 6:05 PM or Saturday 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM) (you may also use our automated system to block your card by pressing opt. 5).  We will close your card so that no more purchases can be made.  You should also remove the lost or stolen card from your Wallet or the Apple Watch app using the “Remove Card” option.  When you receive your replacement card, you will need to add the new card to Apple Pay before making any Apple Pay purchases.

Apple Pay will work with most Unitus consumer and small business Visa® credit cards and debit cards.

For security reasons, we may need you to provide additional verification to add your Unitus card to Apple Pay. If necessary, Wallet or the Apple Watch app will provide instructions.  Upon verification, you should receive a Wallet or Apple Watch app notification that your card is ready for Apple Pay.  If you haven’t received a notification after an hour, please call us at the toll-free number on the back of your card.

Apple Pay is available on your Apple Pay enabled iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch1 in participating merchant apps, and you can use Apple Pay with your iPhone and Apple Watch1 at more than a million stores and restaurants whose payment terminals are set up to accept contactless payments.  You can also make purchases from participating online merchants via the Safari browser.

View the list of merchants at the Apple Pay site.

If you make an Apple Pay purchase with your Unitus card, the merchant may request authorization for an initial amount and send us the actual transaction amount later for payment. The initial authorized amount appears in your Wallet, but the actual transaction amount is deducted from your account.

This happens frequently in places where:

  • You can add a tip (restaurants, salons)
  • There can be a significant difference between the amount that’s authorized initially and the actual transaction amount (hotels, car rental agencies)

For most card purchases, we receive the payment request, including the actual transaction amount, within 3 business days of the transaction.

Rest assured, your Unitus debit card and credit card automatically come with the built-in security of our 24×7 fraud monitoring and Visa’s Zero Liability protection.  If your card, or its number, is ever lost or stolen, you’re not responsible for unauthorized transactions when you report them promptly.

To dispute a Unitus transaction you see posted to your account please call 800-452-0900, opt. 1, during regular business hours, (Monday – Friday 7:25 AM – 6:05 PM or Saturday 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM)

No.  Apple Pay is provided as a complementary service to Unitus cardholders.

The safety and security of your account information is of the highest importance.

As a security measure, you may receive a “verification required” message when adding your card to Apple Pay.  Once verified, an on-screen message will appear stating that the card is ready for use.  This verification is part of our multi-layered approach to security in payments.

Additionally, when we review mobile wallet providers we look for payment safety, quality of service, and ease of use for our members.  When you make payments with Apple Pay and your Unitus card:

  • Your full card number is not shown to the merchant or to Apple Pay.
  • All transactions are monitored by Unitus’ 24×7 risk and fraud detection systems.
  • Purchases made using Apple Pay are protected by Visa’s Zero Liability policies, so you won’t be held responsible for promptly reported unauthorized transactions.

You can use Apple Pay on eligible iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, MacBook Pro with Touch ID and Macs (Safari browser only) using the latest operating systems.  Please visit Apple Pay at  for the most current listing of compatible devices and operating system requirements.
