Card Services for Credit Unions Adds New Mobile Payment Options

“Our member credit unions will experience increased transactions that come with a simplified digital shopping experience, while cardholders will enjoy its convenience, security and ease of use.”Kristi Mackey, CSCU assistant vice president of client services and products

Card Services for Credit Unions (CSCU) has added two new options to a suite of products that can help credit unions better serve members who are increasingly turning to their computers, mobile phones or tablets to make payments.

One of those options, MasterCard’s new MasterPass digital wallet service, lets cardholders use an enabled mobile device to make one-touch payments at any retailer that accepts MasterPass. Member credit unions also can offer digital-wallet access through their websites, CSCU says, so that users can safely store card information and use other branded credit, debit and prepaid cards to make transactions.

“Our member credit unions will experience increased transactions that come with a simplified digital shopping experience,” says Kristi Mackey, CSCU’s assistant vice president of client services and products, “while cardholders will enjoy its convenience, security and ease of use.”

CSCU also is partnering with mobile technology and services provider Monitise to offer Bank Anywhere to CSCU’s more than 2,600 member credit unions. Bank Anywhere allows credit unions to easily introduce new mobile banking features, customize those features to match specific demographics and interact more frequently with consumers in a more contextual and personal way.

“Financial institutions are progressively being judged on their technological innovation, and those that fail to differentiate their mobile solutions risk losing market share and revenue opportunities,” says Monitise’s Lisa Stanton. “We are thrilled to be collaborating with CSCU on delivering the most advanced array of mobile banking capabilities to its extensive network of member credit unions.”

Created by and for credit unions, CSCU is the industry’s advocate, partner and leader in providing holistic payment solutions that maximize value for both credit unions and their members.
