A safe, convenient, and easy way to pay
Oregonians CU members have the option of using Apple Pay to complete their debit or credit purchases with participating retailers and within apps. Apple Pay lets you use iPhone or Apple Watch to pay in over a million stores accepting contactless payments. You can also make purchases within participating apps. And more stores and apps are accepting Apple Pay every day.
And because your card details are never shared when you use Apple Pay — in fact, they aren’t stored on your device at all — using Apple Pay is the safer and more private way to pay.
Look for one of these symbols at checkout:
Getting started with Apple Pay
- Open the Wallet app on your iPhone or Apple Watch with iOS 8.1 or later.
- Swipe down and select the plus sign to add your debit or credit card.
- Enter your Oregonians card number manually or use your device’s camera to upload it
Note: If your Oregonians card is already on file with iTunes, you may be prompted to simply enter the security code or CVV number located on the back of your card.
You may be prompted to call (844) 646-5465 to verify your account when adding your Oregonians card to your digital wallet on your mobile phone. Upon calling, you will be asked verification questions in order to confirm your identity and then your Oregonians card will be activated for use with your phone.

How does Apple Pay work?
Simply add your Oregonians credit or debit card to your Apple Wallet. Once set up, the number on the front of your OCU card will be replaced with a digital account number that will be securely stored on your Apple devices. Simply hold the device in front of a contactless reader at a participating retailer to make your payment.
How is this more secure?
Only the digital account number is passed on to the retailer. Your payment details including account name and number are never shared with the retailer or seen by the cashier. This reduces the threat of personal data being compromised. If your mobile device is ever lost or stolen, you won’t need to cancel the cards attached to your Apple Pay account. You can just reset your digital account number remotely using iCloud.
Why am I being asked to verify my Oregonians card in Apple Pay?
This is for security reasons, we may need you to verify certain information. The app will tell you specifically what steps you need to take to verify your card if they are needed. The verification phone number is 844-646-5465.
What if my Apple device is lost or stolen?
If your Apple device is lost or stolen, use "Find My Apple Device" to quickly suspend or remove your digital account numbers for the respective device.
