Apple Pay Now at Star USA!

Apple Pay, the easy, secure, and private way to pay, is now available at Star USA. You may access your checking account with this innovative method of payment at participating merchants.

Use Apple Pay with iPhone 6 to pay in stores without swiping your cards and in apps without entering payment and contact information. Just pay with a single touch of your finger using Touch ID.

With Apple Pay, instead of using your actual debit card, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored. And when you make a purchase, the Device Account Number alongside a transactionspecific dynamic security code is used to process your payment. So your actual debit card numbers are never shared by Apple with merchants or transmitted with payment.

In addition, paying with Apple Pay is private as the cashier never sees your name, card numbers or security code. This is just another way that Star USA is keeping you on the cutting edge of financial technology. If you would like assistance or have questions, contact us at any of our convenient locations.

EMV Chip Cards Coming Soon

In just a few months, you will be receiving new debit cards with an added feature. Your new card will contain an embedded chip that uses secure technology to make it more difficult to copy your account information which provides more security against fraud.

Your new chip card will replace your existing Star USA debit card which will expire 15 days after the receipt of your new card. Please activate your EMV debit card as soon as it is received.

If you have your existing Star USA debit card on file with any merchant that you have authorized to automatically charge your account, you will need to update the new card number, expiration date and CVV code with that business.

Chip cards are being issued to provide additional security and to help keep your accounts safe. If you have questions, please contact a Star USA representative today.
