Do I need network access to make a purchase?
No. Your phone (powered and unlocked) has everything you need to complete a purchase at a retailer, whether or not you have network access at that time.  As with card purchases, you may not complete a purchase if the retailer's POS terminal is off-line or unavailable.  You will need network access to receive transaction notifications from Apple.

Is there a maximum dollar amount for a purchase?
No, there is no maximum value for Apple Pay® transactions, since each purchase is verified within Apple Pay® using Touch ID or passcode (as long as you do not exceed your MEMBER CARD® ATM and Point-of-Sale (POS) daily spending limit).

Is my account number stored on my phone?
No, your account number is replaced with a secure digital number known as a token. The token represents your Unity Credit Union card and is used to make secure purchases, both in-app and in-store.

How is Apple Pay® secured?
Each Apple Pay® transaction requires your authorization through TouchID or a passcode. Your card number is not shared with the merchant or saved on your iOS device, instead using a secure token to complete the purchase.

How do I do a refund?
Refunds are initiated by the merchant at their POS terminal, following the same rules as refunds do today. It is recommended that you bring your physical card with you.
