It’s easy to use your Dupaco credit card or debit card right from your phone with mobile payments.

General Mobile Payment FAQs

Dupaco’s Visa credit card and debit EMV MoneyCard are compatible with Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay.

Mobile payments use Near Field Communication (NFC) to make secure, tokenized transactions. NFC is a technology that allows phone users to communicate with payment terminals that display the contactless communication icon. One-time tokens are created for every transaction meaning that sensitive card data is not provided to merchants nor stored on the phone device. When a transaction occurs, this token is sent to the payment processors where under significant security the token is matched to the actual card number conducting the transaction.

Mobile payment technologies incorporate a variety of security precautions including a tokenized card number. This means your smartphone will not send your actual card information but rather a virtual account number that “stands in” for your actual card number during purchases. Major retailers, phone providers and card brands support the safety and security of this product.

As we have observed in the past several years, card breaches are often the result of malicious malware infecting a retailer’s computer system. With tokenization, merchants no longer store card information reducing the likelihood of widespread card compromises. Tokenization coupled with biometric authorization offer new security tools to minimize the risk of card information falling into the wrong hands.

Dupaco members can use their smartphone to make mobile payments at payment terminals accepting Near Field Communication (NFC). These terminals display a contactless payment symbol.

Questions about loading a card into mobile payment systems may be directed to Dupaco’s card services department by calling 800-373-7600 or 563-557-7600, ext 201, or by email at service@dupaco.com.

If you lose your phone, you should call Dupaco right away to report it as a lost or stolen card. We can stop the tokenization of your Visa credit card or EMV MoneyCard debit card on the device. You should also check your phone manufacturer’s website for information on how to locate or disable your phone if it is lost or stolen.

Apple Pay FAQs

In testing, Apple has been able to demonstrate electronic payment via smart phone is faster and more efficient than a traditional card swipe.

At this time, Dupaco does not plan to charge members a fee for using Apple Pay.

Card transactions on Apple Pay will post much the same way transactions do today. There are a variety of security layers in place (associated with the card number tokenization) but items will still post to your monthly account statements.

Recent evolution of Apple Pay allows iPhone users to send money through text messages. Money that is received through Apple Pay this way gets added to your Apple Pay Cash card that lives in the Apple Wallet app. You can start using the cash right away to make purchases using Apple Pay in stores, apps and the web.
