As of October 1, 2017, your GreenvilleHeritage FCU Visa debit and/or Visa credit cards now offer the automatic Visa Account Updater Service (VAU). This is a free service designed to make using your Visa cards for recurring payments more convenient than ever.
What is Visa Account Updater Service?
VAU is a service that will provide card number and expiration date updates to merchants who maintain card-on-file (COF) account information to process recurring customer payments.
Some examples of COF payments include: Netflix, Hulu or other streaming services; gym memberships; monthly utility bills; recurring charitable contributions; or insurance premiums.
What does the service actually do?
Account Updater Service (AUS) provides a way for GHFCU to communicate the most recent cardholder account information to Visa. Our data processor has created a special file format to send card details to the network on our behalf. In turn, Visa makes this information available to acquiring COF merchants who elect to participate in the service.
What are the benefits of this service for my organization and cardholders?
Cardholders will no longer have to provide updated card information to participating COF merchants when their card is reissued due to normal expiration or lost/stolen card. Recurring payments are more likely to be successful because updated card information is readily available to participating merchants.
Call the GHFCU Call Center at 864.467.4160 for more information on the Visa Account Updater Service or to opt out of the service for your GHFCU Visa debit and/or credit cards.
During business hours, call 864.467.4160.
"I love this bank! They know you by name and remember your face and they really make decisions on a personal basis unlike large banks where you’re just a number. I refinanced my Jeep with them and can't wait until I refinance my house with them too!"
"We left Suntrust Bank in 2009 because we didn't receive personal attention, and it became obvious we were just a number. We have been members at GHFCU ever since and have always been pleased with the service. We feel we have a true partnership in GHFCU when it comes to our financial needs."
"I've been with this credit union about fifteen years now. They've helped me purchase two cars and have always helped me when I was in a tight spot. They have some real decent people working here."
Our mission is to promote the personal financial success of our member owners by providing affordable financial services.
