PSCU first CUSO to offer Google Wallet
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (9/17/12)--PSCU, a credit union service organization (CUSO), has partnered with Google to become the first CUSO to offer the virtual Google Wallet.

PSCU will make card art from six of its member-owner credit unions available in the Google Wallet mobile app. When cardholders of the six participating PSCU credit unions add their cards to Google Wallet, they will see an actual image of their credit union's card.

The six credit unions participating with PSCU as early adopters of the new technology include:

  • Arkansas FCU, Jacksonville, Ark.;
  • BCU, Vernon Hills, Ill.;
  • CFE FCU, Lake Mary, Fla.;
  • GTE Financial, Tampa, Fla.;
  • TruMark Financial CU, Trevose, Pa; and
  • Vantage CU, Bridgeton, Mo.
Google Wallet is accepted at 200,000 merchant locations across the U.S. Consumer adoption of the Google Wallet app has nearly doubled since early August when Google released a new, cloud-based version of the app that supports all debit and credit cards.

PSCU is working closely with Google on other initiatives that will allow its credit unions to brand their payment cards in Google Wallet.
