Cardholders at CSCU's member credit unions will be able to enroll their
existing credit union Visa cards and other payment card accounts into V.me,
allowing them to make purchases online by simply entering a user name and
password at checkout. As V.me acceptance gains momentum at a growing number of
eCommerce merchants, Visa will work closely with CSCU to more broadly deliver
the digital wallet service to consumers.

"As online, mobile, and physical payment environments converge, we are excited
to provide our credit unions and their members access to the next-generation
of payments solutions with V.me," said Robert Hackney, president of CSCU.

V.me presents an opportunity for issuing credit unions to strengthen account
holder relationships by offering a new service that addresses the growing
trend towards shopping online. Through credit union branding and Visa-backing,
account holders can shop with comfort and checkout with ease knowing they're
protected by layers of security within Visa's industry-leading network. Once
logged into V.me, all that's required to make a purchase is a simple click of
a mouse, touch on a mobile browser, or in the future, a wave at the physical
point-of-sale.
