tjwolf said:I've had the Apple Card for 2 weeks now. Today I began to wonder how I'd pay it come September 30th and found out something that wasn't made very clear during sign-up and which you might find useful to know: you pretty much have to either give out your bank routing #/account # or pay with a debit card or with Apple Cash! I didn't want to do that, so I contacted Apple Card support (right from within the Wallet - nice!) and eventually spoke to a Goldman Sachs supervisor. I asked him where my account info will be kept - on my device or on Goldman servers. Answer: on Goldman Sachs servers (encrypted of course). I told him that I had prior bad experiences in which a company withdrew (accidentally) more money from my account than it was supposed to, leading me to write a check that bounced - and pay a penalty. And, besides, I didn't think it was very secure - especially for a card that's supposed to be ultra secure - to keep such information on a server where it could potentially be hacked. I insisted, therefore, on a mailing address. Which he gave me - but which is not given anywhere in the Wallet app AFAIK. In case someone wants to pay their CC using online bill pay like me, here it is:
Goldman Sachs Bank USA
Salt Lake City Branch Lockbox 6112
PO Box 7247
Philadelphia, PA 19170-6112
That address seems awfully weird, but that's what I was given. Anyway, I thought about it some more and I think what I'll actually do is simply open another account with my bank and when I want to pay my Apple Card, I'll just put enough money in it to cover my card payment. I'll enter that bank account # into Apple Card for payment.
