You mean the Ezlink app?
Yep. Seems displays empty white screen after entering the credit card info.

Question - did anybody had any success to top up Ezlink card via Android NFC app recently?
I went into the app, but it still shows a 30 cent transaction fee.

Used GTM yesterday to top up via paywave ezlink purse on FEVO card using the same FEVO MC purse. Worked fine and no additional fee was imposed. So app is irrelevant now.

But what about those of us who don't use FEVO, and would like to continue to use the My EZ-Link Mobile app on Android.

FEVO is irrelevant for this case. You can use any Ezlink card (co-branded or stand-alone) to top up from any credit card (contactless option or without).

As for as app - I would not have too much hopes that it will be resolved. Look at what they've done with Activate website or their apps for other products. Heck, Top and Tap uses the same unsigned Java applet written for Java 1.5x version and all modern browsers will not work with top and tap.

So then I misunderstood. Tell me again, which app are you using to top up the Ezlink card?

Hi, can I ask. I have a few flash pay card. If I withdraw the money inside does it mean I can't use the card anymore in future?

Yes, once you asked for refund, the card cannot be used anymore. Was told at the transitlink office when i refunded my card which is expiring soon.

So another option is to spend down the card balance. For example, let's suppose you have a $16.38 balance left on your card. Try to buy something you would normally buy that costs more than the remaining balance, and ask the merchant if you can charge exactly $16.38 on the card and pay the rest in cash. If the merchant doesn't cooperate, buy something you would normally buy that is priced by weight. Bananas work pretty well, as an example. Then just buy enough bananas to consume all or nearly all of the remaining balance. If you then have 3 cents left on the card (because you couldn't find the exact rounding banana), don't worry about it.

When I said that I was referring to GTM at MRT stations - top up Ezlink card using any credit card.

Android Ezlink topup app does not work for me any more.

I don't think that works since we're talking about zeroing out NETS FlashPay cards. However, I think SP Services might accept NETS FlashPay at their own service counters and possibly also at 7-Eleven stores and post offices. If that's correct, they would let you pay any precise amount you wish to drain the remaining balance from your NETS FlashPay card. That'd work well. You still have to pay the rest of your bill, of course.

Make sure you shut off Automatic Top Up (ATU) on those NETS FlashPay cards before you try to drain them.

Upon reflection, if you find a shop or supermarket that sells bulk foods by weight -- there are such shops in Singapore -- then you can buy precisely the right amount of bulk food to equal any specific monetary amount. That'll work better than bananas at Giant. Bulk rice would work really well, but even bulk peanuts or coffee beans should get the job done. Tell the shopkeeper you want precisely $8.32 worth of rice (or whatever the amount), or weigh it yourself if allowed, and there you go.

If the Post Office accepts NETS FlashPay, how about buying some postage stamps? You can definitely buy postage stamps in 30 cent increments (20 gram local letter rate), but I think the Post Office will sell you smaller denomination stamps, too. So you should be able to get a very precise amount this way. Then just hang onto the stamps until you want to mail a letter. If you only have 15 cents worth of stamps left, and need to mail a 30 cent letter, then just stop by the Post Office again to buy "top up" postage.
