ATU has always been immediate for me. The only caveat is that low value top-up trigger event has to be on public transport, then will trigger top-up. Paying with insufficient value at normal retailers won't trigger topup.

I'm using ATU with BOC Family Card which gives 5% cashback on first four topups of the month. It's a nett gain even with the $0.50 topup fee.

I thought CC topup transactions on GTM would be excluded transactions by most CCs' T&C? I could be wrong.
Meaning at ERP gantry or carpark gantry will it trigger auto topup?

I remember ezlink ezreload dun trigger at eps carpark.

y dont u visit a transitlink office and ask the officer to help to activate?. just past your activation code sms to him. faster this way rather than solving your phone tech issues.
10. What items am I required to bring for the Auto Top-Up activation at TransitLink Ticket Office?

Please bring along the following items:

a. Your NETS FlashPay Card registered for Auto Top-Up
b. Activation code

https://www.nets.com.sg/support/faqs/faq-nets-flashpay

have u even checked on the FAQ?
well...
I made a trip to the Transitlink Ticket Office at Tanjong Pagar to activate the ATU and here's what happened
CUR BAL $0.00
Card status - Enabled
ATU Status - Disabled
INVALID ACC
DECLINED

The staff advised me to call NETS directly... so I called NETS office and the CSO just asked me to change my UOB Debit card...

My answer back to the CSO was:
"Hi Miss, I just received and activated this card like one week ago. ATM no problem. AXS, SAM no problem. Online Visa payment no problem.

and now you're asking me to change?! Could you help me to check"

Anyone here has this issue as well with your new card?

Lastly... there is no FAQ addressing the issue I am facing:
"Card not Read! Please remove phone case and/or use compatible device with latest firmware"

Editing:
Adding on, according to NETS CSO, the CAN number is correct, the 16-digit number on my UOB card is correct and my personal information is correct.

In fact for some of you users information, this is not the first time I am facing this issue. Last year when IMAGINE AMEX ended the ATU service, I tried to switch to NETS flashpay using my UOB direct VISA debit card since this is the next best option besides FEVO...

For a good two months, I went through a lot of trouble trying to activate the NETS Flashpay service...
i even replaced my UOB debit card three times just because the NETS CSO said that the SMART chip on my Debit card could be faulty... In the end, I gave up and just use my IMAGINE AMEX card as a regular EZ-link card until it expires in Nov 2017 this year...

If a user here went through similar problems and managed to activate his/her Nets Flashpay successfully, I would really appreciate it if you could share your experience with me... If you are not comfortable to comment here... I am one PM away...

Update:

NETS technical staff helped me to reset the link between my debit card and the ez-link for my NETS flashpay.

Now the ATU is activated! Finally...

Gonna start using today

Note: The NETS CSO also commented that if I get a new replacement, it will be good to wait about 1 day after I received the ATU activation code...then I proceed to activate the new card

u mean via website? the answer is No.

u may consider using your phone app to perform the transaction, or initiate the ATU function.

Yeah,, Thing is, I closed boc smartsaver and moved to UOB one. So I could not hit the 500 spend as I am doing that for UOB one. Next month onward UOB will not count Ez reload as eligible spend for bonus interest. So I am now not tied up and have many option to choose my next card.


Did POSB have Friday Free rides? Never knew abt it..Still on?

Am I correct that if one wants to use a card only for ez-reload/GTM top-up with max $200/mo spent, above is the only reasonable option?
