discussed before already. popular bookstore's management officially refuses to accept phone payment. when cashiers (who follow orders) see u taking out your phone (nothing to do with the word "apple pay" or "samsung pay". u say paywave/paypass then take out phone also same.) they will immediately tell u their management rejects phone.
but some branches may not follow orders and let u use.
diff branch diff policy.
What's the reasoning for it?

Anyways, if you wave phone over and you are charged, don't think they will guai lan and refund you and ask you to pay with card instead.

yeah u can say paywave/paypass then when the cashier didn't notice then quickly take out phone and tap. but that's not very good.
and at popular or some shops, i saw some counter they put the paywave reader inside the counter so that u cannot tap yourself. the cashier tap for u.

Still wondering why Popular doesn't accept phone payment though.

I did look at the earlier posts, seems like only got mention that the receipt don't show rebates properly? But who cares about that, as long as it's awarded.

maybe for their accounting purposes or their agreement with banks. not sure.
or because some branch managers don't want to accept... that's why diff branch diff policy.
need their spokesperson to come here explain.

dbs atm should be NETS Flashpay or NETS POS rite?
or u mean dbs visa debit card with paywave.
because Mac terminal can support both cc and flashpay... just want to make sure u didn't select wrongly if u r using kiosk, or the cashier didn't press the wrong flashpay button for u.

Don't think you need data for Apple Pay to work. The other time I used Apple Pay at popular and forgot to turn my data back on after using free wifi and it worked

Delete old card. Enter new card. I mean, how hard is that? New card have a diff CCV so just delete and add a new one.
It's not hard to add another card but dun give the wrong info if u're unsure . Old card in my Apple wallet still works after I activated my new cc

All my Paywave receipts always indicate that it's an offline transaction.

No need connection, they will settle with bank later on.

then did u use your physical paywave/paypass card and get thru?
and is your data roaming turned on? just wan to confirm cause someone successfully use it overseas with data roaming.
It was the first night so no roaming turn on. So it could be the reason. I just paid cash to avoid the hassle so didn't try my physical card.

But seems like already confirm no need Internet.

New dbs atm card include visa and paywave function while posb atm card include master paypass. They act as debit card deducting from your saving acct. And not my 1st time using apple pay. Prior to that, i had use at ntuc and addidas shop telling them paying via paywave. I told the mcd cashier paywave too. But some how it fail. So not sure what is the issue this time.

dbs atm should be NETS Flashpay or NETS POS rite?
or u mean dbs visa debit card with paywave.

there is no surcharge from uber and grab. but there will be a currency conversion fee from the bank so you might want to check the bank fee if you use credit card for uber and grab because the fare are charged overseas using sgd.

therefore the overcome this issue, i used paypal as the middleman for paying all my uber fare.
i used SCB Singpost Apple Pay to pay for Uber. My receipt indicated fare of $6.40. I was billed USD 4.73 which translated to $6.63. Why was my bill in USD? Is it because I used Apple Pay?

there is no separate billing line for the DCC charge..
