As in which bank ah
Doubt Citibank will go with it as it went with Sammy
Bet our local banks will go with it
APC uses a bank client to host the Apple Pay Cash Card, which you can use to pay in stores, apps or transfer to your own account.

If APC launches in Singapore it must work with a bank to host the Cash Card. Itíll likely be one of the banks which already support Apple Pay at the moment.

Highly doubt itíll happen though because Singapore isnít as big of a market compared to Japan, and FeliCa is the de facto standard there.
yup, sg is too much as compared to japan.
the problem with such standard is that it will end up with so many standard everywhere.

that is exactly that i don't know the idea of sg creating a new cashless standard here. I would prefer a global option such as WeChat Pay.

It would be similar to how our credit cards are mainly Visa or Mastercard as they are a global standard.

a global standard is better because it mean we can use it out of sg also. and when tourist comes over to sg, they can use it here too.

Right on point, exactly what I was thinking too.

It’s better to see more shops and outlets accepting such payment modes like WeChat Pay and Contactless terminals VS creating our own.

Could be a faster movement towards a Smarter Nation.

For Ezlink Cards, not sure if it’s feasible but it can rolled out as reloadable/prepaid debit cards. People can add value to the card at terminals just like a normal Ezlink card, to cater for the younger and older people. As it is like a bank card, you could add them on your phone and treat it as contactless or Apple Pay.

Reloadable/prepaid debit cards should be safer for some as it is not tied to any savings or bank account in a case if the card is stolen or misplaced.

For concession Ezlink cards, they could do the same as reloadable/debit cards, with concession rates for that particular card.

We could also have online accounts, adding the various Ezlink cards that we have for the younger and older people and could also help top up their cards for them via online. The online accounts can also help us monitor the history of the trips and more.

yes, ezlink is also a possible solution given that most of us that uses the public transport already has one ezlink.

and the various terminals at the cashier can be confusing especially for the newer staff.
just now i was trying to pay for lunch, the staff used the wrong terminal and hence my amex wasn't accepted. i had to told her to use the other terminal that is for amex.

Seems like Apple Pay on transportations wonít be here this year.


Apple Pay on transportation will be on trial starting next year.

"As part of LTA's Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) pilot with Mastercard, the authority said it would trial the use of mobile payment methods such as Android Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay for public transport systems from the first quarter of 2018."

What a joke. First quarter next year?! Singapore is really slow in implementing new technology.

Looking at our train system right now I'd rather wait than have a system that always has issues or doesn't work.

I am sure LTA/Bank/Apple/Samsung/Google have found a way to incorporate Apple/Samsung/Android pay for transport if not they won't even announce. It's a good start, time to save money on Apple Watch 3.

At least it coming soon, we can enjoy the convenient like London/Korea/Japan.

The existing mastercard trial already uses the same NFC technology used by apple pay. The CEPAS technology mentioned by the previous user is the standard SG uses for flashpay and EZ Link, which apple does not incorporate in their phone...
