I don't think anybody will be able to give you a confirmed answer here... Seems like most of us who have been commenting here have been using their mastercard as a transit payment option for almost a year, so you may be the guinea pig to test it out haha
Yah, may be my own mis-doings as well, i.e. when they launch ABT previously I didnít care much for it because to me itís still physically tapping a card(hence I didnít sign up). Iím only interested in this new one because it means I no longer need to bring my physical card anymore.

Oh I think it was the right decision for most people not to switch yet. If you already have giro set up then using one card over another doesn't make sense, whereas for me not having to top up my flashpay was so convenient. Doesn't hurt for you to try registering now, although may have complications since it's still in a trial period.

From what I've gathered, the mode selection is only for the physical scanning. You can have the card registered on portal but you still can have the freedom to use cepas mode or bank card mode.

So practically speaking, withOUT my MasterCard being actually converted to “bank card usage”, I can actually head down to the TransitLink office to bind the same virtual MasterCard to my ABT account & succeed?

Friday I'll try. That would be considered like 5/6 working days since last week, and hopefully should be safe enough.

Previous poster tried after 5 days and had issue when transiting over to different mrt lines. I don't think my itchy finger is worth paying full mrt fare haha

I registered on Fri. And I just tried tapping on a bus. The Ezlink reader indicated that my bank card is not supported. In Google Pay app, it shows "Public Transport" with the transaction in "pending" status.

Left wrist. Which is going to make tapping in on mrt a bit troublesome, but still better than having to take out my wallet hah

Left wrist for me too. I find I have to turn my left shoulder quite a bit to angle the watch face (series 2) towards the fare gate reader. Quite a few times misjudged the distance and ended up whacking the screen on the reader :-(

Technically you don't need, but it'll be faster if you double click and authenticate your fingerprint first so you don't waste time waiting for your phone to be scanned.

Was using apple pay when I was in London and it was better to do this way.

Ya I am wearing on left wrist too. Like the movement of tapping with watch not that smooth.

Miss wearing AW but feel that no point getting s3 as s4 is coming this sep.

No matter wat, taking out phone to tap is better than taking my wallet out from bag to tap. (sometime will crash with other cards too).
So, hopefully this fri try with phone will be smooth. Haha
