Not yet..

Based on faq, Samsung pay can set payment card as default, to kick out the nfc ezlink from interfering, but so far cannot add yet, no such option also.

So to avoid all the hassle, I used my gear sport instead.

Apple users can also use their Apple watches to try first to avoid the hassle of authentication..

Does your Samsung Pay virtual card number appears in your ABT "My Card" section?

Registered on Friday and I’ve just tried it on my iPhone on a bus today. Works like a charm! Though I haven’t tried like a hybrid (MRT + bus) ride.

There wouldn’t be any transactions recorded in the Apple Pay wallet but just the usually tick that a transaction is successful.

Thanks for the tip off here. Registered last Fri. Just tried on bus with iPhone 7. Worked! Will try with Apple Watch on MRT later.

Long post ahead:

Now with mobile payments for public transport, I was looking into completely removing my dependence on my wallet and just relying on phone for payments and cash.

As much as I would like to pay everything with apple pay, Singapore is still mostly a cash first country. I was thinking of setting up a uob account with a mastercard to use their contactless ATMs, but I'm quite comfortable with OCBC at the moment and putting just 500-700 in a uob account just to withdraw cash seems a bit silly when I have 2 bank accounts already.

Then I recalled that I passed by an advertisement for an app that you can draw money from retailers nearby, socash. Just now during lunch I tried it out and it was quite interesting; there was a retailer near my workplace that offered socash and I managed to withdraw $30 via the app. All you need to do is to scan the retailer's QR code using the app, and they will direct you to log into your DBS account to authorize a payment to the app. And within a second the funds transfered over and the lady at the shop passed me $30.

I'm definitely not working for these guys but I thought it's an interesting app to use, especially for those who want to leave their house with only a phone. And right now new joiners during April can get $5 promo: e.g. You withdraw $30 from you bank account to the app and you only get deducted $25.

Link to the app:

Anybody got this error when registering a new card at ABT? I am trying to register my SCB Unlimited Master Card which I already added to Apple Pay.
An error has been identified and we are unable to add this card to your account. Please re-enter the correct card information.

Looks familiar, I might have encountered it when i was trying to re-enable my passion card. How far did you go before you faced this issue?
