What evoucher?
When you update the transitlink app from android, it will appear as one of the feature in which you can buy prepaid credits for people to use. Not sure if this is updated for iOS app yet.

Will this evoucher thing be ABT’s solution to suica style virtual card on the iPhone? Where they’ll still allow Apple to introduce ez-link in iPhone while keeping transaction records entirely separate from CEPAS by using evouchers

Just noticed this eVoucher thing on the ABT site, has anyone tried it out yet?

No? this feature is entirely different from suica and i guess you're thinking too much into it.

eVoucher is like a prepaid credits which can be registered to your own CAN, or another recipient's CAN. It is not an automatic process, as a physical card is needed to top up from GTM, AVM or transitlink office.

This is more useful for school going children topping up their cepas card and even for elderly. You will also find this useful for tourists with local friends who can lend their own ezlink to their friends.

This eVoucher thingy has been in force since 2015 and its not a new system. This feature is new cos its just being incorporated into the app and is made available for public. Previously, this eVoucher feature was used by the government to issue transport credits for not-so-well-to-do households with school going children..

Oh, so basically if I buy an eVoucher for my ezlink card, I'll still have to go to one of those machine to claim the credits, as if i'm topping up my ezlink card?

ABT merely allows you to monitor your transaction of cepas cards provided you have already added the CAN into your wallet.

Cepas card still require topping up of funds either manual or automatically...

using OCBC TR with Pixel 2XL and Samsung Gear S3
both are working well so far

only complaint is the speed - wish it's a little faster
Hi do you need to unlock and start Google pay app, or is it more like the iPhone + Suica experience where you just tap the phone?

Google pay requires user to unlock the screen and tap, provided the registered card is already the default card.

Gear s3 uses Samsung pay, which requires manual activation of card before tapping.

The suica experience only Samsung pay beta is supporting as of now, which I'm trialling this new app now.

Middle part around the card logo is the best location to place the phone.

Tried taking the bus earlier & none of the readers are able to read from phone / watch

There are still a few percent of battery reserves. Probably thatís whatís keeping the nfc alive.
