u r using samsung devices right? seems like samsung devices faster.
older models of apple watch and iphone are slower in nfc, so cannot achieve half a sec speed compared to latest models.
for ABT, they need to check the card/virtual number whether it's registered for trial. sometimes they also charge 10 cent which may go thru mastercard network. not sure what happen in the backend but the processing/approval time is around half a sec (based on physical mastercard).

btw now i think for iphone and apple watch, the mrt reader card logo area is not the correct spot. ever since i aim my iphone at that area, always get card failed red light. today i tried tapping my apple watch at card logo area (after stop using mobile abt for some time), also get red light.
last time i just simply tap apple watch anywhere without aiming, successful rate is higher.
Yeah, I am using Samsung device, but rather than saying Samsung device faster, I would rather say I have done enough testing on my device to know where is my device signal peak point and magnetic field pattern.

I don't enjoy the same success rate with phone tho....

Not the case for me if I simply tap anywhere without aiming, failure rate sky high.... Well .....for within certain time I set for my self for each tap

Looks like I'm not the only one with the MRT gantry reader not registering Apple Pay.

I've been using for about 1 month now. There will be days where everything works flawlessly. Then all of a sudden it would not register my iphone taps and I end up having to try multiple times. I have tried to be as consistent as possible in positioning the phone vs reader surface but it's getting frustrating, especially if I hold up the queue during peak hours.

I love the convenience but the implementation really needs to be improved.

From my own experience, Google Pay on my Pixel 2 XL is far more reliable than Apple Pay on my iPhone X... Not sure why this is so though.

FAQ

Using  Pay on Singapore's Transportation Network
You'll need to sign up for an ABT account here — https://www.transitlink.com.sg/abtmobile/

If you've already got an ABT account. All you need to do is to simply register the same card you've added onto your  Pay with ABT.
Then head down to any three of the transit link ticket office to get your virtual cards registered during this trial period. You'll need to flash this poster to be eligible. If you have an Apple Watch and an iPhone, you'll need to tell the Staff at the transit link office to enrol you twice

For more information please read the following — https://abt.transitlink.com.sg/Downl...t%20Notice.pdf

Yes, cos I'm also involved with a consultancy company dealing with transit payments and we are interested in the progress of LTA and TL. TfL is doing it well, but their fare rules are much simpler.

TfL's system appears better at detecting the phone too. Had a chance last year to use it and I never had an issue during the week I was there.

My company gave me an Oyster Card then. Would try it the next time I’m there! The Japanese NFC-F implementation still feels like the gold standard, pity that Octopus (and the entire HK) is not taking contactless payments seriously cos of their concerns over wireless payment security.

i thought octopus card is widely used in hk? when apple pay just released in hk, there were reports comparing apple pay and octopus. more ppl prefer to use octopus because it can be used everywhere and tapping wallet is fast. apple pay needs to find a credit card terminal.
btw, octopus card is already on samsung pay.

Normal credit card, like how SG is doing it too. I think SG only need an account just for the trial, and when it rolls out properly I doubt you need an account.

Even TfL you can link your apple pay card to your account to track your transactions, but it's not mandatory.
