What is SimplyGo/ABT?


Is there a way to track my transactions?

Register for an account at the SimplyGo Portal and register the card you'll be using for your journeys. Transactions will take about 1 day to appear
Can we track transactions from Apple Watch?
How do we add the apple Watch card number to SimplyGo as the card number is diff from the physical card no?

Thanks

The virtual cards will tie back to the physical card you've registered on the portal (that's what happened during the trial)

hmm.. does that sound right?

the whole point of Apple Pay is not to send actual credit card info to merchants.

When you make a purchase, Apple Pay uses a device-specific number and unique transaction code. So your card number is never stored on your device or on Apple servers, and when you pay, your card numbers are never shared by Apple with merchants.

When you pay with a debit or credit card, Apple Pay doesn’t keep transaction information that can be tied back to you.

Well, when I registered for the ABT Mobile Trial. I wasn't asked for my ABT account username.

All I did was register my virtual card with transitlink and magically it appeared in my account.

i don't think you understood how it works.

Every virtual card has to be linked to a physical card number in order to work. Using apple pay for transit is the same as making any retail purchase.

Well, when I registered for the ABT Mobile Trial. I wasn't asked for my ABT account username.

That process is whitelisting the device and the virtual card number. Fortunately, it only applicable for the trial, not actual release.

Can we track transactions from Apple Watch?
How do we add the apple Watch card number to SimplyGo as the card number is diff from the physical card no?

Thanks
add the physical card onto simplygo portal, and the transaction will appear.

On 4th April supposed to be can

I guess personally I won't use Apple Watch unless for bus-only journeys. MRT gantries are on the right hand side, and I prefer to wear my watch on my left wrist.

Not anymore in the near future I believe. The new Apple credit card has no numbers etched and users are free to re-generate the CVV as well as the 16 digit card number within their Apple Pay Wallet.

Wouldn't be surprised if banks start following suit.
This is the way forward.

Until CePAS can be added into our Wallets as a transit card.
 Watches remain to be the fastest way to tap and go since we're not required to authenticate.

Yes it's fast. But based on my experience using Apple Watch during the pilot, I had to twist my body awkwardly to tap my watch.

Btw, it reminds of Tim Cook's visit in Shanghai.

So we still need to link the MasterCard at the mrt office first before we add into Apple Pay

To double click to enabled Apple Pay to transit is bad way to implement this system would have do it as the same as japan tap and go
