Anyone try today with Apple Pay? Maybe it will work 2days in advance.
Tried using 🍎 Watch series 4 during lunch time.
Not working.

Sorry for the ignorance, again.

So I知 intending to use my POSB Everyday Card via Apple Pay to incur the transactions and I got the following questions:

1.) Is POSB Everyday Card eligible? It doesn稚 have a Tap & Go feature that I知 aware of.

2.) Do I need to go to the GTM to convert my Cepas wallet to bank card even if I知 not using the physical card as I知 using Apple Pay?

Thanks a lot!

1) It値l work so long as the card comes with wireless payment function - PayWave/PayPass.

2) You値l still need to visit the GTM to convert your card. (As far as what I know)

You値l still need to visit the GTM if your card has both CEPAS & PayWave/PayPass function.

If you do not convert mode of payment at GTM, I believe it値l still try to deduct payment from your CEPAS wallet instead of 撤ayWave.


As quoted from SimplyGo痴 website:

How do I enable my Mastercard/Visa contactless bank card for transit?

For Mastercard/Visa contactless bank cards that do not have EZ-LINK/NETS FlashPay functionality, no additional action is required after you linked them to your ABT Account.

For contactless bank cards that come with EZ-Link/NETS FlashPay functionality, the EZ-Link/NETS FlashPay function will be the default payment mode for transit. You will need to visit the General Ticketing Machines at any train station to switch to contactless payment mode. This can be performed five (5) days after receiving the confirmation email of your card registration. Please note that your EZ-Link/NETS FlashPay purse has to be active in order to switch to contactless payment mode for ABT.

From what I read in this forums is that " no need" unless you want to track your rides.
