Now a days, I just tell them paywave/masterpass and pay with android or samsung pay. No need to explain too much. Unless they also don't know what is paywave or masterpass then...
wah friend... you use master pass on a physical merchant arh?

i think you mean paypass...

masterpass is only for online virtual merchant, or taxis when you need to authenticate a merchant and link the payment up before making a purchase..

sometimes i don't even allow merchants to dictate how i should make my payment, when its supported as an official payment method.

some unscrupulous merchants will add surcharge on contactless payment, commonly seen in SLS and other smaller merchants, this is totally unacceptable if they didn't inform upfront before collecting payment. Those quietly quietly add surcharge one i'll complain to MAS.

haha I was in a good mood, just took out my card from wallet, dun wanna up my blood pressure
well if you're fine with it, what else can we say..

anyway, its the responsibility of us, the consumers of contactless payments, to educate the society on the progress of such payment methods. if all of us don't use and don't educate, we all will suffer together lor.

I always like to quote the Fish & Co at bugis+, they have been trained by me and whipped by me so harsh till the point each one of the permanent staff there knows that they support samsung pay, despite having no tap and pay terminal, thanks to MST.

you can don't open the main samsung pay app.

you can choose to swipe up the samsung pay app from home screen or lock screen, depending on what you set. its often easier to launch by doing so that entering the app, cos the app will load a bunch of promos which you don't need when making payment..

you can refer to the guide here:

Hi,

Do you guys ever encounter situations where you try to use MST, but the cashier said must insert card first then they can key in the amount. In the end, cannot use. It's happened to me twice at different places now. How to counter this?

Second question - I see on reddit that in other countries they can use samsung pay points to exchange for samsung products like gear watch, wireless charger, etc. Do we have that in Singapore? I'm new to Samsung, only used it for a few months so far.
Been using MST for most of my transactions. Best way to "educate" the cashiers out there is to tap your phones on the side of the terminals before the amount is entered.

Note this method does not work on places where the amount of the transaction is keyed in automatically by the cashier. Examples of such terminals are found at 4 fingers and Challenger.

Strange the sales guy keep insisting his terminal cannot even though I tried to tell him shouldnt be problem, in the end still refuse to let me try!$#@
Yeah, I've personally used it before. You have to tap your phone at the side of the terminal before the amount is entered bro, hahaha

ezlink can be used with special SIM card right? Or there’s no need for a special SIM card? If there’s a need, when we put into the phone, will it affect Samsung Pay? NFC/MST

You will need nfc EZ-Link SIM card. No both Samsung pay and ezlink cars operate on different algorithms..
