previously got forumer said popular bookstore reject samsung pay apple pay... this is confirmed. they only allow physical card because when u tap phone, their terminal cannot detect the cc type to print out rebates and redeem info in the receipt. so they claim that their terminals are not ready for phone payment until they can print out the rebates info.
even if u pay with physical card, some cashiers may ask u to take out the card to see, they don't like u to tap wallet.

i see, i'm not sure what rebates are they talking about, but lets just comply to their store policies then.

but then again, if i see the nfc reader i won't even say samsung pay. just contactless payment or pay wave pay pass lor..

some credit cards have 1-5% rebates at some shops.

the cashiers are trained already. u say paywave/paypass, then they will ask u whether u r paying with phone or card. if phone, they tell u not ready. pay by card, they want to see your card.

Tried samsung pay for the first time at streats hk cafe, first few attempts failed but idk what the cashier pressed then finally went through. The receipt indicated 'contactless sale' and 'paywave' though. Paid using my dbs debit, the terminal was ocbc, not sure if it matters.

It doesn't really matter which bank card you have. PayWave (Visa) and PayPass (Mastercard) are considered contactless sale. There are 2 types of POS terminals that can do transactions. The bigger machine with numbers uses MST, the contactless reader uses NFC.

Sorry for my ignorance, but there are two kinds of big machines with numbers... one is the slot in your card from the bottom kind and the other is the swipe kind, I think only the swipe one accepts mst?

Those are the POS terminals, they accept both swipe and insert. MST is used for both. Insert cos of SG cards, Swipe is for foreigners. Likewise, it should work for us when we go overseas. (There is an option to activate magstripe for overseas use in our ibanks)

Saw a thread going on about which merchants that applepay can be used, which is nice as it means those can be used for Samsungpay too.

Which shops don't have the contactless reader but Samsungpay works after beta testing?

Was at vivocity, tried the MST only and these worked successfully when I paid:

1) mono yono
2) madam kwan's
3) Garret's popcorn

Used Ocbc titanium on Samsungpay.

It's good to see such 'healthy' competition between Apple and Samsung, it never bores me. But what I can say is this, what can be paid using ApplePay can be used for SamsungPay. So their list is Samsung's list too! But what SamsungPay can pay, MST, ApplePay can't. So if we agree to create a list, might as well state the MST shops, there are shop that doesn't even have any and only accept NETs
