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
i think lets not head towards the MST defined shops at the moment in order to curb inconveniences.

these shops don't have contactless reader has a reason for it, so if you push MST, it might be inconvenient for the merchant to untangle the wires, lift up the terminal and point towards you for the MST transaction...

as long as samsung pay is still in beta testing stage, lets use it for the sake of exploration instead of using it as a full fledged service which apparently samsung pay has not been officially launched here yet..

Indeed, no fault in what you said. Samsung did put in their announcement about "Notice on Store Testing" not to inconvenient them. So we, as testers, users should comply and respect both parties: Samsung and merchants.

With the rising publicity on UOB Almighty, ApplePay and SamsungPay (Android Pay on their way), and the long forgotten, under-used Dash (Stand Chart if I recall), sooner or later many shops would want to use contactless readers or NFC terminals and join in. Of course it still up to merchant if they want to participate in it, since these terminals are rented.

I just made a purchase in SPC. My 1st attempt prompted a "Please select another ... ". I didn't read fast enough and only saw those 3 words. Oddly, I only have 1 card added. Anyone else seen this before?

I used my DBS Visa Debit on a DBS contactless reader at Balestier SPC.

beta testing means putting a small group of users to expose the product to real world usage.

No sure about launch but I think the first 50 trial users can get $50 capital vouchers if you use 5x Samsung Pay this week.

i think u got confused. smart wallet is no where near samsung pay or even mst.

smart wallet needs nfc sim card and the cards in there are prepaid cards if i'm not wrong.
