Just went ntuc and tried. First time I tab at the pay wave terminal it returned an error. Second time was ok.. Now I'm wondering. Where is the position of our NFC?

Ok I tried the visa swipe machine but like not working Haha. Maybe I'm not doing it properly.
you don't know how to aim the antenna properly la.. embarrass a few more times and you will get the trick for doing right..

beta trial users all should know what are the cards can add and what cannot add what..

inside info cannot release online and cannot have any evidence left behind. now i speaking the inside info, can you hear not? if can good for you..

there is a video tutorial on samsung pay.. maybe you closed it by accident..

anyway, the nfc antenna does not cover the entire back surface for note 5. s7 series also got slightly different nfc element layout.

for note 5 and s7, the nfc element strongest area is just right below the optical heart rate sensor. if you guys aim the area at the centre of all readers, including the mrt and bus reader, no reason why it should return an error message.. now guys, truth exposed.

for MST i have not tried yet, and i dunno if it will work.. gonna experiment a bit and i think its gonna be a litter lower than the nfc element bah..

nfc on s7 edge shld be strongest slightly below the samsung word.

i still doubt MST transactions will work in SG as MAS already disabled all swipe transactions in SG. if merchant swipe your EMV card on the MST terminal it will be declined by banks. all transactions have to slot the card into the payment terminal and transaction thru the emv chip.

i have yet to try the MST function but hope those who tried can share.

I understand your point, but somehow i feel like samsung probably have did their homework and said that the app can use the swipe feature. well, who knows? this obt might be the testing step for the MST.

i guess it may work.. but acceptance may still be subjected to financial institution's discretion.

"Samsung Pay uses a proprietary Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology that can interact with traditional card readers. MST uses a magnetic signal that mimics the magnetic stripe on a credit card, to enable payments.

Though banks in Singapore have all migrated from using magnetic stripe to smart chip-based EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) chips on credit cards, Samsung Pay's use of MST does not mean a return of magnetic-stripe credit cards.

"The MST technology is different from the process of reading and using the data encoded on the magnetic stripe to effect payments at point-of-sale terminals," said a spokesman for the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

"As in the case of any new technology, we expect financial institutions to conduct their due diligence and address the attendant risks prior to adoption of the technology.""

try opening your samsung pay app and check....

hope MST works in singapore. if it does, it means we will not be subjected to the $100 transaction limit for nfc payments like applepay users.
