My ezlink card expired. I am looking at netsflashpay vs ezlink. I intend to use auto top up function. I see netsflashpay card have a $0.25 fee for auto top up, so I think I will renew ezlink card because ezlink auto top up no fee. Am I correct?

Looks like ezlink auto top up no fee is better, why people choose netsflashpay?

Asking just in case I misunderstand anything. Thanks.

My personal experience is, more places accept NFP as compared to EZ-link outside of the public transport domain.

As long as the shops/stores has NETS, NFP is always a probable payment option, although some of them put a "minimum value" transaction for its use.

Also, NFP can use for carpark, ERP, etc...

Need to top up NFP then can use correct? How much min top up? I read max top up is $500

Seems a hassle like merchant limit "minimum value" transaction then can use, what is the minimum value you usually see?

NFP looks like more hassle than paying using atm card using NETS. NFP need to top up, transaction value too low cannot use, cannot pay over $500, NFP card got expiry date.

I guess if a place that accept NFP sure accept NETS, but a place that accept NETS might not accept NFP?

I heard some ERP unit or carpark gantry do not accept NFP, only accept cashcard.

Minimum top up at MRT GTM is $10, max value a NFP card can hold is $500 at any one time.

There are varied reasons why people top-up their NFP. For me, I keep it as a spare card for MRT, and occasional small purchases where I may find it a hassle to take out my wallet/purse.

Can anyone share if EZLink or NFP is more commonly accepted for car park gantry?

Thinking of switching from NFP to EZLink for the auto top up feature.

One great advantage to use NFP card compared to EZ-Link card (at least for me) is that we can use NFP card for (certain) bill payments at the SAM machines ....

I have a failed ezlink retail transaction. Money was deducted but not reflected in the card transaction history. I am still not able to get the refund after 4 months. Anyone have the same encounter?

Yes, credit cards which used to have NETS FP function have progressively removed this function when they send you new renewal cards...
