Yay applepay promo hsbc
No leh i dont have. Been using it very long.
UOB has just given more insight on how it is used. However there isn't any indicate on whether Apple Pay will work or not. Trying to check with them on their fb post.
i saw in some FAQ page, confirmed the trial only accepts mastercard physical cards, mobile payment not supported in trial.
and the mastercard must be registered for trial with banks or transitlink... most probably the card readers will filter out non-registered card numbers.
for apple pay, we don't know the full virtual number, hence we can't register for the trial... lol
yeah... if must use physical card, then ezlink, flashpay and mastercard not much diff. looking at the pilot registration page, seems like they need to know ur mastercard number and CAN number in order to block your ezlink/flashpay function and charge to your credit card.
Yes, that you right. UOB has confirmed that only cards can be used.
yeah, in that case there really isn't a different in using mastercard or ezlink. the biggest different is that there is no need to top up and you will receive your bill at the end of the month.
sometime when i want to take bus then realise insufficient cash inside the card. that feeling is sian.
tapping mastercard physical card during the trial is just for the bank's rebates.
after that gotta wait again... for launch of mobile payment on transit.
so once i done the activation of ABT. means can start to use my mastercard to pay for transport liao?
In the legend indicated at the ABT web portal, there's an icon for smartphones and smart watches, called "virtual device".
It's definitely coming, just a matter of when.
I just hope I can use express transit, but I highly doubt that'll be possible.
all the FAQs already stated that mobile payment not supported during pilot.
which means the earliest is after May 2017.
can only start waiting from June... lol.
Activation only creates the account with your card info and transaction record. If your card has ezlink or flashpay functionality, you have to switch that to bank card mode at the GTMs.
I managed to switch mine this morning, but I'll wait until 20th to actually use the card.
