There is a slight delay using MasterCard vs ezlink from my end. Hopefully it's just a launch day glitch or bug. Using DBS Safra.

Same here and I just got a text message from them informing me that I can now activate the mode at the GTM machines.

"You may now activate your POSB/DBS Mastercard Card ending XXXX at any General Ticketing Machine (located in train stations). Once activated, you can tap and go on buses/trains with Mastercard contactless! Get 100% cashback on the first 3 rides from 20 Mar - 20 Apr 2017. T&Cs apply. Visit posb.com.sg/transit for details."

Me. Coz my wallet inside got some many different credit/debit cards and 5 of them got Ez-link CEPAS features, if just tap with wallet 100% got error.

Make use of Mobile Payment Solution with Apple Pay/ Samsung Pay or Android Pay, no more trouble! Waiting for the day to come!

i saw some ppl open the wallet then tap left side or right side of wallet.

yes. using credit card needs around 1 sec processing time. just now used a few times, confirmed slower than ezlink/flashpay.
ezlink/flashpay just tap immediately green light.
credit card need to verify card number etc... 1 sec is already very fast.

but next time more ppl are using credit card... dunno the processing time will be longer or not.

This is a trial, so expect so seconds of delay, i am sure LTA will use this trial to fine tune the payment process and hope they add in mobile payment solution in the next trial then time to buy Apple Watch!

Finally able to switch from CEPAS to BANK today.

This new master card to tap for mrt and bus not workable if we use our iphone ? And need use the physical card to tap ?

This question has been answered a million times, there a function called "Search thread".

credit card processing need some time. 1-2 sec is already quite fast.
but after trial, there will be more ppl using credit cards, whether processing time will increase or not is not known.

Negative values too. I guess they consider it as being deducted from your account lol.

I hope Singapore is going towards this direction as well. I know for UOB, I can already use Apple Pay to withdraw money from ATM. Once paywave/paypass becomes even more common, and Android/Apple Pay can be used for public transport, maybe that will be the day where I can leave the wallet at home.

ikr. nowadays i leave my wallet at home when i'm running errands nearby or out for a short while when i know they accept apple pay

From what I remember they only deduct every 8 days or every $15. Remember reading in the FAQ. the 10cents is holding charge or what. Looking forward to be able to use mobile to withdraw from ATM, and pay for rides. Nowadays if can use apple pay confirm use apple pay. so much easier than having to deal with cash. then 1 less card to carry around liao.

I still see a lot of cases whereby people using iphone 7, when at the counter, take out wallet, take out their credit card from the wallet, tap, put back the card into the wallet, put the wallet inside their bag. Their cards are supported by apple pay fyi.
