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.
a lot of people not using technology
got money to buy expensive phone but not utilizing it


anyways i am done waiting for Citibank. I closed all my Citibank cards and moved on.

i think some people too scare to use it because they aren't such how it works.
some don't even know it existed.

Exactly, and I think it's safer to use Apple Pay and faster to clear a queue.

Does clearing a queue faster makes better productivity? :s22:

I would have prepared my card when I'm queuing.

It's possible to use Apple Pay for ATM withdraw just like Samsung Pay. US atm start to have NFC terminal to allow NFC Smartphones to commicsfie for withdraw, no longer need physical ATM card.

Hope Singapore can catch up with technology! Apple Pay got so much potiental with transport payment, ATM withdraw to simple payment at shops. We are so slow!

Wells Fargo Will Debut ATM Apple Pay Transactions 'Later This Year'

UOB has already began to implement the use of contactless technology for ATM withdrawal. I have been using it for some time already. So if you are currently using UOB, you may try it out.

Take note, it's Mastercard only (for now I guess)

If I have a uob cc mastercard. Then I use it to withdraw money.

The amount of what I withdraw, will deduct from cc amount usage or deduct from bank account?

My card n bank acc is linked tgt.

FAQ from the uob website:

Q9. Is Contactless Cash Withdrawal considered a cash advance transaction?
No. A cash withdrawal using an added credit card on ApplePay™ is not considered a cash advance transaction. That is the reason why you will need to link your UOB MasterCard Credit Card to a current or saving account.


I believe it's deducted directly from your savings or current account like how it is when you withdraw the cash through an ATM Card. Take note that you will still need to key in your ATM card pin.
