You managed to register your virtual card at City Hall transitlink office successfully before having your physical EZLink MasterCard converted to deduct via ABT at any GTM?

Yes, i just activate APPLE Pay and select POSB Everyday card and scan it on the reader and it was done just like that with the staff telling me that i can only use it after 7 working days.

I am not sure if it will work without activating the physical card at the GTM. I can only do the activation on 10 Apr which i will do it.

Don't need to wait the "3-days", I managed to get my CEPAS card (my physical mastercard registered in my ABT acct) converted to deduct via "bank card usage" at a GTM after 1 full day upon registration.

for your transaction with missing entry and exit, how much were u charged? 2 dollars each?

$1 for entry with missing exit. And another $1 for exit with missing entry. Not sure if it will vary based on distance travelled.

My encounter was when boarding bus, both machine cant detect my bank card, but only detect it as CEPAS/ez link card. It keep show insufficient amount.

Explain to the bus uncle, but he stupid stupid dun understand wat **** im talking.
In the end, have to alight, damn PS sia.
Kena 3 times liao, all same bus uncle.
Therefore, when i saw the same bus uncle, i will rather wait for next bus.

Another encounter was I can tap when boarding. But when alight, machines cant detect as bank card as well. In the end, jus alight without tapping.
I nv go to the front to tap cuz too many ppl in the bus liao.

Sibei sian.

PS, im using the cc directly, not mentioning abt using apple pay. haha

In previous posts, we seasoned MasterCard trial users have advised users to use GTM to switch the transaction mode to banks card mode. By default, all such cards with ezlink!flashpay features are all defaulted to cepas mode.

Even if you registered on abt portal, manual switch is still needed.

You can refer to post 1 for more info..

Not just that, even if you can exit, you'll get missing exit or missing entry occasionally. It is not perfect now and users are always encouraged to use abt portal to monitor statement.

posb everyday cc. i suspect is how they configure the tap machine.

phone n aw only have to reconfigure when u reset the phone, remove the card and re-add, etc.

ya, but i notice that some ppl tap the card after the previous person tap. so actually the machine did not detect tio their card.

so i guess have to wait for awhile after the previous guy have tapped. and also make sure when u tap, the screen detect ur card b4 exit.

Does your Samsung Pay virtual card number appears in your ABT "My Card" section?

Not yet..

Based on faq, Samsung pay can set payment card as default, to kick out the nfc ezlink from interfering, but so far cannot add yet, no such option also.

So to avoid all the hassle, I used my gear sport instead.

Apple users can also use their Apple watches to try first to avoid the hassle of authentication..

Registered on Friday and I’ve just tried it on my iPhone on a bus today. Works like a charm! Though I haven’t tried like a hybrid (MRT + bus) ride.

There wouldn’t be any transactions recorded in the Apple Pay wallet but just the usually tick that a transaction is successful.
