You can just tap, but the phone will take a second to authenticate your fingerprint or face. This extra time may annoy people so better to adjust press in advance.

need to launch apple pay before u can pay right? cannot do so by just tapping the phone right?

Yeah for me I open up Apple Pay and authenticate first before scanning, so I don’t have to suffer delay issues

yeah... i also found that watch is quite difficult. i think the watch face needs to touch the reader as the nfc is weak.
maybe use phone is easier.

ya same experience. I use watch I got a missing exit cos the watch showed done but the reader didn't react but phone wise so far so good speed is about the same as the physical card tapping

Issue for me is that my mastercard is not my main card, so I rather use apple watch for transport and phone for purchases and I can set the default card accordingly.

Hopefully when Visa cards are accepted for ABT in June it is also extended to visa cards on apple pay.

Just tried with my iPhone 7+, tap centre will kena error/won't read the phone. Offset the phone a little towards the sides of the pad should be ok. Tried 2-3 times during the entry, only 1 try for the exit.

Assumingly you're tapping on the top of the phone but not the Apple logo side, then ideal you shouldn't go all the way to slap your phone against the reader. Maintain a short distance away will help with the handshake.

Yup, I was tapping using the top of my phone. Will try to leave a bit of gap the next time, probably why my first few attempts failed. :crazy:

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.

The transaction with the Virtual Device logo.
