One thing that caught me was they mention on the app login page advert that you must only add the card to one device at a time (apple asks you if you also want to add the card to the watch etc)

To add it to both make a new request

Also a plan I guess.
I mean the best would be to have a reliable card backend. Seems like the others manage that…

I just crazy the card, not about to get another bank account, but if the system is fubar with transaction verification then Apple Pay and physical card will be fubar

Eish! Now we know that guy who was here before worked for FNB IT - he predicted all these issues cos he was seeing them in his testing.

No wonder he was going on about 'problems and issues that you people know nothing about'

and we laughed at him..... oh the shame...

Created a virtual card and added that to Apple Pay via the app. Seems to be working now as stated above

Only pain in the bag side I have with the “Virtual Cards” is that the transactions do not show up in your FNB app instantly. You get the notifications for payments yes… but the transaction takes like 3 days to show up.

Anyone else have this?

Such a pain…

No it must be Apple and Takealot’s fault… :ROFL:
Looks like the “Add to Wallet” options are gone from the FNB app.
Ai they just cant catch a break… failures upon failures and the others has seamless EARLY launches.

Looks like RB has a new copy paste response that is meaningless \ useless.

failing to link physical card, or even create virtual cards. 4 months to implement yet they still found a way to mess it up

Credit Card or Cheque or Fusion?

I’m using Fusion…. Both myself and my wife did separate Apple Pay purchases today, both on Fusion Virtual Card… both transactions are not visible and both are not under “Pending”

Bizarre!! Then like 3 or so maybe 5 days later they appear in the transactions list!!

Yep saw that as well, I tried to add a physical card through the watch app on my phone and the only option to verify the card is either through the FNB app or to call FNB.

When I chose through the app I get an error message that said system currently unavailable. And with call option it calls the FNB digital banking tel number and I'm not sure what the next steps are as they dont mention anything about Apple Pay in the menu.

Of course this happened before Apple Pay as well…. This is why I stopped using the Virtual Cards! My subscriptions would come off but only show up in the transaction list days later!

Must have been turned off server side while they fix whatever issue they have.

Yep noticed that as well when they first launched the VCs, queried it on the chat and the agent told me because it’s a “new” service hopefully it will get resolved sometime.

the issue I have now is, I had two transactions go off at Engen paying with a VC, now I need to wait a few days to see if the one has been automatically reversed before I can log a call

Yup.. tried to set up wife’s cards and all dead.

You can add the card manually but you don’t get the auth and the card is in an unauthorized stat which need to be verified telephonically.

Virtual card on my credit card account. I think my subscriptions also do appear pretty soon after they happen, but haven’t really taken note.
