FNB testing tap-to-pay at toll booths

First National Bank is piloting a contactless payment system at toll gates that will let any Mastercard or Visa cardholder pay toll fees without having to hand over their card.

It has also revamped its token framework for virtual and physical cards to improve security and give cardholders more control over how their sensitive credentials are stored and secured.

“The contactless devices deployed at the toll gates are issued by FNB but allow for payments from any Visa and MasterCard enabled card,” he said.
Half the time these machines work like ass mind you:sick:

Tap and go slow AF when it does work for 1% of people like myself, the rest fumble and struggle for 3 mins to pay making traffic 1/10.

He explained that limited network coverage was primarily to blame for contactless payment systems not being introduced at toll booths around the country in the past, but coverage has since improved.
There is limited network coverage in shopping centres as well which is a problem when trying to scan QR codes using payment apps, however scanning a QR code is truly contactless whereas tap to pay often is not contactless.

Tap should be 100% contactless unless you have to enter your pin the first time.

No some of those card machines you have to almost wrap the card around the machine for it to register.
lol, the worst for me is Nedbank machines asking to Represent Card, which the attendants think means the machine has to make out with the card or something, but it doesn't matter, you don't have to tap again. I think it means show the card to the attendant (represent the card so the attendant can verify the owner or something) they should fix that.

It means tap again, I know, because Steers N1 Ultra City has Nedbank machine and it does that when I use FNB card.

It just says Represent Card until it is taped. and then it moves on.. so how long does it take before it goes to the next step by itself?
I really think its a placebo. Takes the same amount of time, maybe 5 seconds longer.

All I know if you don't represent it still goes through so really pointless really annoying.

I promise, you don't have to tap again. It goes through regardless.

Yes you don’t have tap again, it will timeout and approve the payment eventually but then you have to wait an extra 30 seconds thus wasting time, however if you tap again it will be approved immediately, another thing you can do if it asks to represent the card is to press the abort(red) button and it will approve instantly.

It is not 5 seconds like he says, it will take about 30 seconds or more. So either tap again or press the red button to approve instantly if you don’t want to wait any longer.
