Rikkitic:

 

I will use a card on rare occasions when I miscalculate and don't have enough cash on me, but I would never even contemplate pay bloody wave. I have been fighting with my bank for nearly a year to get it disabled.

 

 

Do they have an eftpos option with no paywave? I know BNZ do. I have paywave on all my cards, except one, it's basically a dumb eftpos card without my name on it. The type of card you get instantly from the branch when you (think) you've lost your wallet. I leave it hidden in the car in case I lose my wallet again.

 

I've no issue with paywave. My last two corporate cards haven't had it, but they're both from the US.

 

Edit, I'm sure Westpac did it too.

Westpac also offers plain eftpos cards; I got one when my Mastercard chip failed. While I personally prefer Paywave, I tend to use the eftpos card when the retailer doesn't support Paywave: It processes much faster than using the chip.

I'd rather just have an implanted chip in my wrist to be honest.

I think PayWave is limited to $80 so I don’t think you will have too many opportunities to get rich before you’re caught.

Countdown self checkout fails if you scan your onecard barcode.
They look at you like you are stupid, when really it's their system and UI.  The message is present your card, but if you scan it rather than swipe it, the system doesn't recognise the barcode.

I remember I was at New World once and I went to pull my card out of my wallet. My Subway card fell out and landed on the scanner. Chaos ensued.

Even better, the staff discount code for Woolworths employee is a scan card but the One Card is a swipe-only job. If you're buying something using a staff discount card then you have to use two completely different motions.

So, my ISP is apparently suffering a major outage. I suspect "major" because their phone line is down too!


Lock him up!

There was a big outage after some road workers cut cable.
