Did you know that you could top up the value in your NETS CashCard just by tapping it to your phone? Well, one TikTok user, @jksg98, wasn’t aware of this fact until very recently, and proceeded to post a video about it documenting the entire process:
This method lets you top up your CashCard balance anytime, anywhere, without going to the trouble of having to queue at ATMs or top-up machines. If you were today years old when you found out that you could top up your NETS CashCard from your phone, you’re not alone. While most people already know about topping up your EZ-Link Card using your phone, it appears that not many know about phone top ups for NETS CashCard.
Turns out, this top up method has been around for at least a couple of years, and all you have to do to enjoy the convenient service is download the NETS App. If you’re a suaku (like us), not to worry—we’re here to give you the step-by-step on how to use the app.
To top up your NETS CashCard from your phone:
- Download the NETS App here and create your NETS Account.
- Select the “Top-up” option.
- Tap your NETS CashCard against the front/back of your phone.
- Choose your top-up amount.
- Enter your credit card details to make payment.
- Tap your NETS CashCard once again and the top-up process is complete!
Note that this service is only available for NFC-enabled Android and iOS devices and there is a $0.50 convenience fee for each transaction (waived for DBS/POSB/UOB cards).
The NETS App is a one-stop access for all your NETS cards: NETS Motoring Card, NETS FlashPay Card, NETS Prepaid Card and vCashCard (coming soon). You can also opt for the Auto Top-Up function on the app, so you’ll never have to worry about having insufficient balance ever again. For more information about the NETS App, see here.
