It is easy to put money on cards, hard to get them off
There is still no way to do bank to bank transfers of card balances and they still pay in cheque.
I have a concession that is expiring and there was no way to pay up to the exact day as for the "pass" you have to either do 28 days or 4 weeks minimum. You can have a "pass" amount of days but still have the balance in negative and not be able to use it.
There is a cascading issue with "paywave" transactions at 7/11 you don't need a pin for transactions under $100 which is where the cards would be being recharged.
