Will contactless payment take off in Singapore? Its all in the hands of the consumer…

The dissatisfaction with NETS over its actions almost two years ago still lingers in the minds of some, though perhaps not many.

NETSs new contactless card, currently on trial, is only expected to be available to the general public later this year. Will it take off? Will consumers continue to remember the less-than-pleasant moments in NETSs history? Only time will tell.
