[VIC] Free Virtual Myki on Android Phones with Min. $10 Top up (Usually $6)
PTV is rolling out Mobile Myki this Thursday the 28th of March. Minimum top up amount is $10, but it eliminates the cost of provisioning a card (usually $6 with a physical card), so you only pay for the credit.
Even if you don't plan to use Mobile Myki as a daily driver, this is a great deal if you have forgotten your Myki at home and need to purchase a temporary one.
Eligibility criteria for Mobile Myki from the PTV Website:
- Your phone needs to have a near-field communication (NFC) chip. Go to Settings > Connected devices. If NFC is listed, you can turn this on.
- Ensure you’re using Android operating system 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher. Go into Settings > System > About phone. You can then see what Android version you’re on.
- Download Google PayTM and set up a payment card. You’ll need to be aged 16 or over to use Google PayTM.
