Now that New South Wales has adopted the digital drivers licence, and Transport NSW accepts credit card (without OPAL card) for trains and buses I can leave my wallet at home and use my mobile phone for all purchases that I am likely to make on a normal day.
On the rare occasion that I need to withdraw cash I see a couple of options:
- Cardless cash withdrawal using my banks App and ATM
- Eftpos withdrawal at a merchant using contactless eftpos.
The first one is easy if there is an ATM nearby.
The second one is theoretically possible https://mobilepayments.anz.com/apple-pay/questions/#applepay...
However I have been unable to find any merchant who will accept a contactless Eftpos withdrawal.
Has anyone tried this with success?
