What is the difference between NETS FlashPay and VISA payWave?
NETS FlashPay and Visa payWave are two different contactless payment features on the FRANK Credit Card. NETS FlashPay is a stored value facility, whereby NETS Pte Ltd is the holder and operator. Each time there is insufficient value in your NETS FlashPay purse, the Auto Top-Up (ATU) feature is triggered and S$50 will be charged to your FRANK Credit Card. The S$50 can then be used for transactions at any NETS FlashPay terminal or reader.

Deactivate the ATU service at any iNETS kiosk first. After 14 working days, the deposit will be returned to you and you can then perform an instant refund of the remaining stored value in the card at the TransitLink Ticket Office or OCBC ATMs.
What if an error message shows when I try to use the NETS FlashPay feature?
If you see an error message when using your card, this could be due to the following reasons:
- There are multiple cards detected at the same time when tapping your wallet
- There is less than an interval of 3 calendar days between the current ATU and the next ATU. Assuming your card received an ATU of S$30 on Monday, the next time an ATU can be performed on your card is on Friday of the same week.

The ATU will be triggered when you tap your card for MRT, public buses, ERP and EPS Cepas2 car parks and will be charged to your Frank Credit Card. The first two ATU transactions will be able to enjoy 6% rebates (up to $6).
