Using their mobile phones, customers can now add funds to their myki accounts via Near Field Communication (NFC).
If you want to add funds to your myki Money account right away, you’ll need to have:
You’ll need an NFC chip in your phone.
The minimum required version of Android OS is 8, and the minimum required version of iOS is 13.
A data or WiFi connection from your phone is required.
You must have your myki smartcard in your possession and close to the phone.
The most recent update of the PTV app is required.
Settings on your phone will reveal whether or not it has an NFC chip, as well as the version of software it runs.
The process for making a covert payment using near-field communication
Launch the PTV app, then choose “myki top up,” and finally, tap the “scan myki” button.
Hold your myki smartcard up to the rear of your phone when prompted with Scan myki to begin.
Myki card scan failures result in a request to retry. When trying to locate the NFC chip on the back of your phone, you may need to try moving your myki around (we recommend placing your myki 1-2 centimetres away from the phone and holding for 5-10 seconds). Also, make sure you have a data or WiFi connection and that your phone is compatible.
Your myki card information and a big green check mark will appear on the screen if the scan was successful. Select the ‘Top up’ button next to myki Money to continue with the top-up, and then:
Pick the additional sum to add ($1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, or any whole number of dollars between $1 and $250).
Type in your credit card information (number, expiration date, and CVC/CVV).
Select the $xx Proceed button to continue.
You can review the amount you topped off, your Myki card number, and the card you used to pay on the screen that appears. In order to complete the payment, please tap the “Pay $xx now” button.
Hold your myki smartcard to the back of your phone when prompted to add funds immediately. Select the Cancel top up option if you’ve changed your mind about continuing with the top up at this time.
