EZ-Link Pte Ltd, Singapore’s largest issuer of CEPAS-compliant cards, today announced the launch of EZ-Pay, the first completely free post-paid card-less payment service for Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) in Singapore. EZ-Pay, which is offered exclusively to Citibank card holders during the launch, ensures that motorists no longer have to worry about passing ERP gantries without a stored-value card in their in-vehicle (IU) unit or with a card that is low in value.
EZ-Pay is an account-based service that guarantees there are always sufficient funds for ERP charges by enabling payments to be charged directly to a Citibank credit card registered by the user, on the condition that there is sufficient credit limit, thereby eliminating the need of having to top up or insert a stored-value card into the IU. Besides not having to incur any registration or subscription fee, users also do not have to pay any top-up or service fee for using EZ-Pay.
To obtain an EZ-Pay account, motorists can visit www.ezlink.com.sg for a simple one-time registration with their vehicle number and Citibank card details. Upon successful registration, they will receive an email to notify them of the effective start date of their EZ-Pay account. From then on, if their stored-value card is not inserted into the IU or carries insufficient value when they pass an active ERP gantry, the ERP charge will be billed to their EZ-Pay account.
To view records of their ERP transactions, users can simply login to their EZ-Pay account using their NRIC number and PIN or refer to their monthly credit card statements.
The first 5,000 Citibank card holders who have signed up for EZ-Pay, activated the service and completed transactions within the promotional period will get up to a maximum of S$20 in cash credit which will be reimbursed back to their credit card. The promotional period starts from 16 August and ends on 30 September.
The service will also be made available to cardholders of other banks in 2017. For more information, please visit: www.ezlink.com.sg
