Flash and Pay At The Singapore Food Festival 2012

NETS FlashPay Card will be accepted at over 50 stalls at the Singapore Food Festival Village

Singapore — For the first time in its history, the Singapore Food Festival (SFF) will go cashless with a multipurpose CEPAS card this year, with visitors able to purchase meals and transit rides with just a tap of their NETS FlashPay Card.

NETS is partnering with the SFF to enable payment via NETS FlashPay at all 50 stalls at the Singapore Food Festival Village. A limited edition SFF 2012 NETS FlashPay card will be sold to visitors during the 10-day event which entitles visitors to a 20% discount off all purchases at any of the village stalls.

Ms Cynthia Liaw, General Manager, Consumer Services, NETS, said, “This year, we’re bringing added convenience to Singapore Food Festival visitors as they only need one NETS FlashPay card. Whether it’s to pay for their bus or MRT fare to the Festival or to pay for their meals at the Village – visitors can use the same card to ‘flash and pay’!

“A cashless SFF also means a more hygienic event for both stall vendors and customers since people do not need to handle cash or worry about giving the right change. In fact, visitors don’t even have to take their NETS FlashPay cards out of their wallet – the contactless card allows them to tap and pay at the terminal the way they do at MRT transit gates or bus readers,” Ms Liaw added.
