Stored value cards like CashCard and NETS Flashpay need no introduction for anyone who lives in or travels to Singapore. To the uninitiated, they’re contactless smartcards that can be used for all your transport and commuting needs.

If you’re unsure of where to get them or what to use them for, you’ve come to the right place — here’s your go-to guide on where to buy stored value cards like CashCard in Singapore.

What stored value cards are available in Singapore?

There are a few different types of stored value cards in Singapore like CashCard, NETS Flashpay, EZ-Link card, and the EZ-Link Motoring card. There’s also the NETS Motoring Card, which was just rolled out a few years ago. Let’s take a closer look at each of them.

NETS CashCard is a stored value card that’s used for making payment at car parks and Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantries.

To use them while driving, simply insert the card into your In-vehicle Unit (IU) device, which enables payments to be deducted automatically at gantries. Before buying one of these cards, be sure to check if it’s compatible with your vehicle’s IU device so that your payments go through successfully.

Please take note that the NETS CashCard is set to be phased out and will be replaced by the NETS Motoring Card.

NETS vCashCard is a virtual wallet that provides the same service.

Sign up for vCashCard through the NETS website and complete the online application. After successful registration, you can start using it by linking your vCashCard to the NETS App. This process includes entering your vehicle details into the app too.

Keep in mind each vCashCard can only accommodate up to three vehicles per person. Similarly, each vehicle can only be connected to one vCashCard at a time. Learn more about setting up your vCashCard in your NETS App here.

Another card that uses CEPAS technology, the EZ-Link card, is one of the most popular stored value cards in Singapore. It allows you to pay for parking, ERP, all modes of public transport, private buses, and even taxis.

You can also use it at restaurants, retail establishments, entertainment outlets, libraries, community clubs, and even self-service vending machines and photo booths.

From 1 June 2024 onwards, non-SimplyGo EZ-Link adult cards are no longer accepted for transit and retail fees. However, it remains usable for ERP and parking charges so long as the EZ-Link card has not been upgraded to SimplyGo.
