I got my card about a week ago and while the account is great, I’m having some funny issues with contactless on a lot of readers. I’m wondering if anyone else is having this issue.
Quite often it’ll need 3 attempts to get it to read properly. I noticed on an iZettle reader that the error was “present one card only” followed by “Present card again”. The 3rd attempt worked. I’m definitely only presenting my Starling card.
TFL readers are equally stubborn. Am I supposed to hold this card a precise distance from the readers and recite some mystical incantation to make it work reliably?
I don’t get this issue when I use my Halifax card or Barclays Visa.
