An incomplete transaction may occur when a T-Card is removed too quickly from the TranSoniCa reader, or when a T-Card is presented at the reader at the same time with another T-Card or contactless smart card. When an incomplete transaction happens, the “dood” sound is not heard and the remaining value is not shown on the screen. If the attendant thinks that the payment has not successfully gone through, you may be asked to pay by other means, even if your T-Card deducts the sum from its remaining value. When this happens, tap the TranSoniCa on the reader again to hear the “dood” signal for a complete transaction and see the remaining value. This will NOT cause a double deduction. If there is no response to the second tap, make sure no other TranSoniCa or contactless smart cards are placed too close to the card while tapping. For an incomplete (and therefore unsuccessful) transaction, the attendant may ask you to pay by other means, even if your TranSoniCa deducts the sum from its remaining value. For more
