    Lame.

    Is Octopus a wholly-owned subsidiary of MTR? Can't see why they would give up the transaction fees to Alibaba if so.

    I don't honestly care who it is, I just want one less card to carry so if it is wechat hk or alipay hk or apple pay or octopus just have something that works on the smartphone.

    anyways again - would love if anyone knew when octopus is going to be available on the iphone / android (in general) just using phone itself

    They should just go the way of London and slowly phase out the Octopus in favour of Visa/Master/AE but I imagine they make too much profit to do this.

    In the era of globalisation it doesn't make sense to have a proprietary stored payment card for each city.

    **continues laughing in Samsung**

    Since having Octopus on my Samsung phone the sun seems brighter, colours more vibrant and tram drivers wish me well

    Not bad. They've finally done it; after I approached Octopus about developing an iPhone app for them back in 2011 (when NFC was being rolled out to iPhone) and got rejected.
