How can I add my travel cards to Pick Hub Wallet?
To add travel cards to Pick Hub Wallet, you first have to turn on your NFC on Settings. After it’s on, you need to scan your physical travel card by holding it steady to the back of your phone, near the camera, without moving it. This process takes a few seconds, so follow the instructions that appear on your screen and keep it still until it's finished. When the scan is complete and successful, please confirm that the details on the scanned card are correct. After that, the card will be added to your Wallet.
I have followed all the instructions but I still can't add or read my card, what can I do?
Firstly, please check that you have the latest version of Pick Hub installed. If not, please update the app and try to add the card again.
If you have a cover on your phone, remove it for a better scan.
Confirm you have your phone's NFC enabled and follow the read instructions, not moving the card throughout the process.
If you're still not able to scan it, follow these two directions:
- Turn your phone off and back on and try adding the card again;
- Disconnect from Wi-Fi networks and try to add the card only with mobile data connected.
I do not have any travel card, but I wish to obtain one. How can I do it?
To obtain a travel card, you must contact the Customer Support office of the Operator with whom you wish to acquire it and follow their procedure.
The details of the card I’ve scanned don’t match with the details of my physical card. What should I do?
If the details don’t match, make sure you are scanning the correct card and repeat the scanning process. If the issue isn’t resolved, please contact the Operator’s Customer Support office.
My smartphone is not detecting my card in order to scan it. What can I do?
First of all, you need to check if your NFC is turned on - if it is switched off, please turn it on. If this doesn’t resolve the issue, please retry scanning your card, moving it into several different positions on the back of your phone to see if it is detected. If none of this works, you need to verify if there is any issue with your physical card, so please contact the Operator’s Customer Support office.
What is NFC and how can I turn it on/off?
NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology that allows communication between two devices by bringing them close to each other. New smartphone’s models already have this technology included and it is used, for example, to let you pay with it. To turn your NFC on and off, please go to Settings on your smartphone.
My phone doesn't have NFC. How can I recharge my travel card?
Unfortunately, it's only possible to add Lisboa Viva or Navegante card via NFC.
What we suggest is, if you have access to a friend or family's phone with NFC, that you install Pick Hub on it, enter with your account and recharge the travel card on that device.
