Visa launch / press
@johnyma22 hi guys pretty new to the work of nfc and looking to preorder a new payment ring potentially. Just wanting to clarify a few things
1- does the payment method require a top up or does it link directly to the Visa card via the token system?
2- I can't see a Paypal method? Sorry I'm a stickler for Paypal haha.
3- what's the life expectancy of the ring assuming there is just regular use?
And if anyone has any input they think might be useful I'm more than open to it.
- We haven't released how we're doing this yet :)
- See #1 :)
- The limitation is the expiration put in place by an issuer, IE if your issuer specifies 8 years on a card then it will be the same on the ring :)
dang I was hoping it was just a case of refreshing the new card onto the ring. Never the less I'll be keeping an eye on it still I want one haha.
Will it only be linked to the new card that comes with it? Or can it link to my current visa
This post is deleted!
Hey man, sorry but I really can't share that info right now like I said in previous posts :) As soon as I can I will!
Well this is interesting
Update 8/26: Visa tells us that the payment-capable NFC Ring isn't the same product as what athletes tried. It just happens to embody the same general concept. With that said, Visa says it has "future plans" for the tech it showed off -- you'll just have to wait longer to see that.
@johnyma22 I bet your actually dying to tell us what's happening if not for those pesky NDA's !
All good thanks for replying👍🏿
@jasok2 :) Yep and remember what journalists write is often incorrect.
The Engadget article is inaccurate and unfortunately Engadget didn't even attempt to contact ourselves or Visa before publishing...
While I appreciate the coverage the journalist dropped the ball here by not reaching out to me/us..
So yeah, TLDR; don't believe what you read in tech blogs :P *Source: Silicon Valley.
@johnyma22 I'm just wondering if there any updates on payment Rings that you are allowed to tell us all about ATM ??
Hey @jasok2 -- yeah a bunch of people have them and some (very selective) pre-orders have shipped, full details haven't yet been disclosed as they vary depending on the recipient :)
@johnyma22 well as much as I'm bummed that I cant be one of those people, its great to hear that things are progressing well. I'm very much looking forward to receiving my pre-order :)

I can rapport that the visa ring looks badass. No Epoxy, no inlay visible! It's all one big "unibody" design. There's no visible seam either! Crazy! 2017 will truely be amazing.

As a fan and owner of both an original and ceramic ring, I am excited about this. I'm also a fan of android pay, and used it quite a bit until safetynet started tripping even with only a bootloader unlock. I'll keep my custom ROM over android pay.
How does this affect the ring? Does it require stock firmware?

@three-west The ring is completely self-contained and doesn't require anything other than a contactless payment terminal to work its magic.
@johnyma22 any new news since last month ? and any chance of the pre-orders being shipped in the remainder of this year?
@jasok2 Think you will need to wait for official announcements :)
@johnyma22 You can't Blame a guy for asking ;)
