does someone also have heavy problems within using the card in German stores and hotels? With the old curve card with the embossed look, it worked everywhere like a charm (chip & contactless) but on the new card, I can only pay contactless. On every (!) merchant store or ATM or somewhere else my card is either reported as invalid or blocked if they try to use the chip or the magnetic stripe.
I tried it in various stores and locations like:
- Restaurants in Hamburg & Berlin
- Hotels in Berlin
- Stores in Cologne (REWE, Edeka, Apple Store)
The app itself doesn’t inform me as it would do on insufficient money or sth else. Can someone confirm this or did I just got a “Monday” product?
