Payment for items at 7/11 shops during the Covid19 risks

Recommended Posts

I am having similar incidents. Happens mostly at 7-11's and now when I order my coffee at coffee shops where they know me well.

Cashless with no receipt.

But, they mostly have to touch the purchase to scan it so there is some risk.

The employees at the shop near me are wearing gloves.  Although, the gloves protect them, they are filthy dirty.

I don't know what it's like to live in Khon Kaen, but it might help if you wore a mask and gloves, unless you already do and I've misunderstood your post. I live in Bangkok and I get stared at critically if I venture out without a mask, but when I wear one, people relax. (By critically, I mean more critical than usual!) 
The idea of a tray is a good idea - I went to McDs drive thru last night and the girl had a little tupperware box for me to put my card into - didn't even want to touch my card. 
The reason Thai's are like this is there's news that some delivery drives have got Covid19 from touching packaging so that seems to be the way it's being transmitted. 
Another option is just taking your own tray! I mean you're taking your own bag, so why not a tray?

I use the TrueMoney Wallet app on my phone. Non-contact and no fiddling with change.

 

It was Thai-only but is now available to all.

 

 

Excuse my tech ignorance but how does that work exactly  ? Is it linked to your Thai bank account ?

This is some good news/information for me.

 

I have applied before, when they just introduced the TrueMoney Wallet, the registration went well and I deposited 1000b.

Not long after they updated and required the laser number from the ID card, and my wallet was suspended and I couldn't reactivate it.

Contacted the Truemoney at their booth at one of the expos, but to no avail and it was 'for Thais only', and the deposit couldn't be retrieved.

 

If you said so, wella then I will re-apply again just for the sake 🙂 

The deposit will be into the bits, the number registered has expired since.

 

For payment at 7 eleven I use, and always has from the beginning of my stay here in Thailand, the 7eleven card. (Not the All-member one)

When I put the items on the desk with showing the barcode directing to them.

They mostly get the message.

I'm not sure if a foreigner can link directly to a bank account (LinePay won't let you).

Perhaps like the TrueMoney Wallet 'Thai-Only' now 'Foreigner-Friendly' ✅

But have to say, had this from the start the LinePay went Rabbit.

I forgot how it was before they connected with Rabbit.

I used it for a while (4 years) for paying bills, which now are done by AirPay.

Sadly still not available to me:-

 

Bangkok Bank says "cannot add due to an error or a foreigner account", SCB falls at the first hurdle as it needs a Thai ID card number.

 

Not really an issue, I can push money from Bangok Bank just not link my account to automatically pull.

I wear a mask.
I use only cash.
I use a backpack when I go to town for market and shops.
One of the local banks staff were wearing gloves.
