Fixing Issues with EA Station Card Payment: Here’s What to Do | EA Charging Stations
The EA charging station has been having issues with not accepting the EA "free charge card" for payment. This has been a problem for many people in the last two months. To solve this issue, one must tap the Member page and then follow the instructions to tap their phone below the payment reader. This will show a fee for the session, but it will be discounted to $0 due to membership.
The most reliable way to activate a charger stall is by using the EA app. However, some have had difficulty using the EA card in their Apple digital wallet. It is important to make sure that the EA app is open before plugging in as this has been the most reliable method for many users.
It is possible to use CarPlay when you get to an EA station to start the charging session. This can be done through the EA app, however, many users have found that the card reader on most EA stations are not good and cannot read their phone. Additionally, many stations will not restore after a previous session ends and will continue to show "in use", making it impossible to "soft-start" a session.
The best way to avoid this issue is to use the EA app. This will allow you to start a session without having to worry about the card reader not working. Additionally, it is important to make sure that your phone is connected to the charger before starting a session. This will ensure that the session starts correctly and that you are able to charge your car.
If you are still having trouble with the EA station not accepting your account card for payment, it is recommended that you contact customer service. They can help troubleshoot any issues you may be having and provide additional support if needed. Additionally, they can provide information on how to use the EA app and other methods of payment.
It is also important to note that some stations may require a minimum amount of charge in order to start a session. If this is the case, it is recommended that you check the station's website or contact customer service for more information.
Finally, if all else fails, it is possible to pay with cash at an EA station. However, this should only be done as a last resort as it can be difficult to get change back from the machine. Additionally, cash payments are not eligible for discounts or promotions.
In conclusion, if you are having trouble with an EA station not accepting your account card for payment, there are several steps you can take to try and resolve the issue. The most reliable way is by using the EA app, however, if this does not work then contacting customer service or paying with cash are viable options.
