It appears I was the first person to successfully use the Myki vending machine at Bentleigh station, back on the first of last year. Hardly surprising as few people in Melbourne had a card at that point.
And this afternoon I got Sales Transaction ID number 3370, when I dumped a bunch of change onto my card.
Note the chopped-off Myki logo on today’s receipt — it’s not an error scanning it, but some kind of printing/alignment error. Incidentally today’s receipt is on a thicker form of thermal paper than that used originally. Fascinating, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Back then, as now, if you perform an EFTPOS/credit card transaction, if you say you don’t want a receipt, it’ll issue one. If you say you do want a receipt, it’ll issue two. Masterful.
