It’s about time all the networks did away with their membership cards etc and just went contactless debit/credit card. That said I have GeniePoint as that’s the work system and I just got a Shell card (which I don’t think needs topping up, just takes the charge from your credit card per-use). Not worth signing up for PolarPlus as I won’t use it anywhere near enough to be effective.
There are some single card solutions slowly gaining traction for charging.
The Charge Your Car network is a reasonable one, which also covers ChargePlace Scotland. And vice versa if you happen to have a ChargePlace Scotland card but not CYC.
Octopus are slowly building up their Electric Juice coverage, though still a ways to go it’s promising.
And I think I possibly read somewhere that public charge points in future are going to have to offer a straightforward contactless payment option. Though that’s likely to mean more two tier pricing... pay less if you’re a “member”, more if you’re not.
Old enough to remember when admin/modding wasn’t an apparent one man band.
