don't use the credit card readers and I guess by extension, don't use NFC either. Use the app to start sessions.
As for supporting the handle until the plug's locked to the car, it's been known for a long time and the hint has been circulating around on the net for at least 6 months, if not longer. I've seen it posted so many times on Bolt FB groups and there's https://www.torquenews.com/8861/chevrol ... orrections

One really stupid thing about EA's iOS app is that I get signed out ALL the time w/my session somehow becoming "expired". So, make sure you have your password saved/handy. About the only iOS app I use which I use that is about as bad in terms of signing users out for no reason is TiVo's app.
I've had so-so luck w/EA but yes, it seems EA is very hit or miss from all accounts, even w/supporting the handle before it's locked to the car. My 1st attempt was at https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=581197#p581197
Fortunately, after pinging them, they eventually followed up with me and ended up refunding the entire 1st charge cost: session fee and time fee.
