It turns out that Chase didn't really support TfL via Apple Pay at the time, but hopefully given your anecdote and others, CSR is now working. I'm concerned about the overcharging though... and that there might still be glitches. Do you have more details on how you were overcharged?
FWIW, I had no problems with the CSR when I was there in October 2017. The readers occasionally failed to read the first time but a second attempt always worked.
