Drivers refuelling their vehicles at Exxon and Mobil fuel stations across the USA will soon be able to make seamless contactless payments at the pump with their Apple or Android mobile device simply by tapping an NFC sticker or by using the camera to scan a QR code printed on it.
ExxonMobil is rolling out its ‘point and pay’ technology to more than 11,500 of its stations, allowing customers to tap an NFC tag, authorise payment via Apple Pay, Google Pay or the company’s own ExxonMobil Rewards+ app and select the fuel grade.
The contactless payments system uses Apple’s new App Clips service, enabling iPhone users to pay without needing to enter credit card numbers or manually log into their account.
“For customers who have the Exxon Mobil Rewards+ app, the technology intuitively opens the app to proceed with secure payment,” the fuel company adds.
A video produce by ExxonMobil shows how the system works:
The full rollout of the technology is due to be completed by the end of the year.
