Gilbarco Veeder-Root now gives motorists the option of paying for gas at the pump using their PayPal account at its Passport terminals.
The integration also allows consumers to buy in-store items using their PayPal credentials.
“PayPal wants to be where consumers shop every day and by collaborating with Gilbarco, one of the leaders in the convenience store and fuel industry, it has the potential to put us into thousands of locations,” says Don Kingsborough, vice president of retail services at PayPal, in a Feb. 12 press release. “We want to help consumers save time and money, while helping the convenience store industry drive loyalty in the store and at the gas pump.”
Gilbarco will continue to work with PayPal to find other ways to offer digital payments at the point of sale to its customers around the world. The companies are also looking at how to drive loyalty through Applause TV, the gas station advertising system that displays on small TVs at the pump.
“Our customers recognize PayPal as a global leader in digital payment, and we are excited to work with them on this innovative payment solution and to collaborate on a number of other retail initiatives,” says Mike Schulte, president of Gilbarco North America, in the release. "The PayPal mobile solution will be a cornerstone of our suite of retail applications."
Based in Greensboro, N.C., Gilbarco is a subsidiary of Danaher Corp.
