Spanish gasoline retailer Repsol this week augmented its Near Field Communication-based mobile payments services by launching an app enabling motorists to pay for fuel without leaving the car.
Consumers who download the PagoClick Repsol mobile app and link a payment card for in-app payments also may earn points in Repsol Más, the Madrid-based petroleum company’s loyalty program, according to a company press release.
PagoClick Repsol uses geolocation technology to identify the driver’s location and provides a choice of available fuel pumps. Payment is authorized after the user selects the type and quantity of gasoline needed.
Repsol launched the in-app payment capability at 300 of its full-service stations this month, following a successful pilot, the company said.
Repsol in the last few years enabled NFC contactless payments at all of its gasoline stations and convenience stores.
