Jaguar drivers can now use their car’s in-car payment system and touchscreen to pay for fuel with a new cashless payment app at Shell service stations in the UK.
Rather than using a card at the pump, or queuing in the forecourt shop, owners who install the Shell in-car payment system app can simply drive up to any pump at a participating Shell service station in the UK and use the vehicle’s touchscreen to select how much fuel they require and pay using PayPal or Apple Pay. Android Pay will be added later in 2017.
An electronic receipt will be displayed on the touchscreen, so customers can leave the forecourt confident of having paid. A receipt will also be sent directly from the pump to the driver’s email address so it can be added to accounting or expenses software.
Unlike current phone-based payment methods, Shell and Jaguar Land Rover have created a simple but secure customer experience that uses geolocation technology and a cloud based pre-payment check with the PayPal or Apple Pay wallet.
The Shell app with in-car payment system will be available to download from 15 February in the UK and will be rolled out in additional markets across the globe during 2017.
