ExxonMobil is now the first major fuel retailer to accept mobile payment at the pump, including Apple Pay, throughout the majority of its U.S. network. The Speedpass+ mobile payment app is now available at more than 6,000 Exxon- and Mobil-branded retail stations across the U.S.
The app enables customers to authorize a pump for payment securely through the use of cloud-based technology. Customers have the option to select Apple’s mobile payment system as a default form of payment from within the app.
The Speedpass+ mobile payment app is available as a free download at the Apple App Store. It may also be linked to checking accounts or other major credit and debit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and ExxonMobil cards—giving customers choice in how to pay. Customers who select Apple Pay, which is secure and easy to set up, will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by their credit and debit cards.
In addition, customers can obtain receipts by email, at the pump, or both. With either option, the customer’s purchase history is recorded in the app for easy reference, which is particularly helpful for tracking business expenses. ExxonMobil plans to expand the app’s availability to more than 8,000 branded locations by mid-year, according to Matt Bergeron, vice president of fuels and lubricants marketing.
