Shell has decided to cooperate with the established payment service provider PayPal, allowing customers to pay their fuel directly at fuel service stations with their smartphone at participating Shell fuel service stations.
The combination of Shell SmartPay and the tanker service, which includes the refueling and cleaning of the front windshields that Shell offers at around 500 fuel service stations nationwide, mean that customers will not have to leave their vehicles in the future.
Emre Turanli, the marketing manager of the Shell fuel station business in Germany, Austria and Switzerland said, "We welcome around one million customers every day at our almost 2,000 fuel service stations. In order to make the visit to the fuel service station as pleasant as possible, we want to meet as many different needs as possible. The new offer is aimed above all at those customers who are in a hurry or do not want to leave their car. With PayPal we have a trustworthy and reliable partner with a high level of competence in the area of mobile payment.”
"We want to give our customers new opportunities to pay with PayPal - even off the classic e-commerce. Mobile payment via a smartphone at the Shell dispenser is another example of how mobile payments can make our lives easier and more comfortable," said Sven Kappel, Director of New Commerce at PayPal.
