Jaguar Now Lets Drivers Pay In-Car For Cashless Gas Station Payments

In a partnership with Shell, the system enables drivers to use PayPal or Apple Pay via their vehicle's touchscreen

Jaguar is giving drivers the opportunity to use their car’s touchscreen to pay for fuel with a new cashless payment app from Shell. Instead of queuing in the shop or using a card at the pump, drivers will be able to use PayPal or Apple Pay to make a payment at Shell service stations. Android Pay is also being added later this year.

After making their payment, an electronic receipt will be displayed on the touchscreen and a receipt will be sent the driver’s email address so it can be added to accounting or expenses software. This simple but secure customer experience uses geolocation technology and a cloud based pre-payment check with the PayPal or Apple Pay wallet. The Shell app is available to download now in the UK and will be rolled out to additional markets globally during 2017.

There could be extensions of this payment system in the future, with cashless tech research from Jaguar Land Rover looking into parking and drive-through restaurants.

Peter Virk, director of connected car and future technology, said in a news release:

“In a world where cash is no longer king, customers are increasingly using electronic payments and contactless cards. Making a payment directly from a car’s touchscreen will make refuelling quicker and easier. With this new system you can choose any pump on the forecourt and pay for the fuel even if you’ve forgotten your wallet or can’t find your credit or debit card. You will save time because there’s no more queuing to pay in a shop, and for drivers with children, it won’t be necessary to wake them up, or unstrap them from their seats to take them into the shop. Expenses and tax returns will also be made much simpler, with no receipts to lose as these will all be sent electronically.”
