Chevron to Install Apple Pay at the Pump
SAN RAMON, Calif. — Chevron USA Inc. is going "all in" on Apple Pay. According to Apple Insider, Chevron plans to accept Apple Pay at the pump in 2015.
As CSNews Online previously reported in October, Chevron is already accepting Apple Pay for in-store transactions at more than 3,000 Chevron and Texaco ExtraMile locations.
Apple Pay went live on Oct. 20. It allows iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the soon-to-be released Apple Watch users to pay for fuel and other goods and services via their smartphone if they own a Visa credit or debit card issued by Bank of America, Capital One, Citi Bank, Chase or Wells Fargo Bank. In addition, customers can access compatible apps with Apple Pay when using the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3.
"We are thrilled to innovate in the area of retail fuel transactions by making the customer experience for payment and loyalty as smooth, seamless and secure as possible," said Glenn Johnson, general manager, Americas Products Marketing Sales & Services, Chevron, when making the initial Apple Pay announcement in October. "Offering Apple Pay to our customers further solidifies our commitment to delivering high-quality products and services while in a secure and convenient manner."
San Ramon-based Chevron USA Inc. is a division of Chevron Corp., which is involved in virtually every aspect of the energy business.
