Oil and gas company Chevron has teamed up with Visa to offer mobile payments at the pump at 20 locations in San Francisco and Silicon Valley from “later this fall”. The service will be compatible with any NFC mobile payment service including Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay, Visa says.
“With security at the core of the mobile purchasing experience, Chevron customers can feel confident that each transaction is authorized through the Visa Token Service, which uses a unique digital identifier to process consumer payments without exposing actual account details,” the payment network explains.
“We are continually looking for ways to improve the customer experience at our stations and further expand our offering of mobile payment solutions at the pump,” says Chevron’s Glenn Johnson. “This new program with Visa further solidifies our commitment to delivering high-quality products and services in a more secure and convenient environment.”

“Mobile payments are moving into the mainstream in the US because, more and more, consumers see the value of using their personal devices to purchase everyday items like groceries and gas,” adds Jim McCarthy, executive vice president of innovation and strategic partnerships at Visa.
“Chevron has always focused on giving their customers great experiences by offering convenient ways to pay and being committed to protecting against fraud.”
