Motorists will soon be able to pay for purchases from oil and gas company Shell using Chase Pay, the QR code-based mobile payment service unveiled by JPMorgan Chase in October 2015. Shell will accept Chase Pay in all of its stations across the US.
Shell is also a member of retailer-led US consortium MCX, an initial Chase Pay partner. MCX announced this week that it is to discontinue the pilot of its own CurrentC mobile wallet service later this month.
“Chase Pay is a payment service that lets Chase credit and debit customers pay at the pump, in stores, online and within an app,” JPMorgan Chase says. “Chase Pay will help Shell transform its customer payment and loyalty experience by enabling a mobile payment solution and driving Fuel Rewards program participation.”
“We recognise consumers are looking to mobile solutions for everyday needs, including shopping, travel, restaurant reservations and more,” says Craig Schneider, Shell general manager and vice president of retail marketing in North America.
“Adding Chase Pay to the multiple payment methods Shell accepts will deliver a simplified, differentiated and personalised customer experience while driving loyalty.”
Chase Pay is currently live with select online retailers and will be available “later this year” for Chase customers to use to make in-store and in-app purchases from participating merchants.
