Chevron to Bring Apple Pay to the Gas Pumps in Early 2015


According to a tweet, Chevron is planning to bring Apple Pay to gas pumps in early 2015. The tweet, which was posted in reply to a customer comment, says that the oil company is working with Apple to develop a solution to integrate Apple Pay at their gas stations.

The oil company already supports Apple Pay inside many of its stores, which is less convenient than a pump-side option. Chevron was one of the first companies to announce a partnership with Apple to integrate the iPhone-based mobile payment solution.

“Support for Apple Pay at the pump has been in the works at Chevron for several months, with a Chevron spokesperson stating that the company was working with Apple on developing pump-side options in mid-October. As the only gas stations accepting Apple Pay, Chevron and Texaco gas stations may be able to get a leg up on the competition by luring iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users looking for a more convenient way to pay for gas purchases. “

Apple’s contactless mobile payment solution has seen impressive early adoption numbers since its launch in October, given that it is only available on Apple’s latest devices, it is supported by a limited number of merchants, and it is only available in the United States.

This morning it was reported that Apple has started negotiations with Britain’s top banks to bring Apple Pay to the UK.
