PayPal and Shell UK team up for mobile payments at the gas pump

PayPal and Shell UK team up to support mobile payments at the pump

Shell customers in the UK will be able to pay for gas at the pump using the Shell Motorist App or the PayPal App, providing drivers another method to pay. The service will be available at more than 1,000 Shell stations throughout the UK - starting with the Shell Drivers Club in April.




The PayPal App is available for Google Android, Apple iOS and Microsoft Windows Phone.


"At PayPal, we've always believed people will use their mobile phones to pay if there's a clear benefit," said Rob Harper, mobile commerce director at PayPal UK. "With today's announcement, we're offering drivers a faster way to fill up their car and pay, and get back on the road."


Mobile payments are expected to gain traction in the US and UK, and these types of partnerships can help build faith among consumers.
