Chevy is making it easier than ever to pay for your fuel at Shell gas stations.
The two companies are rolling out the industry’s first embedded, in-dash fuel payment and savings experience, powered by Marketplace. Marketplace is the auto industry’s first commerce platform for on-demand reservations and purchases of goods and services, and will allow Chevy owners to pay and save for fuel directly from the touchscreen in their vehicle. That means not having to swipe a credit card or use a mobile device, so long as it’s at a participating Shell-branded gas station.
Users simply press the Shell icon within Marketplace and select their preferred station location. After a few more taps on the screen, a code will be generated that the driver can use to activate a desired pump and start fueling. Payment is automatically charged to the payment method on file and Fuel Rewards savings are applied.
The system is currently piloting in select markets and a nationwide rollout is planned for the coming months. Marketplace is available in eligible 2017 model year and newer Chevrolet vehicles in the U.S.
“We introduced Marketplace to deliver value, productivity and convenience to our customers,” said Rick Ruskin, senior manager, Online Commerce, Chevrolet. “Bringing the Shell Pay & Save functionality right on the touchscreen of our vehicles is the latest advancement of this platform, allowing drivers to simply access Fuel Rewards® and pay for gas while inside their car.”
