- Up to 60 Petrom and OMV filling stations ensure fast lanes and terminals for paying at the pump by card and by phone
- The project is carried out in collaboration with Mastercard
OMV Petrom, the largest integrated energy company in South-East Europe, together with Mastercard, have extended the fast payment system at the pump.
Radu Căprău, member of the Executive Board of OMV Petrom, responsible for Refining and Marketing: „The fast payment solution at the pump is part of an extensive modernization program at Petrom network level. We started to implement a similar project in OMV stations. By digitizing, we provide an enhanced experience for our customers who have a dynamic daily schedule and want to limit their waiting time for refueling.”
Thus, 54 Petrom filling stations in 28 counties across the country benefit from fast lanes and terminals for payment by card and by phone, when refueling. The fast payment system at the pump currently covers 15% of Petrom's network of filling stations.
A pilot fast payment system is also available in the OMV network, in 5 stations located in Bucharest, Cluj and Constanța. OMV customers can pay by card at the pump for both refueling and for coffee and gastronomy products which can then be picked up from the filling station. The company considers extension of this payment system, depending on location, customer flow and traffic.
