Consumers are increasingly looking for fast and contactless ways to pay during their daily routines. Stopping for gas checks this box, and now Stuzo has partnered with Chevron and Texaco with an integrated mobile commerce solution. Since most gas in the U.S. is sold at a C-store location, mobile apps work best with loyalty programs and personalized marketing offers.
While fuel is a commodity item, C-stores have increased in size with an expanded selection of food and beverage items to attract more customers, no matter what time of day. But it often starts with a fuel purchase and mobile app solutions can get consumers to do more than just top off their tanks.
The following excerpt from an AP Newswire article reports more on the topic:
Stuzo, a provider of contactless mobile commerce and intelligent 1:1 loyalty technology for fuel and convenience retailers, announced today its achievements with Chevron and Texaco mobile commerce applications.
Stuzo is actively supporting Chevron U.S.A. Inc. in its delivery of the following:
- A mobile commerce platform including iOS and Android mobile commerce applications for the Chevron and Texaco brands, and
- Mobile payment capabilities, including digital-first payment methods, the Chevron and Texaco private-label credit cards and recently, the addition of open-loop cards.
“As one of the largest fuel retail brands in the world, we strive to provide streamlined fueling experiences for our consumers,” said Maria Melo, Digital Innovation Manager, Chevron U.S.A. Inc. “We’re making mobile payments more available, adding more ways for our consumers to personalize their experience, and making our innovative mobile apps with fueling payment options more accessible to a broader audience. We are happy to be working with Stuzo on these mission-critical initiatives.”
“We remain committed to helping Chevron accelerate their business by empowering their mobile consumers with options to reduce physical contact when paying for fuel at the pump and to personalize and streamline the fueling experience,” said Gunter Pfau, Founder & CEO, Stuzo.
