Forget going to the till to pay for fuel. Offered through the BILnet mobile app, the service Pay @ pump developed jointly with the Luxembourgish startup CarPay-Diem means you can pay for petrol via your smartphone (see our article “Fueling the future with CarPay-Diem: connecting drivers & gas stations“).
“We are looking to enhance our services to simplify our clients’ lives.”
How does it work? When a driver arrives at a partner petrol station, they select the “Pay for my fuel” service in the BILnet mobile app and choose the pump they want to use on their smartphone screen. They will receive instant confirmation that the pump is ready. Then all they have to do is fill up. Once they’ve finished, the payment is made automatically and the receipt for the transaction appears on their smartphone screen. They can leave the petrol station without a second thought. Soon, clients will also have the possibility of receiving special offers in the shops of CarPay-Diem’s partner petrol stations, directly in the app.
“We are looking to enhance our services to simplify our clients’ lives. Our partnership with CarPay-Diem is a prime example of this. Accessible through the BILnet mobile app, this user-friendly and innovative service enables our clients to save time whenever they fill up,” explains Olivier Debehogne, Head of Retail and Private Banking Luxembourg, and Digital (see our article “How the Agile method is transforming BIL’s evolution“).
“In this day and age, banks must diversify their services and innovate if they wish to keep meeting their clients’ needs.”
“In this day and age, banks must diversify their services and innovate if they wish to keep meeting their clients’ needs. BIL has understood this reality and positioned itself as a pioneer in this regard in Luxembourg. Adding CarPay-Diem to the BILnet app opens up a new experience to drivers while also adding value for partner petrol stations. It really is a win-win approach,” notes Frédéric Stiernon, CEO of CarPay-Diem.
The network of partner petrol stations will gradually be extended over the coming weeks.
