SPRING, Texas — ExxonMobil has broadened its mobile payment options to include Samsung Pay.
According to the company, customers with compatible Samsung Galaxy devices can now buy fuel and car washes using Samsung Pay through ExxonMobil's Speedpass+ mobile payment app, according to the company.
To make a purchase with this option, consumers link their Samsung Pay account to their Speedpass+ app and select Samsung Pay as the desired payment method. From there, they can purchase fuel across more than 9,600 Exxon and Mobil retail stations that are Speedpass+ enabled.
"Increasing the mobile payment options allows us to provide our consumers with a faster, more convenient experience at the pump," said Rob Wollard, Americas retail fuels marketing manager for ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Co. "We are proud to be the first major fuel retailer to offer Samsung Pay at the pump."
At the point-of-sale, customers select the pump number on the mobile app, authorize the transaction with a fingerprint or personal identification number, and choose a grade of fuel at the pump.
According to ExxonMobil, Samsung Pay transactions are secure because they are authorized via a unique, one-time-use token, not a card number, which means your card number is neither shared with merchants nor stored on a Samsung device.
Consumers can also "double dip" on their rewards programs, earning points with Samsung Rewards and Plenti loyalty points with the same transaction.
ExxonMobil integrated Apple's Apple Pay into Speedpass+ last year, as CSNews Online previously reported.
Spring-based ExxonMobil is the largest publicly traded international oil and gas company. It is the largest refiner and marketer of petroleum products, and its chemical company is one of the largest in the world.
