French energy giant Total has announced the rollout of a new app for paying at the pumps.
The Total eWallet will first be deployed in Germany and Belgium before a wider release across Europe.
It will allow customers to pay for fuel without entering the store, as well as pay for things like car washes.
Total hopes it can later be used for refueling electric vehicles.
The announcement follows the launch of a similar app from BP at its garages.
Vice president for retail, Antoine Tourand, said: “Simplifying the customer experience is at the heart of our efforts. This service is at the same time innovative, secure, and dynamic, and we aim for it to be available throughout our European network of service stations, both at the pump and in the shop.
“Our goal is to make the purchasing experience simpler, more secure and convenient. The eWallet constitutes a major milestone in our strategic aim to become an indispensable mobility service provider.”
It follows a pilot scheme for the app in Berlin which launched in October.
