Chevron to Integrate Apple Pay at Gasoline Pumps in Early 2015

Oil company Chevron has plans to expand its use of Apple Pay to gas pumps in the new year, according to a tweet the company sent out to a customer earlier today. In the message, Chevron says that it is working with Apple to bring Apple Pay payment solutions to pumps by early 2015.
Chevron is an early Apple Pay partner, and was listed as one of Apple's supporters when the service first launched on October 20. Apple Pay is accepted at Chevron and Texaco gas stations at the current time, but it can only be used at the in-store cash register, which is considerably less convenient than a pump-side payment option.

Support for Apple Pay at the pump has been in the works at Chevron for several months, with a Chevron spokesperson stating that the company was working with Apple on developing pump-side options in mid-October. As the only gas stations accepting Apple Pay, Chevron and Texaco gas stations may be able to get a leg up on the competition by luring iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users looking for a more convenient way to pay for gas purchases.

Apple Pay is still in its infancy, but early numbers suggest Apple's payments service has the potential to be the first widely adopted mobile payments option. During the month of November, Apple was responsible for 1 percent of digital payment dollars, with 60 percent of Apple Pay customers using the service on multiple days throughout the month. Apple Pay is only in the United States at the time being, but Apple has plans to expand to multiple other countries in 2015.

Update 2:00 PM PT: Chevron has clarified that a potential timeline for the rollout of Apple Pay at the pump remains unclear, with no official early 2015 launch planned. The company also plans to continue to roll out in-store Apple Pay support to 3,000 stores in 2015.

I hope it is, following what is happening with Apple Pay isn't very easy and MacRumors coverage of it has helped me keep up to date on what has changed since the launch.

Please continue to post a new story every single time another company integrates Apple Pay into their systems. These stories are endlessly interesting because people with iPhone 6 phones have no other ways to pay for things!

This will be in store only. Saw the Memo as friend works for Corp.

Go into store and pay, walk out and pump. then go back in if you over paid.

No thanks. Will use Debt/CC at pump.

Fail.

The only fail here is your reading comprehension skills.

Yes... and I hope they keep writing them.

Every day that passes and every article about a new store that uses Apple Pay is just showing how CurrentC is falling further behind.

Is Apple Pay actually good or is it just overhyped like other iOS features? Don't really see people using nfc to pay for goods and services. I'll wait till Samsung and Loop-Pay or whatever feature the stuff in Samsung devices to actually see if I do nfc payments.


Apple Pay and Google Wallet are not just about not having to take out your wallet to pay and the novelty (to people in the US, anyway) of paying with a mobile phone.

These systems prevent your real account numbers from being exposed at any point, so if your transaction data is released to criminals for any reason, it will be useless as the one-time token has already been used.
