Not sure if BluePay’s gas station credit card processing solutions are right for you? We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions and answers to ensure you make the right choice for your business.
What is pay at the pump processing?
Pay at the pump processing is a convenient gas station service that most customers have come to expect when fueling up. Drivers swipe their credit card or debit card right at the gas pump, fill up their gas tanks, and collect their receipt without ever having to walk away from their car.
What are the benefits of pay at the pump processing?
Today’s drivers expect fast, convenient services when stopping at the gas station. Pay at the pump processing eliminates the need to lock up the car, walk inside and pay the cashier at the counter before filling up – saving a great deal of time and hassle. In addition, pay at the pump allows gas station attendants more time to focus on other tasks and in store customers for improved service.
What is a fleet card?
A fleet card is a payment card that is ideal for businesses with company vehicles which must be closely monitored and managed. An HVAC company with several service trucks, for example, uses fleet cards to manage fuel expenses. With fleet card merchant account services, gas stations can accept major fleet cards securely and efficiently.
How does a gas station accept fleet cards and credit cards safely?
PCI compliance is required for any merchant accepting credit cards for business. By complying with PCI standards, gas stations can help to protect their customers from the risk of credit card fraud, while protecting their business from the heavy consequences of compromised data. For example, end-to-end encryption (E2EE) is a security feature that ensures sensitive data is encrypted from the point of swipe to authorization. Address Verification Systems (AVS) ask customers for their ZIP codes to verify accounts.
