The role of in-car and cloud technology in enabling location-based activations and payments for a contact-free, multi-fuel future forecourt

With driver demands of forecourts and their associated services changing significantly in recent years, we explore how in-car and cloud technology can support the transition to contact-free activations, promotions and digital payments, which will be vital in supporting dedicated forecourt EV charging. We will also cover the recently expanded Parkopedia Payment Platform, discussing our unique ‘Single Sign-On’ functionality across all major vehicle-centric payment use cases, and focus on our recent fueling payment partnerships that have seen Parkopedia quickly become the largest facilitator of in-car fuel payments in Europe.
