Why can’t I pay with PayPal or ApplePay in CarPlay and Android Auto?
Currently, mobile payment via CarPlay and Android Auto only works via giropay or credit cards. However, we are working quickly to integrate other payment options.
How can I save the payment methods to be able to use them via CarPlay or Android Auto?
Under “Settings” in “Your account”, you can add and delete the payment methods you want in the “Payment methods” section. To save a new payment method, follow the instructions in the app.
Currently, mobile payments via CarPlay and Android Auto only work via giropay or credit cards.
Will my payment information be transmitted securely?
The highest level of security is required especially for bank data. For this reason, your payment data is stored separately from your personal information and is specially protected.
Your data is encrypted during the payment process and each payment must be confirmed by you before any information is forwarded. You can adjust the exact level of security to your needs at any time in your account settings.
Even if you no longer want to use PACE Drive with certain payment data, we still guarantee a high level of security. If you decide to delete your payment information, it will be deleted instantly and irrevocably.
If my car display turns off after a short while after I turn off the engine at the gas station – how can I pay?
At automatic gas stations where you pay before filling up, you can simply complete the payment before filling up.
At gas stations with a store, where you pay after refueling, it works like this: If you have started the refueling process in the car and then get out to refuel, you will receive a notification on your smartphone and can continue the payment there as usual. Alternatively, you can continue the payment later in the car.
