team energie is continuing its digitization drive. As the next logical step into the mobile future, the first team gas stations are now available on PACE’s Connected Fueling platform. Drivers with the free PACE Drive app can now conveniently pay for their fuel directly at the pump.

Mobile, contactless payment is gaining ground in all areas. When it comes to refueling, it offers customers particular advantages: Paying via smartphone directly at the pump eliminates the need to go to the cash register and wear a mask when paying. Once payment has been completed, the receipt is automatically sent to the customer’s device by email and app, so that all expenses are always in view and nothing can get lost.

“Thanks to the cooperation with PACE, our customers now have an even more extensive selection for mobile payments, which is one of the largest on the German market.”

“Thanks to the cooperation with PACE, our customers now have an even more extensive selection for mobile payments, which is one of the largest on the German market,” reports team energie Managing Director Volker Behn. Service stations also benefit from the innovation. “Fast and contactless payment via app increases frequency and reduces waiting times both at the pump and at the checkout, and above all offers customers a smart and digitally sophisticated solution,” explains Volker Behn.

All drivers can use the function free of charge and without further obligations. The PACE Drive app for iOS and Android is available for free download in the app stores. Initially, mobile payment will be possible with PayPal at team energie. In the future, other payment methods such as credit card, Apple Pay and Google Pay will follow.
