BP customers can now pay for fuel using the new BPme smartphone app, from the comfort of their car.
The service is being rolled out across BP’s network and is already available at 500 filling stations.
Nicola Grady Smith, BP’s head of retail, said: “BPme is making refuelling easier, faster, and more convenient than ever before. We are pleased to be able to give our customers a little bit of time back in what is their already busy day.”
Upon arrival at a BP filling station customers can open the app and confirm the pump number. A prompt to ‘Start Fuelling’ will appear and the vehicle can be re-fuelled as normal. Once the filling is complete, the customer can return to their car and leave. An email receipt will be automatically sent.
Customers can also connect their Nectar account, view transaction history, locate their closest BP service station and offset their carbon emissions caused from driving through BP’s Target Neutral programme for less than the price of a coffee, all from within the app.
“As part of BP’s digital transformation, BPme is the first step in changing the ways we interact with our customers. It will allow us to engage with drivers in a more direct and personal way and enable us to enhance our communications with the individual customer,” added Grady Smith.
The app is freely available for Apple and Android devices through the relevant app stores.
