Caltex brings Apple Pay to its customers to deliver a safe, contactless way to pay for fuel

24 July 2020 — Caltex Australia today brings its customers Apple Pay – a safe, secure and convenient way to pay for their fuel through the Caltex Australia app.

The app, which recently achieved over 500,000 downloads, lets customers pay for fuel safely from the comfort of their vehicle, providing a faster, contactless way to pay for fuel by cash or credit card.

The introduction of Apple Pay is an example of Caltex’s commitment to using technology to innovate and provide convenient solutions for our customers. It forms part of Caltex’s strategy to streamline payment solutions to achieve a simple, reliable and flexible customer experience across its network.

Joanne Taylor, Executive General Manager, Retail, said that the app since its inception has driven both customer loyalty and visitation frequency.

“In addition to our self-serve technology, the app is central to our strategy of streamlining payment solutions to unlock growth by offering seamless and frictionless payment options for our customers.

“With over 200,000 downloads in the past two months, our customers are already recognising that this app provides a safe and secure transaction when they visit our sites. The Apple Pay integration will further enhance these benefits for customers. We look forward to welcoming Apple Pay users to Caltex.”

In addition to paying for fuel, the Caltex Australia app also features the ability to earn Woolworths Rewards points, search for nearby Caltex sites and access exclusive offers and promotions, including an introductory discount of six cents off per litre on their first three fills.

Apple Pay provides an additional level of security in the app as payments are authenticated via numerous encrypted transactions with developer-specific keys before the transaction information is sent to the payment processor. Apple Pay is designed with customer security and privacy as a priority, with the addition of convenience providing a simpler and more secure way to pay.  

To download the Caltex Australia app, go to the App Store or Google Play.
