Ahead of CES 2020, ExxonMobil and Fiserv announced that they are
transforming the way people pay for gasoline using Amazon Alexa. Coming
later this year, consumers with Alexa-enabled vehicles, Echo Auto, and
other Alexa-enabled mobility devices will be able to say, “Alexa, pay
for gas” when they pull up to the pump. This new experience will
initially be available at over 11,500 Exxon and Mobil stations in the
U.S., and is being demonstrated for the first time at CES 2020 in the
Amazon Automotive booth (Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall #5616).
Transactions will be processed using Amazon Pay, allowing consumers to
securely use the payment information stored in their Amazon account, and
powered by digital commerce technology from Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ:FISV),
a leading global provider of payments and financial services technology
“We’re excited to bring new technology and better experiences to the gas
station,” said Eric Carmichael, Americas fuels marketing manager at
ExxonMobil. “We build and seek out technology that will wow our
consumers, providing both ease of use and security.”
“As consumer expectations change, there is growing demand for
frictionless interactions that span the digital and physical worlds,”
said Devin McGranahan, senior group president, Global Business Solutions
at Fiserv. “The age of connected commerce is here, and voice-activated
smart devices will play a pivotal role in the future of payments by
streamlining the way consumers make purchases every day.”
Alexa, Pay for Gas
Paying for gas with Alexa is a seamless process for the consumer. When a
consumer is in an Alexa-enabled vehicle, or using Echo Auto or another
Alexa-enabled mobility device at an Exxon or Mobil station, they simply
say, “Alexa, pay for gas.” Alexa confirms the station location and the
pump number. Digital commerce technology from Fiserv will activate the
pump and facilitate token generation to help ensure a secure payment
experience. Payments will be processed through Amazon Pay; no additional
sign-up or separate account is required.

ExxonMobil has a strong history of innovation at the pump, debuting the
first pay-at-the-pump service in the 1980s and launching radio frequency
identification (RFID)-enabled touchless payment in the 1990s. And, as
the first fuel provider to offer voice-activated purchase through this
new Alexa experience, ExxonMobil is proud to announce another simple and
secure way to pay, expanding its payment solutions beyond the current Exxon
Mobil Rewards+TM app.
