Enabling consumers to pay at the pump by asking Alexa

"Alexa, pay for gas." The new Fiserv tech will activate the pump and facilitate token generation to help ensure a secure payment experience.

Brookfield, Wis.-based fintech and payment provider Fiserv and Irving, Texas-based ExxonMobil announced that they are launching voice-enabled pay at the pump capabilities using Alexa-enabled vehicles, Echo Auto, and other Alexa-enabled mobility devices later this year.

Demonstrated for the first time at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, transactions processed using Amazon Pay, will allow consumers to securely use the payment information stored in their Amazon account, and powered by digital commerce technology from Fiserv.

“We’re excited to bring new technology and better experiences to the gas station,” Eric Carmichael, Americas fuels marketing manager, ExxonMobil, said. “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,” Devin McGranahan, senior group president, Global Business Solutions at Fiserv, said. “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.”
