The new Liberty Pay app is now available to download for Apple and Android devices. Liberty Pay features a station locator and enables secure mobile payments at the pump and in store.
"Mobile payment usage continues to gain customer adoption and is forecasted to grow tremendously," Don Frieden, P97's CEO said. "Today, 97% of people under the age of 45 and 68% of people over age 65 own a smartphone. Considering the fact that close to 60% of consumers buy gasoline at least once a week, the Liberty Pay mobile app provides the opportunity to expand contact with Liberty customers."
PetroZone is Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Europay, Mastercard and Visa (EMV) compliant, and utilizes Microsoft Azure Cloud Services, with multifactor authentication to secure cardholder data. Liberty said that mobile payments are generally more secure than EMV.
Liberty Pay does not require the installation of Near Field Communication panels, scanners or other hardware at the fuel dispenser.
