Centex Petroleum is partnering with Payment Source to provide Now Prepay products and services to its customers.
Centex, a mix of dealer and corporately owned convenience and petroleum locations in Western Canada, selected Now Prepay’s full service prepaid solution because it will enable them to create an enhanced offering to their customers.
“To have Centex join the Now Prepay network is a testament to our product offering, leading technology, and top-tier support helping our partners grow their business,” says Jason Groulx, vice-president merchant services at Payment Source. “It has been a pleasure to create this program with Centex Petroleum which is specific to the goals they have for their prepaid category. We look forward to rolling out this program with Centex and supporting their locations through the growth that will come with it.”
Now Prepay offers prepaid programs ranging from prepaid mobile top ups, gift cards and financial products and services through the use of leading edge technology. Now Prepay will work with each Centex location to their revenue opportunities by taking advantage of the diverse prepaid programming now available to them.
"We're excited to be partnered with Now Prepay. They are leaders in the prepaid category whose goals are to increase new and repeat customer foot traffic, provide the widest prepaid product offering, and support the best prepaid retail technology to Centex locations,” says Apurav Bhalla, operations manager, Centex Petroleum. “Having Now Prepay as our prepaid partner gives us the support we need to succeed in this category and that will position our Company and network of participating Centex locations for continued growth.”
Founded in 1986, Centex prides itself in being 100% Western Canadian owned and operator, plus fully independent. In other words, the chain no affiliation or obligation to any one fuel supplier, but instead shops around everyday, depending on the wholesale price of various fuels and their availability, buying fuel with the goal of providing customers with the most competitive prices.
The first location in the Inglewood area of Calgary and today there are locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. According to the company website, all fuels are refined and processed by major Western Canadian refiners. In addition to fuel, Centex’s Go Market convenience stores are stocked with everyday necessities including snack foods, soft drinks, hot and fresh foods, coffee, tea, specialty beverages, toiletries, magazines and more. Some sites also feature car washes and QSR, specifically Subway and Tim Hortons.
The deal with Payment Source will enable Centex to provide alternative payment solutions to better serve its customers.
