Canadian fintech company Nuvei Corporation announced it is providing payment solutions to Nayax, a global commerce enablement payments and loyalty platform provider to enable Circle K and Couche-Tard accept cashless payments at their EV charging points in Canada.
This will provide a seamless customer experience, ensuring EV drivers can utilize the same cashless payment methods they currently use when making purchases at existing gas stations.
Nayax's EV embedded payment system will enable Circle K and Couche-Tard customers to pay via multiple forms of cashless and contactless payments, including credit, debit, and prepaid cards. Transactions via Nayax's unattended payment terminals are processed by Nuvei to optimize payments acceptance and streamline user experience.
“We're thrilled to partner with Nayax to bring an industry-leading payments solution to the EV charging market, and to launch our solution with two of the most recognizable gas station and convenience store brands in North America,” says Philip Fayer, Nuvei chair and CEO. “We expect the growth of electric vehicles to continue to accelerate in the coming years, and we're excited about the solution we're providing to upgrade the EV charging experience for consumers.”
“Electric Vehicle charging is one of the fastest growing use cases in unattended payment terminal solutions,” adds Yair Nechmad, Nayax chief executive officer. “As an established payments solution provider for large players in the EV charging sector, we are pleased to stand alongside Nuvei, and provide our solution to the Alimentation Couche-Tard Group.”
Alimentation Couche-Tard operations lead, Stephane Drapeau-Bouchard, continues that, “We're bullish about the future of EV and the role charging points will play in growing and futureproofing our brands. Consumers want to pay at the charging points as conveniently as possible, so being able to offer best-in-class payment options will enable us to stay ahead of the competition as we grow our EV charging point offering, which is why we are excited about this partnership with Nuvei and Nayax.”
