SPAIN, 2016-Aug-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour Spain has 122 service stations and introduced the new payment system in July. It’s based on an app called My Carrefour, which can be downloaded for free from Apple Store or Google Play.

The service is restricted to Pass card holders, who have to register via a safe and easy form in the app. Once registered with the service, customers can pay for their fuel without having to leave their cars.
The app uses geolocation to identify the service station visited by the customer. The customer then has to select the pump, product and amount before refuelling as normal. If the customer is in a non-Carrefour service station, the My Carrefour app shows the nearest Carrefour fuelling point.

Fuel purchases for food savings
The My Carrefour app also allows customers to personalize their fuel purchases each time they use the app and register their preferences to make future fuel purchases easier and quicker, reducing the time they spend in their refuelling stops.

Customers can also use their discount coupons and save 8% on their fuel purchases in Carrefour service stations using their Pass or Club Carrefour cards, which are totally free. The saving accumulates on the customer’s Chequeahorro account, which offers savings in purchases made in hypermarkets, Market supermarkets and Carrefour.es.

An App that makes shopping easier
Smartphone fuel payments are one of the latest features available with the My Carrefour app. The retailer launched the app last year to incorporate new digital services in the daily lives of its consumers. The app makes consumers’ lives easier by allowing them to virtually book their turn in hypermarket fresh produce counters, create shopping lists with voice commands and receive digital shopping receipts to check for refunds and changes.
