Parking information and payment company Parkopedia is extending its existing parking payment platform to include additional vehicle-centric services such as Electric Vehicle charging, fuelling and tolling payments.
Parkopedia first launched in-car payments in 2014 with the a platform delivered in partnership with Volvo. Now it says it aims to simplify how drivers make payments for their wider vehicle-based purchases, by consolidating multiple global merchants into one account.
“In-car payments for vehicle services can mean having to deal with hundreds of merchants,” the company explains in a statement. “Parkopedia’s new platform aggregates these merchants and eliminates the existing barriers to entry, such as the need to swipe a card to unlock a charging station, or to pay for fuel, delivering a heightened level of connected service to drivers and simplifying management for automakers.”
