ExxonMobil launched a mobile payment app on Tuesday that will allow customers to use Apple Pay at the gas pump.

The company’s Speedpass+ mobile payment app is now available at more than 6,000 Exxon- and Mobil-branded retail stations across the United States.

Exxon is the first major fuel retailer to accept mobile payment at the pump, including Apple Pay, throughout the majority of its U.S. network.

The app allows customers to authorize a pump for payment securely through the use of cloud-based technology.

Customers have the option to select Apple Pay as a default form of payment from within the app.

“ExxonMobil wants to make filling up your vehicle even more convenient and the Speedpass+ app has been designed to save you time at the pump. The Speedpass+ app represents the next generation of payment options at our branded stations,” ExxonMobil vice president fuels and lubricants marketing Matt Bergeron said.

The Speedpass+ mobile payment app is available as a free download, and may also be linked to checking accounts or other major credit and debit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and ExxonMobil cards.

Customers who select Apple Pay will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by their credit and debit cards, the company added.

Customers can also obtain receipts by email, at the pump, or both.

“With either option, the customer’s purchase history is recorded in the app for easy reference, which is particularly helpful for tracking business expenses,” Exxon said.

The app can also be used to identify nearby stores enabled for mobile payment.

ExxonMobil plans to expand the app’s availability to more than 8,000 branded locations by the middle of this year.
