P97 Chase mobile pay at pump

NEW YORK & HOUSTON -- Mobile commerce provider P97 Networks Inc. has launched a program to enable mobile commerce with Chase Pay for consumers to pay at the pump and make in-store purchases with their smart phones.

Chase Pay is a secure payment service that enables merchants to accept consumer payments in-store, online and in app.

“With the combination of P97’s PetroZone mobile commerce platform and Chase Pay, we are thrilled to deliver more payment options to consumers at the pump,” said Donald Frieden, president and CEO of P97. “We are confident this combined solution will deliver an innovative mobile payment experience for the retail fuels market customer.”

Chase’s strategic partnership with P97 will allow Chase Pay to integrate with retail site systems through P97’s PetroZone Mobile Commerce Platform, including mobile payment capabilities, digital marketing, loyalty programs and customer reward systems.

“Our technology partners, such as P97, are industry visionaries who will integrate Chase Pay into merchants’ overall payment acceptance strategy,” said Tom Nipper, executive director of global enterprise solutions for Chase commerce solutions.

As the payments industry increasingly shifts from plastic to digital, Chase is leveraging new partnerships and technology to advance the consumer digital experience, it said. With P97’s PetroZone mobile commerce platform integrated to existing gas station infrastructure, Chase customers will be able to search for and navigate to the nearest gas station, make mobile payments at the pump and pay for merchandise with their mobile phones.

The deal follows announcements of partnerships between MasterCard and P97 and Chase Pay and Merchant Customer Exchange LLC (MCX).

Houston-based P97 Networks provides secure, cloud-based mobile commerce and digital marketing solutions for the convenience retail and fuels marketing industry under the brand name PetroZone. P97’s mCommerce solutions enhance the ability of convenience-store operators, marketers and oil companies to attract and retain customers by providing technology that securely connects millions of individual mobile phones and connected cars with identity and geo-location based software technology to create connected-consumer experiences. P97’s software personalizes the “find-buy-save” experience for every mobile consumer.
