Gulf Oil to Launch Mobile Payment App

The pilot program will kick off this year in select markets

WELLESLEY HILLS, Mass. -- Gulf Oil announced the launch of Gulf Pay, a mobile payment application, that will allow customers to pay for fuel at the pump, purchase products in the convenience store and find Gulf Oil stations near them. The app will provide exclusive offers for fuel and in-store products at participating locations, and customers will have the option to customize in-app preferences.

The payment solution will launch in the first half of 2017 in select New England and New York markets. Gulf Oil plans to expand the app’s availability to additional markets in 2018.

The system is powered by P97’s PetroZone mobile commerce platform, and Gulf Oil has partnered with MasterCard to accept MasterPass, MasterCard’s mobile payment system, through the app. Gulf Oil plans to expand its partnerships to other leading mobile wallets and payment technologies.

"Mobile payment technology is changing the retail experience and the Gulf Pay app enhances transaction security and further delivers on our commitment to provide high-quality products and services in a fast and convenient environment," said Todd O’Malley, chief commercial officer for Gulf Oil.

P97 Networks, Houston, creates mobile commerce solutions for the retail fueling industry with its cloud-based mobile platform and contextual commerce engine.

Wellesley Hills, Mass.-based Gulf Oil is a refined products terminaling, storage and logistics business and a distributor of motor fuels in the United States.
