ExxonMobil App Connects With Apple Watch

​SPRING, Texas – ExxonMobil is rolling out several updates to its Speedpass mobile payment app. Now, consumers can use the app with Ford vehicles equipped with Ford SYNC 3, and the Apple Watch to purchase fuel and car washes at approximately 10,000 participating Exxon and Mobil stations across the United States.

Introduced in early 2017, Ford’s AppLink technology in SYNC 3 is the first fuel payment connected car application in the United States. Ford owners can also use the app to check how much fuel is left in the tank when they are away from their car, allowing them to better plan their day.

In addition, consumers can now use the Speedpass app on their Apple Watch. With just a few clicks on the watch, consumers can select their pump and authorize payment.

ExxonMobil is introducing several additional updates to the Speedpass app, including the option to use the “Apply and Buy” feature to apply for an ExxonMobil Smart Card, a private-label credit card issued by Citibank. Once an application is approved, the card will be automatically added as a payment option within the app for the consumer to begin using. For a limited time, new accounts will receive a savings of 20 cents per gallon for the first two months, then six cents on every gallon after that.

“We are focused on providing consumers with the best possible experience at our Exxon and Mobil stations,” said Kim Kemper, U.S. loyalty manager for ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company.

All Speedpass app transactions use an encrypted token to protect the consumer’s data. Consumers can select their payment method from options including major credit cards, debit cards, ExxonMobil Smart Cards, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay.
