BP launches mobile refuel app trial

Sally McMullen 2 August 2016

BP customers can now pay for fuel and earn Velocity points from the comfort of their cars with the BPMe app.

BP Australia has announced the launch of the BPMe app this week, allowing customers to pay for fuel and earn Velocity rewards points without stepping beyond the bowser.

An Australian-first, the app was developed by New Zealand company PaperKite and will be offered to a select group of BP Plus Card customers in a pilot test over August. Once the test is complete, the app will be released to a larger group of BP Customers across 240 participating service stations in September 2016. Ultimately, BP intends to have BPMe available for all Plus Card customers across 340+ sites by this October.

The app will be free to download on both iOS and Android devices. BP has launched the app on the back of the popularity of mobile and cardless payments in Australia, hoping that it will offer customers a faster way to refuel on-the-go.

As well as paying for fuel, you can also use the app to track odometer readings, store electronic fuel receipts and locate nearby BP service stations.

This news comes less than a month after BP's announcement that customers can use their Velocity Points to pay for fuel at the checkout.
