When it comes to topping up gas, we all want to be served fast and just pay immediately. That’s why Caltex and Visa partnered up to bring Paywave Visa to a majority of Caltex stations nationwide.
Visa Paywave is the latest payment method that is EMV compliant for secure and fast transactions, a customer just needs to tap their Visa Paywave enabled card to pay in a terminal compatible with Visa Paywave.
The advantage of Visa Paywave as compared to traditional cash, debit and credit card are the following
- No counting of money
- Integrated payment with just one tap
- Your card will never leave your sight
- No more hassle of the gasoline staff going back and forth the cashier
- No signatures (for transactions less than Php2,000)
That means that Caltex can serve you faster by simply telling your desired amount and type of gas and just show your Visa Paywave Card.
We were impressed with their demo as it only took less than 15 seconds to pay Php1,000 using Visa Paywave. It took even longer to top-up the Php1,000 diesel than paying, so it means that you can significantly save time and caltex staffs can focus more to other customers when needed.
An official receipt is printed also via the mobile terminal, it serves as your official receipt but should you need an OR…it will be done manually as it’s not yet possible for computerized method.
Fortunately, even the Happy Plus or Robinsons Rewards card can be accomodated via the Visa Paywave terminal, so accrediting your points won’t be a problem.
To heat things up, Caltex also announced their “Drive Away a Millionare” promo to win as much as Php1,000,000 Visa Card Credit! For every top up of Platinum, Silver, and Diesel with Techron) using their Visa enabled credit or debit card gives you a chance to win!
