Only 13.3% of motorists across Europe use mobile payments at the forecourt, due to the lack of service stations accepting this payment type. With motorists also being limited to a maximum spend of around £20 (dependent on local currency) per transaction, many are unable to use mobile payment methods, even if they have set them up.
Italy has the highest spend on mobile payments per transaction across the top five European countries at €26.79 due to the number of smaller vehicles and scooters in the national parc, that have smaller tanks making their refuel cost eligible as it comes under the transaction limit.
European motorists who use mobile payments do so twice a month on average. With the maximum spend using mobile payments being so low, many motorists will only be able to use this payment type if they are not refuelling their tank fully or visiting the shop for food and drink items, limiting its use at the forecourt.Reasons To Buy
