PayPal, Total enable payments at P.R. gas stations through new mobile app

PayPal announced the launch of its partnership with Total Petroleum Puerto Rico, seeking to promote e-commerce in the island and to improve the supply of gasoline for Puerto Rican consumers and make it more efficient.

This new service will allow consumers
to pay with PayPal in more than 10 Total service stations islandwide, through the
mobile phone, using the Total e-Wallet application, executives said.

“Total wants consumer’s shopping
experience to be quick, simple, safe and convenient. We have achieved this
through Total e-Wallet,” said Pierre-Emmanuel Bredin, general manager of
Total Petroleum Puerto Rico Corp.

For Total, the alliance with PayPal is
strategic since it offers a solid and secure platform for processing of
electronic transactions, he said. Moreover, for consumers now it will be easier
to register in the application since they will do it with their PayPal account.

This concept provides convenience in
the payment process since they do not have to enter the store to make the
transaction.

“We are pleased to continue
promoting the development of the economy in the country, as well as offering
innovative services that make life easier for consumers. Our ongoing objective
is to promote the democratization of financial services and boost innovation in
the region, all this with security and convenience for our customers,” said
Mauricio Sepulveda, director of Cross Border Markets PayPal LatAm.

To use this service, users need to
download the Total e-Wallet application, and create or access their PayPal
account. And finally, users need to confirm the number of the station and pump and
pay.

Participating Service Stations
are in Arecibo, Bayamón, Caguas, Guaynabo, Mayagüez, Ponce, Salinas, and San
Juan.
