The solution is set to enable customers to use a fingerprint sensor in their car to make secure digital payments at more than 3,600 service stations in Germany.
The move will make the German auto-mobile giant the first car manufacturer to integrate Mastercard Secure Card on File for Commerce Platforms technology for online payments into its vehicles.
Franz Reiner, chairman of the board of Mercedes-Benz Mobility, claims that the service is soon to be integrated across other European markets – and even suggested that fingerprint payments in vehicles will soon become the norm.
Reiner said, “We are pioneers in native in-car payment and are already working on the integration of further services.”
The in-car payments system will allow the driver to see the amount of fuel put into their vehicle, and then invoice the amount to their Mastercard debit or credit cards on the in-car MBUX dashboard display.
Payment will be made automatically, and the driver will be able to leave the petrol station without having to walk to the checkout area, before the invoice is then sent to the consumer via email.
