Evyve has become the latest charging network to go live on Zap-Pay, the EV charging payment service from Zapmap.
The completed integration means that ten charge point operators across the UK are now Zap-Pay enabled, including Osprey, ESB Energy, char.gy, GeniePoint, Mer, MFG EV Power, Fastned, Alfa Power and Connected Kerb.
Evyve currently operates more than 200 chargers across the UK – primarily at retail and leisure outlets, business parks and restaurants – following partnerships with Greene King and Peel L&P.
Zap-Pay, a single-app payment solution that uses a credit or debit card to pay for charging within the Zapmap app, means drivers do not have to use different payment methods across all the various networks.
Drivers using Zap-Pay are also able to view their charging history, receive live status updates while away from their vehicle, and download receipts to help keep track of their spending.
They can also use both Apple Pay and Google Pay on all Zap-Pay enabled devices across the UK.
Alex Earl, Commercial Director at Zapmap, said, “As the tenth network to go live on Zap-Pay, I’m very pleased that Evyve has now come online as a fully fledged payment partner. With usage levels of Zap-Pay continually increasing, we expect to see Zap-Pay utilisation jump still further as the summer progresses.
“The addition of another nationwide charging provider will certainly be of great value for electric car drivers, whether they’re undertaking longer journeys or simply topping up at their destination.”
James Moat, CEO at Evyve, said, “We already consider Zapmap an important partner for charge point identification and route planning, but it is great to see progressive tools such as Zap-Pay being developed in-house to really tie the offering together and provide a great mobility service to the public.”
