GeniePoint has become the latest charging network to adopt the Zap-Pay EV charging payment system, available from within the Zap-Map app.
Other EV charging networks currently using Zap-Pay include Osprey, ESB Energy and char.gy.
As a single-app payment system that uses a credit or debit card to pay for charging, Zap-Pay avoids the need to use different payment methods across the various networks.
The agreement with Genie Point agreement means about 1,700 charging devices across the UK are now Zap-Pay enabled.
GeniePoint has 800 charge points, including more than 500 rapid chargers in England, Scotland and Wales, from Dundee to Falmouth.
The network has chargers at more than 200 sites of supermarket chain Morrisons, and has also installed EV chargers at Premier Inn locations.
Alex Earl, Commercial Director at Zap-Map, said, “Not only is GeniePoint a valuable addition to the Zap-Pay partner network, but as a nationwide charging company with rapid and fast charge points at convenient locations, it will make paying for charging that much easier for Zap-Map users.
“We’ve seen usage of Zap-Pay increase significantly, especially since the summer, and I’m really looking forward to seeing this trend accelerate as GeniePoint comes online with Zap-Pay.”
Dee Humphries, Managing Director of Equans’ EV Solutions business, the company that owns and runs the GeniePoint network, said: “At GeniePoint, our focus is always on making it as easy as possible for EV drivers to get a charge when they need it.
“That’s why we’ve been working hard on the integration with Zap-Pay – it’s another way that we are improving our experience for drivers and making charging easier.
“I’m excited for us to be going live with Zap-Pay because together we can provide a convenient and easy-to-use service for EV drivers across the country.”
