Shell has this week announced a new way for drivers to pay for petrol at the pumps in the UK, allowing users to pay to fill up their tank with PayPal.
To use the new Shell PayPal service (Fill up and Go) all you need to do is register your device at Shell’s website, and then download the Shell app. Once you have completed the setup process you are then able to pay for your petrol using your linked PayPal account.
Once at the forecourt there is one extra step, you need to scan a QR code on your mobile device, once scanned it will make the payment. However as mobile phones are banned on forecourts, Shell advises that users should stay in their car whilst scanning the QR code.
You can spend as little as £5 with the new service, or a maximum of £100, Shell says that this will soon be changed to purchases from £20 to £150 per transaction.
Fill Up & Go is only available in the UK at the moment, and will only be rolled out on a station by station basis according to Shell. The new service does support both Android and iOS devices.
