Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex) cooperated with the global digital payment company Visa to launch contactless payment services at the former’s petrol stations across the country on May 31.

This payment form optimises experience of customers who now can make it simply by tapping their cards, said Dang Tuyet Dung, Visa Country Director for Vietnam and Laos.

The solution helps ease pressure on the petrol stations’ staff, speed up the process and ensure security for users and transactions, she highlighted, adding that the partnership will bring better quality of life for Vietnamese people.

Under the partnership, Petrolimex will deploy advanced Point-of-Sale (POS) devices across its network of retail petrol stations nationwide, where consumers can pay using Visa’s contactless-enabled cards.

Petrolimex began accepting payments via Visa cards last year.

The launch of the new service forms part of the strategies to make Petrolimex a leader in digital transformation, Deputy CEO Luu Van Tuyen said, adding POS devices have been installed at all automated stations of the State-run corporation.

According to a Visa study in 2021, contactless payment is becoming increasingly prevalent with nearly 46 percent of users opting for this method. One-third of Vietnamese users said they plan to use contactless payment for future purchase of petrol./.
