Liberty PlugIns Partners with QuickPay on EV Charging Mobile Payments

For the past cou­ple of years, pub­lic elec­tric vehi­cle charg­ing sta­tions have been avail­able free of charge, to get ear­ly adopters used to charg­ing their Leafs and Volts at the shop­ping mall, movie the­ater, work­place, etc. That is start­ing to change now, and it’s a real chal­lenge for prop­er­ty own­ers, util­i­ties, munic­i­pal gov­ern­ments, and charg­ing infra­struc­ture sup­pli­ers to fig­ure out pay­ment meth­ods that won’t anger con­sumers and fleets. Charg­ing sta­tion solu­tions com­pa­ny Lib­er­ty Plu­g­Ins (LPI) has part­nered with mobile pay­ment plat­form provider Quick­Pay Corp. to cre­ate a pay­ment sys­tem for park­ing struc­tures with charg­ing sta­tions.

The com­bined solu­tion will allow dri­vers to pay for a charg­ing ses­sion by mobile phone, via text mes­sage or smart­phone app, using the QP Quick­Pay mobile pay­ment ser­vice and receive a charg­ing autho­riza­tion code from LPI. Dri­vers will be able to locat­ed QP-enabled charg­ing sta­tions when search­ing for park­ing, sav­ing time and adding con­ve­nience. Park­ing providers and facil­i­ties man­agers can stream­line the process of offer­ing charg­ing sta­tions with an easy, low-cost way to man­age EV charg­ing pay­ments. “Mobile pay­ments make adding this fea­ture sim­ple and cost-effec­tive for dri­vers and providers alike,” said Chris Out­wa­ter, CEO, Lib­er­ty Plu­g­ins.
