ExxonMobil brings Apple Pay support to 6,000 gas stations, but only through its app

ExxonMobil has updated its Speedpass+ app for iPhone, giving people the option to use Apple Pay when they want to pay for gas at certain ExxonMobil stations. According to CNET, the feature is now available at 6,000 stations, and will reach 10,000 by the end of 2016.

Rather than opting for a hardware solution to bring Apple Pay to the pump at its gas stations, ExxonMobile has thrown their efforts behind software. The app uses your location to determine which station you're using, or lets you scan a QR code. Once you select your pump number, you'll be prompted to confirm your payment with Touch ID. After you're done filling, you'll be charged, just as you would with any other card payment. You can still get a paper receipt if you wish.

You can find ExxonMobil Speedpass+ 4.1 on the App Store now.
