Road to demo payment solution for EV charging at InstallerSHOW

Electric vehicle charging management platform Road  will showcase its new, frictionless payment solutions for charge point owners at InstallerSHOW.

The payment solutions are easy to integrate and help charge point operators (CPOs) comply with the UK’s Public Charge Point Regulations 2023 and the EU’s Alternative Fuels Infrastructure (AFIR) law. Both specify that charge point operators must offer transparent and accessible payment options for EV charging. In the UK, all new public charge points installed after 24 November 2023 of 8kW or more, and existing charge points of 50kW and above must offer contactless payment from 24 November 2024. The total price of a charging session must be displayed clearly in pence per kilowatt hour either on the charge point or through a separate device. CPOs must also enable roaming at all public charge points by 2025.

Tap to Pay solution
Road’s new industry leading Tap to Pay solution simplifies the entire EV charging and card payment process from tap to settlement. It’s compatible with a broad range of payment terminals, including Payter, Worldline, CCV and OPM, and allows drivers to easily pay for their charging sessions using their preferred payment method without entering into a pre-existing contract with the operator. To build the Tap to Pay solution, Road partnered with three major acquiring service providers to remove the need for CPOs to set up and manage their own agreements with payment services providers (PSPs). This saves CPOs from fluctuating transaction fees and the administrative burden of sourcing their own PSPs. Tap to Pay covers all major credit and debit card payment methods and works for leading DC charge point and AC charge point brands in the UK and European markets.

Scan to Pay solution
For UK-located public charge points below 8kW, Road created a simple and hassle-free Scan to Pay solution that simplifies the entire EV charging and payment process at AC charging stations. Operating via a QR code sticker linked to a dynamic landing page, drivers can view all the relevant tariff information before they start and pay for a charging session. The Scan to Pay solution accepts all major payment methods including Visa, Mastercard, Google Pay and Apple Pay.

James Chapman, Road Country Manager for UK & Ireland, said: “Our mission as a company is to make EV charging transactions effortless for everyone. By supplementing our existing mobile application with new Scan to Pay and Tap to Pay functionality, our customers are now able to offer flexible payment solutions regardless of their hardware bundles. We’re particularly excited by our industry leading payment terminal integrations. With this advancement we can now manage the full transactional flow for our customers and provide support services to include financial queries too. A first in the UK charge point management space.”

Head to stand 5G100 at InstallerSHOW for a demonstration of the new payment solutions.
