The Shell chain has 6,400 gas stations in Brazil – about 2,000 of those are ready for the great, innovative system launched in partnership with e-commerce solutions company Mercado Livre: from now on, drivers can pay for fuel using Shell’s app Shell Box or applications from Mercado Livre and payment platform Mercado Pago.
Clients have numerous advantages by using this method: in addition to improving their experience, as they no longer need to wait for the debit and credit card machine, it allows drivers to get discounts and avail themselves of deals that are offered exclusively in the app, enjoy payment security via digital account and even earn points to be exchanged for benefits.
