Tap and Go EV Chargers

Tap and Go EV Chargers

Make it easy for electric vehicle drivers to use public electric car chargers

Australian and New Zealand drivers are demanding familiar and easy-to-use public charging. Charging that doesn’t ask for their personal details.

That’s why we offer a range of convenient, popular payment options EV drivers are familiar with — pay and go options used widely in other developed countries such as the UK.

EV drivers charging at your venue can pay using any major credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay — or any other tap-on, tap-off payment types.

This payment system is compatible with all chargers in Australia, including our Melbourne made AURIGA EV charger.

All these make it easier for EV drivers to charge and gives you a cost-effective way to monetise your investment.

Paying is as easy as 1, 2, 3 for EV drivers

  1. EV drivers pull up to the dedicated charging bay
  2. Choose their charging time (in 30 minute increments)
  3. Tap their card or phone to start the charging session

Your customers can pay quickly and easily using their choice of payment:

  • Credit card or debit card
  • Google Pay
  • Apple Pay
  • Samsung Pay
  • All other tap-on, tap-off payment types

Easily monetise your EV charging venue

Our attractive PayPass units connect up to 2 chargers or 4 ports which make them a cost-effective way to monetise your onsite EV charging.

Best of all, this payment system is compatible with every EV charging unit on sale in Australia, including our Melbourne-made AURIGA AC EV charging unit.

We’ve partnered with an industry-leading payment switch provider to offer EV charging site owners PayPass and credit card hardware.

This means your customers can pay using any major credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay — or any other tap-on, tap-off payment types.

Why offer more flexible payment options for EV drivers

We found that early adopters were willing to immerse themselves in every feature of electric car driving, including app sign-ups & check-ins.

But as electric vehicles become more mainstream, Australian and New Zealand drivers want public charging that’s easy and familiar. They also don’t want to share their personal details.

As one driver put it to the EVUp consulting team, 'I don't have to give my name and address when I fill up with petrol. Why do I have to when charging my car?'

Overseas EV drivers now expect tap-and-go credit card billing

Electric car drivers in more mature overseas markets expect easy ways to pay for charging. In the United Kingdom, all charging stations are retrofitted or installed with tap-and-go systems.

This British Government authorised this change in 2019 to reduce confusion for drivers who experienced a wide range of charge point operator methods, platforms, and billing systems.

An easy tap-and-go enabled system allows EV drivers to access AC and DC charging. It also helped new EV drivers adjust to public charging more quickly and share their experiences with others who wanted to decarbonise transport.

The Australian EV transition is several years behind other developed countries.

However, the demand for credit card billing is increasing. We’ve anticipated this. That’s why we offer a tap-and-go system that works well in other countries.
