With the new service, Visa cardholders can just wave their cards in front of readers to pay for Caltex fuel – no swiping of cards, signing of receipts, or entering PIN.

Visa cardholders purchasing Caltex fuel worth P2, 000 and below at participating Caltex stations nationwide can avail of the new payments technology.

“Visa always wants to reduce friction in the payment process. We are excited to partner with Chevron Philippines once again to bring seamless customer experience to motorists. Visa payWave is much quicker, more secure and more convenient than cash,” said Stuart Tomlinson, Visa country manager for the Philippines and Guam.

“Motorists gassing up using Visa payWave will definitely be able to experience quicker service in our forecourts. Motorists can transact securely and with ease, knowing that they remain in control of their card at all times,” said CPI country chairman Peter Morris.

To kick off the partnership, Chevron, together with Visa, will be holding the “Drive Away a Millionaire” promo starting April 21, 2017 to July 31, 2017.

Visa cardholders using Visa payWave to purchase any Caltex fuel (Platinum with Techron, Silver with Techron and Diesel with Techron D) at participating stations will get the chance to win Visa card credit worth P1 million. Three lucky motorists will also receive 1-year Starcash worth P100, 000.

Each Caltex fuel-up using Visa payWave will entitle motorists to three raffle entries for every P500 payment increment. Meanwhile, each Visa contact transaction is equivalent to one raffle entry.

Motorists gassing up at Caltex can also get an instant prize of P50 discount to be deducted outright from their fuel purchase.
