Autopay Europe is a cutting-edge system for fast and automatic payments utilising a mobile application along-side vehicle registration plates and identiﬁcation devices located at toll stations. It allows customers to pay for the selected service safely and conveniently while saving time, energy and natural resources.
The best option worldwide, and with the biggest number of users, Autopay oﬀers not only the highest quality, but also the most convenient and fastest payments. Its automatic and frictionless payments beneﬁt highways, petrol stations, electric chargers, parking lots, restaurants and more. It's ideal for people that commute, travel across borders, drive heavy vehicles or use autonomous cars.
Where Autopay delivers the most value
Autopay has been operating on three Polish motorways (A1, A2 and A4) for a year and is the first system in Europe to use video tolling technology for the electronic collection of toll gate payments on such a large scale. Over 1 000 000 travelers have already used the solution and they not only saved time but also reduced CO2 emissions and lowered the use of paper needed to print tickets and bills.
The Autopay mechanism can be successfully used in a number of other places, such as carparks in shop-ping malls or places with increased tourist traffic. It speeds up customer service, alongside controlling the current number of visitors, which translates into greater revenue control and eﬀective parking space man-agement.
Autopay can also be used at petrol stations and as a payment method for using electric car chargers. Automatic payment acceptance in such places significantly reduces the waiting time for service, relieves employees and increases customer satisfaction. Our mission is to create the entire ecosystem for "automatic payment by car", where registration numbers serve as a tool to complete the transaction - just like a payment card or smartphone.
carwashes and other businesses
By virtue of the agreement between Autopay and the WWWash company, the customers of several dozen, and ultimately several hundred, carwashes in Poland can use the automatic payment solution for car wash-ing services. Currently, this is based on QR codes available on non-contact car washes. After scanning the code (using a smartphone with the Autopay application installed) and choosing the washing program, the payment is automatically charged. During the pandemic, turnovers of most traditional carwashes dropped by about 60%, but carwashes from the WWWash network noted a 20% increase in revenues.
Autopay is not only a seamless payment option, but also:
The solution meets the highest security standards. User data is stored and protected in accordance with the latest European law (GDPR) and each trans-action is secured by SSL proto.
While creating this solution, we utilised resources, i.e. smartphones and ubiq-uitous monitoring systems, instead of producing additional accessories and wasting more natural resour.
The Autopay application is available for smartphones with iOS and Android operating systems. Owners of all vehi-cles in categories 1 to 5 can use the automatic payments - except for mo-torcycles.
A 6-minute stop in a traﬃc jam in front of a toll station results, on average, in 0.2l of fuel burned, which translates into 0.5 kg emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. 15 million jour-neys without getting stuck in traﬃc prevents as much as 7.5 million kg of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere. All of this is saved thanks to automatic payments.
2020 has shown us how important mutual care, responsibility and compli-ance with social distance recommen-dations are. The opportunity to pay for the journey without the use of cash or a card turned out to be extremely helpful during this time and saved travelers a lot of stress. Being aware of the threat of the next health crisis in the near future, we strive to extend the reach of Autopay to the whole of Europe and thereby eliminate at least one factor that may signiﬁcantly con-tribute to the spread of the epidemic.
