Drivers Get New Level of Convenience and Security With Gasoline Industry's

First Pay At The Pump Biometric Payment Service



01 Nov, 2007, 01:00 ET from Shell Oil Products US

    CHICAGO, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time, drivers can pay for
 their gasoline with just the touch of a finger thanks to a new payment
 method Shell Oil Products US is piloting in Chicagoland starting this week.
 Shell is the first gasoline retailer in the world to adopt Pay By Touch's
 convenient and secure biometric payment technology. Shell is piloting Pay
 By Touch at 10 Chicagoland retail locations.*
     "What's easier than paying at the pump with your finger? Pay By Touch
 will help Shell customers refill faster and easier, which is why we are so
 excited to be the first gasoline retailer in the world to offer it to
 consumers," said Chris Suess, manager of global refueling innovations. "We
 are always striving to make our customers' experiences more convenient and
 Pay By Touch is free, fast, secure and easy."
     Biometrics is a means of verifying personal identity by measuring and
 analyzing unique physical or behavioral characteristics like fingerprints
 or voice patterns, and is already popular with Chicagoland shoppers. They
 have been paying for groceries with just the touch of a finger at Jewel and
 Cub Foods stores for more than a year, and now they can use Pay By Touch at
 Shell without having to sign up again. The Pay By Touch system at Shell
 uses a simple finger scan to debit an individual's checking account or
 charge their Shell Card or Shell MasterCard. This is one of the most secure
 payment methods at the pump or in the Shell retail store.
     "We are honored to be working with Shell -- a technology leader and our
 first gasoline industry partner," said John Rogers, Pay By Touch founder
 and executive chairman. "When its time to get gasoline at Shell, all
 drivers will need is a finger, making the task more convenient and the
 transaction more secure. Pay By Touch helps Shell provide better customer
 service, which is good for their customers and their bottom line."
     Signing up and using Pay By Touch at Shell is easy. All you need is a
 government issued photo ID, a payment method (paper check, Shell Card or
 Shell MasterCard) and your finger to enroll! Get started online anytime at
 http://www.shell.com/paybytouch or visit a participating Shell location.
 New and existing Pay By Touch members will be awarded a $10 Shell Gift Card
 after their fourth purchase at Shell as a thank you for participating in
 the pilot. Once enrolled, Shell customers can immediately make purchases
 with the touch of a finger at any of the participating Shell stations and
 at all other Pay By Touch participating grocers across the nation.
