Motorists can now use their Visa debit and credit cards to pay for fuel at more than 120 Total service stations across Kenya as the installation of Point of Sale devices nears completion.
"Drivers can make payments using their cards at the stations' point of sale devices from the comfort of their vehicles, enhancing safety," said Jabu Basopo, country Manager for Visa in East and Southern Africa. Other fuel stations that accept payment by Visa include Shell, Oilybia, Engen and some Kenol Kobil stations.
Visa plans to extend this service to Uganda and Tanzania later this year. The service stations currently accept cash, the TOTAL BONVOYAGE fuel card, Visa payments, mobile money payments. The MasterCard is also used in some fuel stations.
