TWINT now available as a payment option in the largest charging network for electric vehicles

Users of electric vehicles are now able to use TWINT to make payments at all of the 1260 evpass charging stations located across 410 cities. evpass is the largest provider of mobile charging stations in Switzerland. This means that TWINT is now the ideal method of payment for charging electric vehicles as well as for using public transport and parking spaces.

evpass is a company founded by Green Motion, the Swiss manufacturer of electric charging stations.

More than 12,000 evpass users charge their vehicles at an evpass charging station every month. The convenient charging stations are located at carefully selected public locations alongside the road network. The charging systems come equipped with different types of connectors as well as a built-in charging cable.

'As the largest provider of electric charging stations in Switzerland, it was clear to us that we wanted to include TWINT as a method of payment. Due to the fact that it is a debit system, it meets the needs of many customers who don’t want to use a credit card to make payments,' explained François Randin, CEO of evpass.

Pay for all types of mobility using TWINT

In addition to TWINT being a simple way to pay to charge electric vehicles, it has also established itself as a payment method for all types of mobility. TWINT can already be used to pay for over 80,000 parking spaces in Switzerland, thus negating the need to have cash.

You can now also use TWINT as a method of payment for all of the public transport offerings of all the main mobility providers. The SBB has incorporated TWINT as a payment method in its app, its online ticket shop and at its ticket machines. BLS, Fairtiq and a wide range of private railway networks have already been using TWINT for a long time, with ZVV (Zürcher Verkehrsverbund) also coming on board next week.

'We are now able to say that with TWINT there’s no need to carry your purse or wallet around with you to pay for most of life’s necessities – whether it be public transport, parking spaces, charging stations, your shopping at the two major retailers Coop and Migros as well as in numerous small shops, or in a large number of restaurants,' said a delighted Markus Kilb, CEO of TWINT.

TWINT currently generates between 2.5 million and 3 million transactions per month with around 100,000 acceptance points at points of sales and in the area of e-commerce.
