Connected Kerb, one of the UK’s fastest-growing charging point operators, has joined the Zap-Pay payment network.
Zap-Pay allows drivers to pay for their EV charging within the Zap-Map app. Zap-Map is the UK’s leading EV mapping service and allows drivers to find charging points, plan longer journeys, and pay for charging.
“We are really excited about our partnership with Zap-Pay, a payment system that will help to provide a seamless charging experience for our customers. In an age where users are swamped with apps covering every activity of their daily life, we believe that the integration of finding, planning and paying for charging points within the same app will make EV charging hassle-free. This is an essential part of enabling a full EV transition,” says Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb.
“As we scale up our charging point presence across the UK, it is critical that our network can offer a reliable, easy-to-use and secure payment system and we are delighted that Zap-Pay does just that.”
Connected Kerb will become the eighth charge point operator to be added to the Zap-Pay network and recently announced plans to install 190,000 on-street EV chargers by 2030.
“We’re delighted to be working with Connected Kerb, whose reliable, affordable and accessible EV charging solutions will help to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles,” says Alex Earl, Commercial Director at Zap-Map.
“As EVs increasingly enter the mainstream, we need to make paying for charging as simple as possible. Connected Kerb’s solution combines power and data to deliver user-friendly charging for cities and communities, and their ethos chimes perfectly with Zap-Pay.
“Having Connected Kerb on board with Zap-Pay is great news for EV drivers – especially those without access to off-street parking – who will benefit from a convenient and easy-to-use service.”
