E-COMMERCE giant Shopee Malaysia has partnered Caltex to bring the cashless form of payment to more than 420 Caltex service stations nationwide using its e-wallet, ShopeePay.

Caltex, marketed by Chevron Malaysia Ltd, will be the first fuel provider in the country to offer ShopeePay, bringing more convenience and security, especially for motorists.

ShopeePay head Alain Yee said this collaboration will mark Shopee’s first partnership with a petrol company and the platform is excited to be introducing a new contactless payment option to customers.

“Our effort to support the retail industry with ShopeePay is in response to consumers’ changing behaviour as Malaysians opt for contactless payments amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Being able to use ShopeePay with offline merchants provide greater convenience to Malaysians as they can do all their shopping and payments online and offline via a single app, making their experience more seamless.

“Through this partnership with Caltex, ShopeePay users will be able to fuel up for their journey wherever they go,” Yee said.

Chevron Malaysia country chairman Jay Gomez said the fuel provider is committed to offering excellent products and services in all its stores.

“Part of such commitment is also prioritising customer convenience at our service stations. We are excited to introduce a new contactless payment option, and working together with ShopeePay allows us to provide fast, easy and secure transactions at our stations, more so now with the growing adoption of contactless payments in the country,” Gomez said.

Users will be rewarded with RM4 cashback when RM40 or more is spent at any Caltex station using ShopeePay as the form of payment.

“This special offer will be from Nov 9 until Dec 31, 2020. Each ShopeePay user is entitled to receive up to three cashbacks throughout the campaign period, or until it is fully redeemed, whichever comes first,” Gomez added.
