Waze, the popular GPS navigation app owned by Google, has introduced contactless payments for ExxonMobil and Shell card holders in the U.S.

When drivers pull into participating stations, they will see a notification on Waze prompting their Android or iOS device to securely pay through each company’s app.

“Waze is committed to continuing to help businesses leverage innovative technology to adapt, evolve, and engage with customers,” said Andrew Kandel, Waze U.S. country manager, in a statement.
