GE Energy Teams Up with PayPal for WattStation
GE Energy’s Industrial Solutions business announced details of an agreement it had entered with PayPal to launch the ecomagination-approved WattStation and WattStation Connect, a complete electric vehicle charging platform solution.
The agreement between GE Energy and PayPal enables drivers to securely and conveniently pay for charging fees through the WattStation Connect mobile app and PayPal.
In April, GE launched WattStation and WattStation Connect networked platform that allows users to manage and monitor the charging of their electric vehicles.
With the app, now available at the Apple iTunes Store, users can locate the nearest WattStation EV charger; check the status of the charger; get pricing details and pay with PayPal.
Here’s how it works — EV drivers use the app to scan the quick response (QR) code on the WattStation charger. The QR code will identify the WattStation and the pricing structure for that individual charger; drivers then simply pay for the charge via PayPal. In addition to the app, EV drivers can locate the nearest WattStation charging station on the recently launched website, www.gewattstation.com.
