Comdata announced that it is now processing live customer transactions via its cardless fueling technology. The first transaction occurred on July 31 at the Love’s Travel Stop in Pauls Valley, Okla.

The Comdata cardless system automates the fueling process and data entry requirements with the use of a cost-effective RFID tag. This allows drivers to spend less time at the pump and reduces the risk of fraudulent transactions by automatically shutting the fuel pump off when the truck pulls away. Comdata clients benefit from the same controls and limits that come with a physical Comdata Card when using the cardless system.

Love’s is near completion of enabling all 292 locations to accept cardless transactions. In addition, Travel Centers of America (TA) is in the process of equipping all of their locations to accept cardless transactions.

“Comdata redefined the marketplace by introducing the first universally accepted fuel card for the transportation industry in 1981, and we continue to look for ways to bring innovation to the industry. Cardless technology is the way of the future in fuel transaction processing,” said Steve Stevenson, president of Comdata. “Our vision is to provide an industry-wide solution that is deployed on an open platform; allowing all merchants, billing card companies and fleets to take advantage of a flexible platform.”
