Comdata Corporation, a provider of electronic payment systems, announced that transactions from its cardless fuel system can process through its Smart Solutions point-of-sale (POS) platform.

The Davis Travel Center in Stony Creek, Va. is processing cardless transactions and was the first to do so using Comdata’s Smart Solutions. This location is one of two Davis Travel Center sites to implement the SmartQ cardless fueling technology with the Smart Solutions POS.

Smart Solutions is a consolidated POS platform designed to manage all profit centers. With this new capability, it also provides a way for convenience store and truck stop locations to easily offer cardless fueling to support their fleet customers. 

The Comdata cardless system began processing live transactions in August. It automates the fueling process and data entry requirements with the use of a cost-effective RFID tag. Both the fleet and the merchant can reduce the risk of fraudulent transactions because the pump automatically shuts off when the truck pulls away, the company says.

In addition to the network of independent merchants that are installing the SmartQ cardless fueling technology, Love’s Travel Stops is near completion of enabling more than 235 travel stops to accept cardless transactions. Travel Centers of America (TA) is also in the process of equipping their locations to accept cardless transactions.
