Q8 offers a new way of topping up digital wallets to their retail customers and also business customers in the future. Fuel payments are made by direct debit from a bank account, in order to widen the target audience to those who do not have a credit card or who do not want to drain their credit limit.

In fact, payment represents a distinctive factor for Q8 which, with the introduction of this new feature, enriches the experience at the petrol station, responding to the needs of increasingly sophisticated consumers.

"[...] Q8 has managed to reap the benefits of innovation to enrich and enhance the customer experience, demonstrating openness and attention to their customers. We are thrilled that they chose Fabrick, as this partnership fully embodies our philosophy of openness and collaboration to bring the benefits of the technological and financial revolution to the general public."
