Mer network access
Access to the Mer network is made via the app, web portal, RFID card and contactless payment (on some chargers). Payment is taken from a credit or debit card linked to the customer’s account (monthly billing for registered customers) – or the specified bank card for guest users – after the charging session is complete.
