Allstar Business Solutions and Zapmap worked together to create a market-leading digital payment solution for fleet drivers.
With fleets fast transitioning to electric vehicles, a longstanding challenge for fleet drivers with an EV has been to locate charge points that accept their company’s payment card. Allstar wanted to dramatically simplify this charging experience, helping fleets to find charge points that accept its Allstar card, plan routes and pay digitally for charging.
With this in mind, Allstar chose to work with Zapmap to create an end-to-end digital solution for EV fleet drivers, enabling its customers to search, plan and pay for charging when out and about.
“Partnering with Zapmap has been a key strategic move for Allstar, allowing us to offer our customers a simplified, seamless in-app experience when charging on the road.”

As a result, drivers can now download the Zapmap app and add their Allstar Electric card to activate Allstar features, enabling them to pay for EV charging at participating sites on the Allstar network via Zap-Pay. A single-app payment system, Zap-Pay avoids the hassle of using multiple payment methods across different networks.
With Allstar customers also benefiting from enhanced features in the app, free of charge, the solution is widely used by fleet drivers across the country.
“Partnering with Zapmap has been a key strategic move for Allstar, allowing us to offer our customers a simplified, seamless in-app experience when charging on the road,” said Tom Rowlands, MD of Global EV Solutions at Allstar Business Solutions.
“Together we are able to support businesses through every step of their EV charging journey, whether that’s making it easier to search for a charging location, offering route planning and live updates on the status of charging points, or easing the payment process.
“By increasing convenience for our customers and simplifying charging in this way, we are helping to remove some of the biggest barriers to entry for potential EV fleets.”
Ultimately, Allstar’s partnership with Zapmap has helped electric fleets to plan longer electric journeys and streamline payment for EV charging on the road.
