Zap-Pay is a service provided by Next Green Car Ltd that allows users of Zap-Map Sites and Services to pay for, and gain access to, electric vehicle charging services on participating charging providers (or branded networks). All charging devices on participating providers (or branded networks) which accept Zap-Pay are clearly marked within the Zap-Map app (and other Zap-Map mapping products) within the information provided about each charging device.
The payment system operates using instant payments on a pay-as-you-go basis and all payments are made through our payment processor Adyen (https://www.adyen.com). At present, no subscription services are offered by Zap-Pay. At no time does Zap-Map store user’s card details which are all handled by the payment processor Adyen, which is fully compliant with all aspects of the Payment Card Industry regulations.

Each charging session and payment transaction is made on a per-use basis. Please note that all payments made through Zap-Pay are pre-authorised with a £10 charge to validate the card and that funds are available in the user’s account. The pre-authorisation amount may show on your account before the final amount is settled. Once the charging process has completed successfully, the final amount is then charged to the user’s card and the pre-charge refunded.
