Your questions answered

How does Zap-Pay work?

Zap-Pay is an app-based payment system which uses a credit or debit card to pay for charging.

As easy as A,B,C. When you're at the charge point, select a connector, select a payment method and start charging - it really is that simple.

Do you need a subscription to use Zap-Pay?

No, there is no need for any membership or subscription to use Zap-Pay.  If you use Zap-Pay with the free account, you will have a more streamlined process, be able to save cards and view your full charging history.

There is also a guest option available which does not require registration.

How do you identify a Zap-Pay enabled charger?

All Zap-Pay enabled chargers are marked clearly within the Zap-Map app.  

You can filter for enabled points within the payment filter or the network filters.

How much does Zap-Pay cost?

Zap-Pay has a simple pay-as-you-go (PAYG) price structure which will be set at the same or similar level to the charging networks’ standard PAYG price. Zap-Map reserves the right to charge a small transaction fee per session to the customer.  This will be set at 0.0p for the foreseeable future.

The tariff being levied to the customer will be absolutely transparent ahead of any charging session.
