Chase is adding two new merchants to their Chase Pay line up – airport restaurateur HMSHost and Parkmobile. With these new additions, people will be able to pay for food and drinks at a variety of travel venues located at airports, on the road and elsewhere with Chase Pay, including restaurants like 1897 Market, Beaudevin Wine Bar, and Wicker Park Seafood & Sushi, while paying for parking in cities across the U.S. with Parkmobile.
Chase Pay sees these new partnerships as a way to give customers access to more ways to use the app when they are traveling. "We know how valuable our customers' time is when on the road for work or play" said Jennifer Roberts, president of Strategic Alliances and Loyalty at Chase, who leads the Chase Pay team. "We are excited that these new partnerships will make our customers' travel that much easier."
The new partners
By the end of 2017 people eating out or catching a few drinks at HMSHost locations while on vacation or a business trip will be able to pay with Chase Pay, with the full rollout being completed by the end of the year.
In the second quarter transactions taken at HMSHost locations will start being processed via Chase's closed-loop ChaseNet platform, creating a point-to-point encrypted process that includes creating a token for all transaction so payment card information is not shared.
HMSHost runs just about 2,000 restaurant locations located in over 80 airports in North American airports, as well as 99 motorway service centers. In addition, they have partnered up with 300 brands popular with travelers.
When it comes to parking people will be able to pay directly from their phone with Chase Pay using Parkmobile. This services let people park and pay in a wide range of cities in the U.S, as well as reserving a parking spot at arenas and concert venues. People can get multiple vehicles accounts.
The Chase Pay app is available via the App Store or Google Play. More information is available on the Chase Pay website.
