CCV: Open Loop Payment is Making Its Way Into the EV-charging Stations

CCV’s solutions for EV-charging

The e-Mobility fair eMove360° in Munich has shown that there is a need for information in regards to open loop payments. Barrier-free cashless payment will soon be standard at every EV-charging station - the deciding factor is the new charging station regulation (Ladesäulenverordnung) in Germany.

It became official as of mid-September 2021 with the approval of the German Bundesrat. As of 1 July 2023, all newly installed EV-charging stations must be equipped with a payment terminal. This means that cashless payment with a debit or credit card as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay must be possible.

"The demand for open loop payment solutions has been steadily increasing since the announcement of the charging station regulation in Germany. We are always available to our partners and customers to answer questions about open loop payment processes and advise them on the right solution for their specific case.” says Maria Joukovitch, Head of Sales Mobility Solutions at CCV.

In detail, the German regulation for EV-charging stations states that at or in the immediate vicinity of every charging point:

  1. the Charging Point Operator enable the authentication required for the cashless payment transaction, and
  2. a contactless payment transaction must be possible at least by means of a major debit and credit card system (..).

It also states that the payment service provider is obliged to require strong customer authentication, i.e. in this case it must be possible to enter a PIN at the payment terminal.

"As an unattended terminal based on an Android operating system, the CCV IM30 meets all the requirements of the new charging station regulation and can also be used for PIN entry," explains Maria Joukovitch.
