Monta adds Crane Payment Innovations (CPI) payment terminals to their list of fully supported contactless payment terminals –

19 MARCH 2024, LONDON: EV charge point management platform, Monta, is now fully integrated with contactless payment terminal provider, CPI, allowing EV drivers to pay for their public charging session with just the tap of a contactless device, or payment card.

The UK Public Charging Regulations which came into effect on 24 November 2023, mean that charge point operators (CPOs) must now offer a contactless payment option on charge points over 8kW. 

This is a welcomed regulation, which endeavours to level up the charging experience for all in the lead-up to the 2035 ban on ICE vehicles. 

EV drivers using a charge point with Monta’s software are now guaranteed to have the choice between a contactless payment method, as well as the Monta app. 

Through the addition of CPI to their list of supported contactless payment terminals, Monta enables greater choice and flexibility for their business customers – which includes Charge Point Operators (CPOs), who are responsible for adhering to these new regulations. 

Commenting on the integration, Alok Dubey, Regional Director, Strategic Sales – West at Monta, said, “To ensure a smooth transition to EVs, not only must the charging infrastructure be up to scratch in all parts of the country, but public charging must be simple and seamless – which includes drivers having a choice in the way they pay for sessions. In adding CPI to our portfolio of supported terminals, our business customers now have greater choice when selecting the terminal to fit, and subsequently facilitate this payment method.”

Patrick Richards, Senior Product Manager at Crane Innovations, said “The partnership between Crane Payment Innovations and Monta shows how industry collaboration can elevate EV charging for everyone involved, providing both charge point operators and consumers with unmatched convenience and reliability.
