Vehicle-related commerce is a growing topic of major interest with drivers, OEMs, Tier 1, payment companies, and merchants alike. Development teams from payment technology service providers, merchants, OEMs, and Tier 1s need to engage and collaborate to enable a safe and secure transaction experience for the end customer (the driver).

The focus is to provide a foundation of knowledge and access to the established ecosystems of automotive, payments, and retail.

  1. Provide a forum for automotive, payments, and retail to understand and develop requirements to enable commerce in the vehicle in a convenient and safe manner in the vehicle.
  2. Define and establish potential projects that mutually benefit and advance the acceptance of in-vehicle payment applications.
  3. Identify and define projects that would advance the standardization of specifications and requirements for in-vehicle payments for all interested industries.
  4. Facilitate and provide a unified industry representation of automaker needs with payment regulatory bodies
