Adding kiosks in Chicago, Florida, SoCal

FAIRFAX, Va. -- ExxonMobil said that it is expanding its rollout of ewiz financial services kiosks to On the Run convenience stores in Chicago, South and West Florida and Southern California.

The expansion is expected to continue in additional markets in 2006. The expansion follows successful market tests of the electronic payment system at On the Run and Tigermarket c-stores in Memphis, Nashville and Charlotte.

The kiosks were developed for ExxonMobil by Info Touch Technologies Corp. of Burnaby, B.C., Canada. They accept cash, [image-nocss] credit and debit as payment for the service provided. Soon, they will also be able to accept checks as payment, the companies said.

ewiz offers customers a convenient way to pay wireless, utility and cable bills, transact financial services such as money orders, money transfers and check cashing, and purchase prepaid telecommunications products such as wireless top up, phone cards, ring tones and gift cards, said Michael Gore, manager of U.S. convenience retailing for ExxonMobil Fuels Marketing, Fairfax, Va.

With ewiz, customers need not experience long waits in line to pay bills or get telecommunications services, said David Taylor, category manager of financial services for ExxonMobil Fuels Marketing. All they have to do is navigate the user-friendly touchscreen and be on their way. And the kiosks are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
