Xpollens and Gireve simplify EV charging payment between operators

Gireve, the leading electric mobility platform, is enhancing its services for electric mobility operators. The company introduces a new payment feature through a partnership with Xpollens, the Banking-as-a-Service platform from Groupe BPCE.

Streamlining Invoicing Operations

Electric mobility operators collaborate with numerous infrastructure operators to offer their customers the most extensive charging network. These collaborations involve financial transactions, as infrastructure operators bill mobility operators for charging sessions on their networks. Gireve’s online marketplace offers services to simplify and streamline this aspect of their collaboration. Gireve positions itself as a trusted intermediary and facilitator of exchanges.

Xpollens: Technological Partner for Payment Flows

In 2024, Gireve will enhance its service suite by enabling B2B and B2B2C payment collections. It will complement its existing Clearing services, which include automatic CDR verification, pre-invoicing dispute resolution, and B2B invoicing. Indeed, Xpollens, a Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform, allows companies to integrate innovative payment functionalities directly into their systems via API.

What’s more, Gireve leverages a comprehensive range of Xpollens solutions, including account creation, transfers, and virtual IBANs. Xpollens provides charging station operators (CPOs) with real-time visibility into their incoming payment flows, enabling automatic reconciliation between invoices and payments. eMSPs (electric Mobility Service Providers) also benefit from a simplified process, allowing them to make a single payment for all their invoices through Gireve Connect Place.

This solution will be deployed by the end of 2024.

Jean Guillaume, CEO of Xpollens, said: ” This partnership between Xpollens and Gireve marks a major step forward in simplifying payments for electric mobility players. By integrating bank account, transfer and virtual IBANs directly into Gireve’s systems and within user reach, we enable the radical simplification of financial transactions with complete transparency in operations.”

Eric Plaquet, CEO of Gireve, said: “We’re pleased to partner with Xpollens. This will enable us to reinforce, both our pioneering role in the emobility ecosystem and our trusted third party role towards mobility players. Our goal is to offer a new range of products to support our customers in each step of the B2B charging process.”
