In-Car Parking Payment Apps

EasyPark and Parkopedia Debuted a New In-car Payment App for Mercedes

— February 6, 2020 — Autos
EasyPark and Parkopedia recently joined forces to launch a new car parking solution dubbed the 'EasyPark App' -- an in-car payment app. The user-friendly app allows drivers to automatically start their parking and pay the charges through their MercedesPay account.

The app is self-intuitive. After a driver has parked in a paid on-street parking zone, the app can detect the car and payment details will appear on the screen. The drive only has to confirm the parking and will receive an electronically generated transaction receipt after they have left the parking zone. Not only does this help the driver save time, but also money as the driver will pay for the exact amount of time they have been parked.
