Leading fuel card provider WEX Europe Services, owner of the Esso Card portfolio, announced the launch of its new prepay fuel card – Esso Card Prepay – available to Italian businesses for use in Italy. Allowing customers to pre-load the card with funds instead of using a credit line, Esso Card Prepay has all the benefits of a fuel card without requiring a credit check.

Esso Card Prepay customers will enjoy special offers in Supreme fuels purchased at site and compliant electronic invoices, that allow fleet managers to reduce administrative burden and take control of their business’ fuel spend. Businesses can easily find fuel stations that accept Esso Card Prepay with e-route, a fuel station finder tool, enabling fleets to improve both route and fuel efficiency. Fleets have the added bonus of reducing administration time from processing numerous fuel receipts or reviewing credit card statements.

“With the introduction of the Budget Law, fuel cards became crucial for all businesses across the country, so we needed to develop a solution that met the needs of our customers no matter the size of their business or credit history”, said Luca Menicocci, Head of Sales Italy at WEX Europe Services.

Esso Card Prepay is compliant with the European Directive 2014/55/​​EU, which states that all businesses must show an electronic trail for payments using a credit, debit or pre-paid card. With Esso Card Prepay, a fully compliant invoice is synchronised to the Revenue Agency portal, ensuring that fleet managers automatically comply with the necessary regulatory requirements.
