HCM CITY (Biz Hub)— Customers buying fuel at 16 PV Oil petrol stations in HCM City and two in Ha Noi can pay using Visa cards from Wednesday.

OceanBank has installed the card terminals at the stations.

"This is the first time you can pay with your Visa cards for your petrol in Viet Nam," Lorijon Bacchi, the card company's country manager for Viet Nam, Cambodia, and Laos, said.

Pham Thi Loi, deputy CEO of PV Oil, said: "With more and more people using Visa credit and debit cards to pay for everyday purchases, we saw an opportunity to improve our payment options in such a way that will bring more convenience to a large number of our customers."

Following a pilot phase, the card acceptance would be scaled up across the country, Loi said.— VNS
