Hyundai’s In-Car Payments Plans and other Digital Transactions News briefs from 6/8/18

  • The Korean automaker Hyundai has made agreements to let drivers pay through the car’s infotainment system for gas at Chevron or Texaco, meals from Applebee’s To Go, and parking through ParkWhiz. Other automakers working on similar payment systems include Ford for parking and vehicle service and Chevrolet and Jaguar for gas at Shell stations.
  • Payment-automation vendor AvidXchange announced an agreement in which it will provide services to businesses that are treasury clients of HomeTrust Bank.
  • Delaware bettors wagered a total of $322,135 on sports bets at the state’s three casinos on Tuesday, the first day the state permitted across-the-board and single-game sports betting. Delaware became the first state to act in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling in May striking down a federal law that banned most states from authorizing sports betting. Before Tuesday, Delaware allowed only parlay-card betting on National Football League games. These bets totaled approximately $48 million last year, for a daily rate of $131,500.
  • PayPal Holdings Inc. is sponsoring a “PayPal Cash ‘n Back” free event Saturday in Manhattan’s trendy SoHo neighborhood that will feature pop-up art and promote the PayPal Cashback Mastercard issued by Synchrony Bank.
