Lidl rewards app to integrate EVC payments

Lidl is set to become the first UK supermarket to integrate payment of electric vehicle charging (EVC) within its rewards app.

Customers using Lidl’s electric vehicle charging points will soon be able to pay for their power via the Lidl Plus app as the supermarket looks to further develop its rewards scheme.

With the electric charging currently provided by Pod Point, the transition will start to take place this summer and is due to be completed across all of Lidl’s 370+ UK charge points by the end of the year.

Lidl has invested over £15 million into its EVC infrastructure since 2017 when it first started rolling out electric vehicle charging points across its store network.

Richard Taylor, Aldi chief development officer, said: “Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Lidl. I’m incredibly proud of the investment that we’ve made into our EV charging infrastructure over the years, going above and beyond the sector to give greater access to rapid charging.

“Since we opened our first store 30 years ago, Lidl has contributed to a shift in the way that people shop for their groceries, and this is the latest example of how we’re doing just that, so that we can further enhance our customers’ shopping experience.”  

Lidl said it will be informing customers via the Pod Point app as to when the switch over will start.

The supermarket currently has over 960 stores and 14 distribution centres in England, Scotland and Wales.
