ORLEN Germany integrates the Girocard as a means of payment with the Tankstar app


With the integration of the Sparkasse Girocard, Tankstar app users at ORLEN and star petrol stations now have an additional payment option at their disposal. The Girocard in combination with Apple Wallet expands the existing payment functions. The updated version of the app also promises to be more user-friendly thanks to a customisable dashboard. 

Fast, convenient and secure payment directly at the pump: This is possible at ORLEN and star petrol stations with the company's own Tankstar app. The further expansion and integration of the Sparkasse Girocard now offers an even larger customer segment the possibility of paying directly at the pump.

‘After only a few weeks, we are already seeing a high percentage of transactions via the Sparkasse Girocard in the Tankstar app. This shows once again how important a balanced payment mix is for the customer and ultimately for acquiring new customers’, says Benedikt Brandi, Director of E-Mobility & Business Development at ORLEN Deutschland.

The updated version of the app is also more user-friendly thanks to the introduction of its customisable dashboard. Users can arrange widgets to have the most important functions available at a glance. In addition, the petrol station finder with the nearest ORLEN or star petrol stations is displayed directly on the home screen.

The carwash offering is also available through the app and all stations of the ORLEN Deutschland network with car wash facilities have been integrated. If you want to know where the nearest ORLEN or star petrol station offering car washes is located, you can use the improved filter function, which can also be used to search for AdBlue pumps, DHL packing stations or ATMs.
