Taking into account the current situation, we note the high demand for contactless payment for fuel and the potential for the development of other remote services. Since October 1, 2020, we have integrated the Family Team and BP Club loyalty programs into the Yandex.Fuel mobile service. Now the client, paying for fuel in the application, can link his loyalty card and receive points for each remote refuelling.
