Re: WEX / Shell Fleet Small Business **Approval

Congrats on the approval! 

I was always leery about WEX, but it looks like you found a decent unicorn. I'm assuming this one is the non-network (V/MC) card only accepted at Shell locations?  Or, is it accepted at all fuel service stations like BP, Marathon, Loves, Pilot?

Thanks @FinStar !

It is a non-network (V/MC) and has driver PIN security.

I am not sure of it working outside of Shell/Jiffy Lube?.

 

A liitle confusing on the station locator. I will report back, once I test it at 76, Chevron and Cardlock Fuel (CFN).

You're welcome.

 

I had read about the no-AF version, so I was definitely curious, especially for non-Shell service stations. 

 

Let us know!

Congrats Smarty pants!

 

The difference seen below is it is NOT accepted at 95% US fueling station, so just like you stated Shell and Jiffy Lube.  (link for your convience)

@GApeachy, Thanks for clarification, as I was a bit confused on acceptance. (looks like I will edit the original post)

For now this will work fine, plenty of Shell stations in the bay area.

Re: WEX / Shell Fleet Small Business **Approval

@M_Smart007 You didn't state anything incorrect.  Between all of their cards (blanket stmt) it is 95%.   

Then you list your cards' benefits...showing the 13k+ 

 

Maybe that's why the store locator is iffy for you...more than one type card and only one store locator.  eg. Navigator

Re: WEX / Shell Fleet Small Business **Approval

This required a PG.  The application could not be submitted without one.  The PG is required before the page will even process the application.

Do you have a link for the application you completed?

hi @abutterflydream ,

I used this link to apply;

 

  https://www.wexinc.com/solutions/fleet-cards/select/shell-small-business-card/

Although it says something to the effect of "personal guaranty" My personal credit report was not pulled,

as I have/had all (3) credit bureau's "LOCKED" at time of application. So they had NO/ZERO access to my personal credit.

 I just checked to be 100% certain.  All (3) reports, Locked and (0) inquiries.

 

I do not believe that "WEX" reports to personal credit, as far as what I have read (someone please correct me, if I am wrong?)

 

Just want to add YEMV

 

edited to correct bad URL link.

Link still broken🤣

 

 

If you would have filled out the pg it states that it then would do a personal credit check. 

I guess if someone had stellar credit and the biz didn't then it might help...the verbiage was to that affect and might would give a higher sl if really, really needed to keep vehicles in motion.
