Fast, Touchless, Cost-Effective Payment Comes to the FBO – Introducing new X-1PAY features

June 27, 2020

Palmetto Bay, FL – GMSTEK, LLC (“GMSTEK”), the developer and marketer of the industry leading X-1FBO suite of software and hardware products for General Aviation, today announced the launch of new features for X-1PAY.  For the first time, FBOs can accept touchless payments anywhere at the FBO and they can do it with lower cost X-1PAY Direct Debit Transactions.


FBO transactions always take longer than they should. The last thing pilots want to do at the end of a visit to an FBO is to stand in line waiting to pay as a CSR collects the information for an invoice. With X-1FBO and X-1PAY, invoices are instantaneous and accurate. With a pilot community that is getting younger the expectations around payment and the ease at which they can be performed continues to grow and the X-1FBO team is providing the solutions. And for FBOs, credit card processing costs continue to add up.  In a COVID-19 era, efficient and touchless payment are very attractive to FBO customers and FBOs alike.
