7-Eleven testing financial services in stores

The retailer will add terminals to 3,000 of its Speedway locations and test services like cryptocurrency purchases with ATM solution provider FCTI

As convenience stores and retailers increasingly seek ways to draw more people past the pumps, banking features at these 7-Eleven and Speedway stores could make them more of a destination. After the test period for the new financial services is complete, the companies will decide which of these services will get a wider rollout. 

The expanded partnership, building on an agreement that began in 2015, will increase the number of 7-Eleven locations with FCTI ATMs from 8,600 to 11,600 by the end of 2025.

This is the latest technology update for Speedway, after 7-Eleven announced in January that it would be incorporating its proprietary store and fuel point-of-sale system at those sites.

Irving, Texas-based 7-Eleven operates, franchises and/or licenses more than 13,000 convenience stores in the U.S. and Canada.
