The Retailer Proposition

Why becoming a PayPoint agent can help make your business more successful.

  1. By being a PayPoint agent, you provide a valuable service to your local community which helps to differentiate your store offering from that of other shops in the area.  When you become a PayPoint agent, your customers can pay a wide range of essential household bills, including Electric Ireland, Eircom, Bord Gáis, Airtricity and Vodafone bills, as well as for local authorities such as  Wexford, Laois and Meath County Councils, Dublin City Council and household waste bills to Panda Waste, conveniently in their local convenience store. They can also top up their mobile phones with Vodafone, O2, Meteor, H3G, Lyca and Tesco Mobile.  We also offer a range of international and rechargeable calling cards such as Swiftcall, First National, IDT - Unity, Lime and Super cards.  Your customers can purchase e-money vouchers which enable people to make internet payments on various websites through Ukash and Paysafecard vouchers purchased on the PayPoint terminal. 
     
  2. Stores with PayPoint terminals attract additional payment customer footfall, enjoy greater customer loyalty, and benefit from increased sales and higher basket spends. Independent research* in the UK shows that

    -   90% of consumers say convenience was the main reason for using PayPoint
    -   87% of retailers believe that PayPoint is good or very good for attracting footfall into their store.
    -   the average utility bill payment shopper visits the shop more frequently and spends more on each visit than the average convenience shopper, amounting to an additional 55% more spent per week (excluding the service payment)
