PayPoint rolls out Amazon Hub Counter service into retail network
Welwyn Garden City, 30 August 2019: PayPoint today announces its participation in Amazon Hub Counter – a network of pick up points that allows customers to collect their Amazon orders in-store.
Following successful trials, Amazon Hub Counter goes live in over 500 stores today and will be rolled out in thousands of shops across the UK, combining online shopping with the convenience of accessing PayPoint’s wide network of retailers.
Amazon Hub Counter is available on tens of millions of items sold on Amazon.co.uk. The service adds more choice and convenience for online shoppers by giving them the flexibility to pick up their parcels within 14 days from their chosen convenience store or high-street shop.
The Counter launched in the UK, Italy and the U.S. earlier this year and has been positively received, driving strong customer engagement and additional foot traffic for partners.
Assunta Keenan, Director of Amazon Hub in Europe, said: “We’re excited to be working with PayPoint on expanding the Counter service in the UK. This partnership allows us to offer even more choice and flexibility to Amazon customers while supporting small businesses around the country.”
Patrick Headon, CEO for PayPoint, commented: “We’re delighted to partner with Amazon to allow our retailers to offer parcel services to even more customers. Online shopping is only continuing to grow in popularity, and retailers who offer parcel collection can tap into that by introducing new customers to their stores and increasing sales.”
