27 May, Welwyn Garden City/Dundee: PayPoint and Snappy Shopper, the fast-growing home delivery app, have today announced a new partnership. Launching in July, the tie-up will see PayPoint One retailer partners given access to the Snappy Shopper platform and the ability to offer customers a convenient home delivery and click and collect option.
Dundee-based Snappy Shopper launched in 2017 and has grown rapidly in the past 18 months. The company’s research shows that participating retailers often see substantial returns, with the average in-app basket spend around 3.5 times higher than that in-store.
The PayPoint One system will integrate directly with the Snappy Shopper platform, meaning there is no need for additional kit or technology for retailers that sign up. Once they pass a simple suitability check, designed to ensure that a store has the potential to operate a delivery service profitably, they will benefit from a fast set-up process, customer service support seven days a week, and wide-reaching marketing support.
Nick Wiles, Chief Executive of PayPoint, said: “The pandemic has accelerated two key trends in retail: support for local retailers and demand for fast, convenient fulfilment. Our partnership with Snappy Shopper caters to both of these, meaning we’re not only future-proofing our own business but we’re helping our PayPoint One customers to do the same. This collaboration is a firm statement of our commitment to the convenience retail sector.”
Mark Steven, COO of Snappy Group, added: “We’re excited to be partnering with PayPoint, to continue our mission to give more communities on demand access to the products of local businesses. Integrating the Snappy Shopper platform with PayPoint’s EPoS makes it considerably more efficient for retailers to fulfil their home delivery orders with us and increases the potential revenue uplift. Our platform is based on genuine partnership and mutual benefit, and we are pleased that, together with PayPoint, we can equip retailers with an affordable and high performing tech solution to compete in the fast-changing home delivery market.”

About Snappy Shopper
Launched in Dundee in December 2017, Snappy Shopper is an online app that connects communities with their local businesses. Via the app consumers can order groceries from their local convenience store and have them delivered by the store’s own drivers to their homes in as little as 30 minutes. No longer solely reliant on footfall, this allows retailers to extend their customer base and service, as well as compete in this fast-growing home delivery market. This not only caters to the trend for top up shopping but also an increasing desire by consumers to access and support local enterprises. Retailers can increase revenues significantly with average basket spend more than trebling online, while maintaining their in-store pricing. The Company currently serves retailers from most major players and has partnership agreements with several regional Co-op’s, Nisa and SPAR.
Snappy Shopper is part of the Snappy Group, which is formed of two businesses, Snappy Shopper Ltd and Hungrrr Ltd, operating in the growing UK convenience grocery sector and the hospitality sector respectively. Hungrrr, launched in 2016, offers the hospitality sector, including restaurants, hotels and stadia, affordable solutions to take online orders, whether that is ordering drinks to a table in a pub, breakfast to a hotel room or pre-ordering food at a major sporting event. The platform’s white label functionality and branding can be tailored to each client which has proven attractive to businesses such as Hilton, BrewDog and Subway.
The Group has 1400+ business partners today with more than 700,000 consumers using the platform across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and annualised Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) approaching £100m for the year ended March 2021.
