The multi-year deal extends the existing partnership to include both cash and digital payments
Welwyn Garden City, 6th February 2020: PayPoint and Shell Energy Retail today announced an extension to their partnership, which means Shell Energy Retail customers can benefit from the convenience of making payments at 28,000 PayPoint retailers across the country, as well as online or via a mobile app.
Shell Energy Retail provides 100% renewable electricity as well as gas and broadband to hundreds of thousands of homes across Britain. Through the partnership, their customers can continue to top up at stores within PayPoint’s extensive retail network. With over 99% of the UK population living within a mile of a PayPoint store, energy payments have never been easier.
The renewed arrangement also provides more choice to Shell Energy Retail customers by giving them access to PayPoint’s omni channel payment solution, MultiPay, which enables smart meter top ups remotely via the Shell Energy app or website.
Lewis Alcraft, Chief Commercial Officer for PayPoint, commented: “Shell Energy Retail is a leading provider of renewable energy and we are thrilled to extend our partnership with them into digital payments to the benefit of customers across the UK.”
Ed Kamm, Chief Commercial Officer at Shell Energy, comments: “Our partnership with PayPoint means that our customers can make their energy payments easily; through mobile and online top ups or at the 28,000 PayPoint outlets in the UK.”
