Welwyn Garden City, 18 March 2014: PayPoint has announced that Skype vouchers are now available from PayPoint shops throughout the UK to users of the market leading communications and messaging service.
By making its vouchers available at more than 26,500 shops in the PayPoint network, Skype is making itself even more accessible to those who rely on the service to stay connected with family and friends overseas, and for those who may not be able to pay for Skype’s services using traditional online methods.
Skype’s new calling rates are extremely attractive to pay-as-you-go customers, starting from as little as 0.6p/minute*, including:
Said Andrew Goddard, Retail Director at PayPoint UK & Ireland: “Skype’s increasing popularity means that demand is growing among people who don’t necessarily have access to bank accounts or plastic cards, which is why the PayPoint network is an obvious choice for Skype to extend its service to these customers.
“This is another example of how we are consistently concentrating our efforts on signing up new products and services that broaden the range of people using PayPoint services and generate additional footfall and sales for our retailers. The size and quality of the PayPoint network make it uniquely attractive to consumer focused organisations wanting to provide their customers with the widest possible access to their products and services.”
