PayPoint, the UK branded payments network, has announced that the full range of PayPoint services is now available throughout Martin McColl, the UKs largest chain of newsagents and convenience stores, following completion of the roll-out of its terminals to almost 1,300 locations.

 

The roll out into Martin's newsagents and McColl's convenience stores began in February and all stores were live on schedule by the end of June.

 

"The last piece of the jigsaw was to convert the Martin's and McColl's EPoS [electronic point-of-sale] systems taking mobile top-ups to PayPoint, and this was completed in mid-August," said Mike Igoe, PayPoint retail strategy director. "This was a substantial exercise to ensure that all the different elements, including signage, came together at the same time.

 

"We are delighted to be associated with Martin McColl and look forward to furthering our strong trading relationship as we introduce new, innovative services that help them to build their businesses further and provide an ever-growing range of services to their customers."

 

"We are always looking at ways we can improve the service we offer our customers," added Paul Taylor, general marketing manager at Martin McColl, "and making the full range of payments and other services from PayPoint, available to all our customers is another way to achieve that. PayPoint is the leading branded cash payments provider in the UK and is well recognised by our customers, so we are already seeing increased footfall as more customers see that we have PayPoint.

 

"We're particularly excited at the prospect of integrating PayPoint's new 'P-POD' system, which will allow us to offer bill payment facilities at every till and save us an enormous amount of time and effort with daily reconciliations. It's that sort of innovation that made it easy to choose to partner with PayPoint."
