The East of England Co-operative Society, which represents 121 Co-op stores across the region, has announced the renewal of its partnership with PayPoint.
The extension means that PayPoint’s services will continue to be offered in Co-op stores across Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex, ensuring customers can continue to make energy top ups and redeem emergency CashOut vouchers.
These CashOut payments and energy credit vouchers are critical for many customers during the current climate and a total of over 150,000 vouchers have been generated to be processed across all PayPoint retailers. This has helped provide customers access to a total value of £6.35m funds, during the past 30 days.
Danny Vant, client services director at PayPoint, said: “The renewal of our partnership with the East of England Co-op means that customers in the region can continue to access the services they rely on. PayPoint is committed to transforming convenience and ensuring everybody, including people in rural areas, can visit their local Co-op to access services including bill payments, mobile phone top-ups and vouchers.”
Sean McLaughlin, head of commercial retail at the East of England Co-op, said: “We’re delighted to extend our partnership with PayPoint. We’re aware that this is a concerning time for our customers, but with the renewal of our extension with PayPoint, we can continue to offer our communities services they can rely on.”
