Merry pension day

PAYPOINT, the payments services provider, says consumers across the UK topped up their gas or electricity prepayment meters at Paypoint more than 3.8m times on the Christmas and New Year bank holidays in 2013/14.

Seamus Smith, managing director of Paypoint said the figures were further evidence, if any was needed, of the massive contribution that Britain’s retailers make to their local communities.
