PayPoint’s gifting opportunities
PAYMENT services firm PayPoint has expanded its Love2Shop gift card in partnership with the UK’s leading retailer groups.
The partnership includes One Stop, Henderson’s Retail, CJ Lang, Greens Retail and Scotmid Co-op, and gives consumers the opportunity to purchase physical gift cards in these stores for the first time ahead of the Christmas season, driving up retailer sales in the process.
The flexible gift cards can be spent in more than 90 leading UK retailers, including M&S, Argos and Boots, providing consumers a versatile gift card for the Christmas season.
This also follows on from the announcement that more than 1,000 members of The Fed have now joined up to be PayPoint Park Super Agents, helping their shoppers to make savings in time for the Christmas season.
Anthony Sappor, retail proposition and partnerships director at PayPoint, said: “This rollout represents an exciting time for Love2shop as we take the service to new consumers and retailers across the country.
“The UK gift card sector is valued in excess of £8billion per year, so Love2shop gift cards offer the chance to significantly boost our share of that market and expand our capabilities in the gifting, rewards and prepaid savings sectors.”
