Romanian drivers can now pay for their road tax at PayPoint
Bucharest, 16 April 2014 - Drivers in Romania are now able to pay their Road Tax through PayPoint's nationwide network of multi-functional payment terminals, following a new agreement between PayPoint Romania, the leading retail-based cash and mobile payment operator in Romania, and Scala Assistance, the company which is officially authorised to collect Road Tax.
In order to pay their Road Tax, customers go into the nearest participating PayPoint store and provide the retailer with the information required to register that the Road Tax has been paid. The process is quick and secure: once the retailer has recorded the data on the terminal, the customer pays, in cash, and receives a receipt with all the necessary details (date, amount, location, Road Tax registration number, etc).
This new service is yet another example of PayPoint's successful strategy of delivering innovative new products and services to an ever-growing number of consumers.
“The launch of this service, which is unusual in a retail environment, represents an important step by PayPoint in introducing new business lines and creating a highly diverse client portfolio. We provide customers with an impressive network of payment points, and are now adding the convenience of paying their Road Tax quickly and securely in neighbourhood stores, which have the added benefit of extended opening hours. We are delighted with this partnership with Scala Assistance, which consolidates our position as the leading payments specialist in Romania,” declared Mugur Dogariu, Managing Director of PayPoint Romania.
“Romania has one of the largest road networks in Europe and we wanted to partner with a company that would provide us with the coverage that would match it. PayPoint’s solution, with its vast network of terminals throughout the country, offers our customers the ability to pay for their Road Tax in a quick, safe way, before heading out on the road. We are pleased to be working with PayPoint and are confident it will be a successful partnership,” added a spokesperson from Scala Assistance.
