PayPoint Romania services are now available in all PROFI stores in Romania

Timisoara, Romania, 22 May 2012. Shoppers at PROFI stores will be able to pay their bills and recharge their mobile phones at PayPoint from the end of May, following an agreement to install PayPoint payment terminals in all PROFI stores.

PayPoint offers a convenient, simple and fast way for household bill payments, including gas, electricity, financial services and telecoms, and electronic top-ups, at stores throughout  the country. With their long opening hours (Monday- Saturday: 07.00-22.00, Sunday: 08.00-20.00), customers will find bill payment in PROFI stores even more convenient. Every payment at PayPoint is free of charge and customers do not have to buy other products in the store. They simply hand the bill to the PROFI retailer along with the payment in cash and the retailer does the rest. The customer receives a receipt for every payment made.

PROFI Rom Food currently runs 118 neighbourhood stores in 72 locations throughout Romania, making it one of the top four modern food retail chains in Romania.

“Apart from the usual quality products, special promotions and good prices, PROFI now offers its customers a free service for managing their household finances quickly  and with a minimum of effort,” said PROFI Rom Food CEO Pawel Musial.

“The partnership with PROFI Rom Food further strengthens our national presence and extend PayPoint’s bill payment and electronic top-up services throughout the country. Some of the 118 PROFI stores are situated in localities where consumers do not have many modern commercial facilities or many other bill payment alternatives. With their extended working hours, consumers  now have the benefit of going to their local PROFI store topay their household bills free and in  comfortable surroundings while doing their daily shopping,” said Mugur Dogariu, Managing Director, PayPoint România.
