Customers of SC Vital in Romania can now pay their bills at PayPoint Romania
Bucharest, 11 March 2013 – SC VITAL SA customers in Maramures can now pay their water and sanitation bills at 145 PayPoint terminals located in local stores all over the county, following an agreement between PayPoint Romania, the main retail-based cash and mobile payment operator and SC VITAL SA, a supplier of water systems and sanitation in Maramures County.
Payment through PayPoint is safe, simple and comfortable: the customer simply takes the bill to the nearest store with a PayPoint terminal. The shop assistant scans the barcode on the bill, the customer hands over the value of the bill in cash and receives a receipt with details of the transaction on it (date, amount, location, service provider’s name, etc). The operation lasts for only few moments, considerably reducing the time spent paying the bill. The service is free of charge, with no fees for consumers.
In the municipality of Baia Mare, PayPoint has more than 60 terminals located in minimarkets, supermarkets and neighbourhood stores with extended opening hours. PayPoint terminals can also be found in villages and towns in Maramures County, making it simpler for their residents to pay their bills. Customers can find the nearest PayPoint store online at www.paypoint.com/romania, where they simply enter the names of the town and street where they live in the “Agent Locator”, and the map will show the nearest PayPoint terminals. In this way, people in Maramures can know at any moment which is the closest store where they can pay their bills.
“In Maramures County, people are already making around 25,000 transactions a month at PayPoint, and we are seeing an increasing number of people choosing to pay their bills quickly and comfortably at the same time they are doing their daily shopping. This confirms the trust that people in Maramures have in our system. We are making every effort to increase the number of terminals in the county, as well as extending the range of services available on PayPoint terminals,” said Mugur Dogariu, Managing Director PayPoint Romania.
Commenting on the agreement with PayPoint, Geza Gasparik, General Manager of SC VITAL SA, said: “Our customers’ satisfaction and comfort are very important for us and the partnership with PayPoint Romania successfully meets these needs. Besides providing high quality services, we also want to shorten the time people in Maramures spend paying bills, so being able to pay them in local neighbourhood stores safely and quickly is definitely a great advantage for them.”
