Targoviste Dambovita Water Company customers can now pay their bills through PayPoint Romania
Bucharest, 4 March 2013 – PayPoint Romania, the main retail-based cash and mobile payment operator in Romania, and The Targoviste Dambovita Water Company, a regional operator of water systems and sanitation in Dambovita County, have signed an agreement that enables people in Dambovita to pay their Targoviste Dambovita Water Company bills at more than 200 local shops throughout the county that have PayPoint terminals.
Payment at PayPoint is simple, safe 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.)
In the municipality of Targoviste, PayPoint services are available at 54 minimarkets, supermarkets and neighbourhood stores with extended opening hours. There are also shops with PayPoint terminals in villages and towns in Dambovita 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.
“We are very pleased with the results we’ve already seen in Dambovita County and we are convinced that our services will be used even more frequently from now on. Around 84,000 bills are paid each month through PayPoint in Dambovita, which shows the trust that people have in our system and their desire to have a safe, quick and comfortable way of paying their bills. We are delighted to be working in partnership with The Targoviste Dambovita Water Company so that people in Dambovita are now able to pay their water bills in PayPoint stores at the same time they are making other payments,” said Mugur Dogariu, Managing Director PayPoint Romania.
Commenting on the agreement with PayPoint, Radu Vasilescu, general manager of The Targoviste Dambovita Water Company, said: “Any partnership we enter into is for the benefit of our customers. This is also true when it came to working with PayPoint – we thought about the busy lives our customers lead and wanted to make it possible for them to pay their bills securely and quickly in the same store where they shop every day.
Apart from bills issued by The Targoviste Dambovita Water Company, people living in Dambovita can also pay their bills for gas, electricity, mobile phones, internet and cable; they can also pay instalments for some financial services, top up the credit on their mobile phone and even, in selected PayPoint stores, money transfers within Romania and internationally.
The PayPoint network currently numbers more than 7,000 local shops all over the country, while the company has 56 clients in the telecommunications field, utilities and financial services. The list of services and PayPoint partners is available on the company’s website, www.paypoint.com/romania.
