PayPoint announces agreement with Booker


12 April 2017, Welwyn Garden City

PayPoint is pleased to announce an agreement with Booker to provide retailers with back office links for its PayPoint One platform. This new agreement means retailers who shop with Booker and have a PayPoint One system will be able to benefit from automatic product file downloads to maintain prices and descriptions, place orders, print shelf edge labels and receive accurate promotion pricing. These improvements will help retailers operate a more efficient business and free up their time to run their store.

PayPoint One is the market-leading, all-in- one retail services platform that delivers EPoS, contactless card payments and PayPoint services – such as bill payments and Collect+ - to retailers. It enables retailers to operate their businesses more efficiently and offer everything a modern convenience store needs across three levels of functionality - Base, EPoS Core and EPoS Pro (see notes to editors for more detail). It is now live in over 8,000 stores across the UK, meaning nearly half of PayPoint’s legacy yellow terminals have converted to the new platform since its launch only 18 months ago.

EPoS Pro launched last November alongside the introduction of the PayPoint One Mobile App, which uniquely equips retailers with their ‘store in their pocket’ – providing easy, intuitive access to sales and allowing them to manage prices and promotions, and book in stock from any location and at any time.

Lewis Alcraft, Commercial Director of PayPoint, commented, “We’re delighted that thousands of retailers that shop with Booker are now benefitting from this new deal which will help them run a more efficient business. Receiving automatic downloads direct to their system really will free up their time so they can concentrate on running their business with the improved technology and experience that PayPoint One delivers. Feedback has been positive and we’re particularly happy that our unique Mobile App is helping retailers transform the way that they manage their stores

“Underlining our commitment to continually evolve the platform, the next 12 months will see the launch of news management via PaperRound, an iOS version of the mobile app, multisite management for retailers with more than one store, as well as several improvements driven directly from retailer feedback.”
