Over 10,000 PayPoint One devices now live

Welwyn Garden City, 3rd September 2018:  PayPoint today announced that over 10,000 PayPoint One devices are now live across the UK with retailers throughout the convenience sector benefitting from the technology and improved experience it brings.

Launched in 2016, PayPoint One is the market-leading, all-in-one retail services platform, delivering the full benefit of advanced cloud-based EPoS technology, contactless card payments and PayPoint services, such as bill payments and Collect+. With three levels of functionality – Base, EPoS Core and EPoS Pro - PayPoint One offers everything that a modern convenience store needs, (see notes to editors for more detail). The 10,000 milestone means over half of PayPoint’s legacy yellow terminals have now converted to the new platform. The yellow terminal will be retired during 2019.

Lewis Alcraft, Commercial Director for PayPoint, said: “We’re delighted to have reached this significant milestone and that retailers continue to show a big appetite for adopting cutting-edge technology in their store. It’s great to see thousands of retailers benefitting from the enhanced experience and business insight that PayPoint One brings. Feedback has been extremely positive, and we’re committed to continually enhancing the platform with new features, including an iOS version of our free mobile app launching in the next few months.’.
