PayPoint partners with Anglian Water for more convenient payments

Welwyn Garden City, 27 November 2018: PayPoint’s latest partnership with Anglian Water gives over six million domestic customers more choice and convenience when paying their bills.


Anglian Water is the largest water and water recycling company in England and Wales by geographic area. The huge region stretches from the Humber north of Grimsby, to the Thames estuary and from Buckinghamshire to Lowestoft on the east coast. The agreement gives millions of Anglian Water customers the flexibility to pay their bills in cash at 4,500 stores in the region or over 28,000 stores across the UK through a network larger than all banks, post offices and supermarkets combined.


The deal with Anglian Water provides customers with yet another reason to visit a local PayPoint store where they can already pay their utility bills, top up their Amazon account, pick up a parcel and do their shopping all in one place. 


Spencer Hough, Head of Billing and Collections at Anglian Water said “We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to pay their water bill.  Introducing PayPoint will considerably increase the number of available payment outlets and we’re really pleased that this will give our customers more choice and convenience about where to pay their bill”


Lewis Alcraft, Commercial Director at PayPoint, said: “The partnership with Anglian Water is significant and provides convenience to the millions of customers spread across the Anglian region.  With 99% of the UK population living within one mile of a PayPoint store in urban and five miles in rural areas, our network of stores is a convenient solution; no matter where they are. The agreement further underlines the significant role convenience retailers continue to play in providing vital services to their local communities.”
