Utilita renews exclusive partnership with PayPoint

PayPoint will continue to offer Utilita energy payments through its extensive retail network


Welwyn Garden City, 29 August 2019: Utilita and PayPoint are delighted to announce the extension of  their partnership with a new multi-year agreement, allowing over 650,000 Utilita customers to top-up their smart meters through PayPoint’s network of 28,000 retail partners. 


PayPoint has been providing Utilita customers with energy top-ups for over a decade, and the extension of the partnership will lead many tens of millions of transactions being processed via its retail network over the contract period. Rising energy brand Utilita is one of the UK’s fastest-growing independent energy suppliers. 


Lewis Alcraft, Chief Commercial Officer, PayPoint, commented: “Utilita is going from strength to strength, so it is really positive news for our retail network and Utilita’s customers alike that a new partnership has been struck. This new agreement is testament to the quality and convenience the PayPoint retail network offers and the broader service proposition.”


Jim Garrett, Director of Operations, Utilita, said: “We’re excited to extend our partnership with PayPoint and look forward to working together into the future. We know our customers value the convenience of buying energy credits at one of 28,000 stores across the UK. The extensive network, the high quality of the retail partners and the strength of their payments offer made this a natural decision for us.”
