PayPoint announces new tie-up with Housing Quality Network to roll out best-in-class payments services

Welwyn Garden City, 8 June 2020: PayPoint has today announced a new partnership with the Housing Quality Network (HQN), which provides high-quality advice, tailored support and training to housing associations and councils across the UK.

The collaboration means that PayPoint will offer its industry-leading digital payment solution, MultiPay, to key decision-makers in the housing market. In addition, through HQN, housing associations will be able to access webinars and events hosted by PayPoint to provide advice and guidance about digitalising payments to its members.

Your Homes Newcastle, a housing association managing over 25,000 homes in the North East, have already taken advantage of this new partnership with PayPoint, using one of MultiPay’s channels, PayByLink to chase arrears, prompt payments and take secure payments over the phone. The PayByLink solution has been particularly useful for clients during lockdown, as with many teams working from home, it offers secure card payments and real-time transaction history remotely for customers peace of mind. All PayPoint’s digital payment services are compliant with Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards.

Danny Vant, Client Services Director at PayPoint, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with HQN as its payments’ partner. The collaboration reinforces how we are transforming the digital payments space and we’re looking forward to assisting HQN’s vast network all over the country.”

Jon Land, Director at HQN, said: “Our partnership with PayPoint means that we are able to offer all our members access to a host of convenient, accessible and best-in-class payment solutions.”
