Innovation timeline

Since 1997, PayPoint has been flying the flag for convenience. Our first ambition was to simplify the complex business of payments. It’s an ongoing challenge that still consumes us today, pushing us to reach ever-higher levels of creativity and innovation.

From cash payments, we expanded our remit to find other ways of making life more convenient – for consumers, retailer partners and clients alike. With a portfolio of high-quality retail products and services underpinned by pioneering technology, we now empower consumers to access a wide range of services, retailers to grow their businesses, and clients to make it easier for their customers to pay via any channel and on any device.


Today, the PayPoint Group delivers innovative services and technology connecting millions of consumers with over 60,000 retailer partner and SME locations. We're leading the way in retail technology, services and omnichannel payments across a huge range of sectors, including parcel delivery, financial, leisure, transport, smart ticketing, utilities, housing associations, local authorities and telecommunications.

In an increasingly busy world, we’re just as focused on bringing the latest technology to the heart of every community – to make people’s lives a little easier every day.

We’ve been ahead of the curve since we began: always anticipating the next big change in consumer payments and retail technology, and developing solutions that will define it.
