PayPoint and EG Group renew partnership

PayPoint partnered with YouLend

PayPoint said it has secured a deal to renew its partnership with forecourt operator EG Group for three more years.

The extension will ensure the continuation of its bill payment and parcel services in nearly 400 of EG Group’s forecourt sites across the UK.

EG Group, owned by brothers Zuber and Mohsin Issa and private equity firm TDR Capital, recently acquired a majority stake in supermarket chain Asda from US retail giant Walmart.

The Blackburn-based group operates over 6,000 sites in Europe, the US and Australia.

“PayPoint’s Collect+ and integrated bill payment technology help to drive footfall at our sites so we’re very happy to agree a new deal securing their services,” commented Ahmed Kazi, group operations director at EG Group.

“Our sites are an important and valued part of the parcel network and their payment solutions help our stores operate at maximum efficiency.”

Danny Vant, client services director at PayPoint, said: “We’re delighted to renew our partnership with EG Group. The extension of our partnership means customers can continue to access our bill payment and parcel services at key forecourt outlets across the country.”
