Paypoint and Bulb spark new payments partnership

PayPoint and Bulb have switched on a new partnership that will allow Bulb’s customers to pay for their energy top-ups at 27,500 convenience stores across the UK.

Bulb currently supplies 100 per cent renewable electricity and gas to 1.7 million people. The deal means Bulb customers can top up their pre-payment meters - whether they have a traditional or smart meter - at PayPoint’s extensive retailer network.

Bulb’s Smart Pay As You Go customers are able to top up online, but those who prefer to use cash can benefit from the convenience of PayPoint - with 99.3 per cent of the UK population said to be living within a mile of a PayPoint store.

Danny Vant, client services director at PayPoint, said: “As a growing digitally-focused energy company, this deal is brilliant for all parties as we help Bulb reach those who are more cash-reliant.

“Our continued commitment to providing better payment access is central to our mission of transforming convenience for both retailers and consumers.”

SJ Han, Smart PAYG product manager at Bulb, said: “We aim to provide a best-in-class experience for our pre-pay members, whether they’re topping up online or in-store. The extensive reach of PayPoint’s network made it the obvious choice for a partner.”

Bulb’s electricity is sourced from renewable generators from across the UK, including six independent hydro-electric power stations in Wales and Scotland.
