The collaboration will mean customers without a card can order online to pay with cash in store

PayPoint has partnered with the Paysafe Group to allow customers to pay for online purchases in stores using cash.

The collaboration will mean customers without a card, or those who prefer not to disclose bank details online, can now visit one of 28,000 UK PayPoint sites to pay for their online order.

Once a customer has selected Paysafecash as the preferred payment option, a barcode is issued. It can either be printed or taken on a phone or tablet to a store with PayPoint, where the order is completed.

“There remains a demand for cash payments and innovations such as Paysafecash help us to meet this,” said Lewis Alcraft, PayPoint chief commercial officer.
