Sir; re SGF irked by PayPoint monopoly, The Grocer, November 11 2000 (p6). Far from a cool' reception from retailers, PayPoint has been receiving an overwhelmingly positive reaction following ScottishPower's announcement to use PayPoint. The number of prospective PayPoint agents currently outnumbers those offering the service by more than 2 to 1. It was also stated that PayPoint has a monopoly of ScottishPower payment transactions. If only that statement were true; instead PayPoint will share the provision of this service with the Post Office, and is proud to be working with the convenience sector. PayPoint is founded on sound business principles and is recognised by more than 100 bill issuing clients, including many of the best known names in the UK.
