As part of its Park Christmas Savings initiative, PayPoint has announced that it has now more than 1,700 retail signees, exceeding its 1,500 target. 

With the deadline of 15 December approaching to become PayPoint Park Super Agents, the £2.5m advertising campaign for the Christmas program aims to drive customer awareness for retailers to recruit savers during the festive season. 

The Park Christmas Savings campaign will also be supported by training on digital and in-store points-of-sale, a YouTube masterclass and personalised support to enable retailers to take advantage and earn over £1,000 in commission this Christmas. 

Nick Wiles, CEO of PayPoint, said: “We are now well into the peak recruitment season for savers for Christmas 2024, with a major advertising campaign now live across the UK, so it’s incredibly important that our Super Agents act now to make the most of this opportunity. 

“We have put in place an extensive range of tools and support to ensure they make this a success, helping them boost their earnings and helping families budget for next Christmas.”

Park Christmas Savings, part of the PayPoint Group, is the UK’s biggest Christmas savings club, which aims to help over 350,000 families to spread the cost of Christmas. 

The scheme grants customers access to a wide range of gift cards and vouchers from over 140 of the biggest online and high street brands, including Argos, Primark and B&M.  

This comes as UK citizens are still enduring the cost-of-living crisis, as PayPoint is helping customers to better manage their household budgets and boost their spending power through regular offers and discounts.

PayPoint retailer Judy Mercer, of Hamilton News, Belfast, added: “When we saw the opportunity to become a Park Christmas Savings Super Agent, it was a bit of a no brainer, mainly as there’s a clear benefit financially. 

“In the current economic climate, any additional revenue and security is welcome, and I’m sure that’s true among almost all retailers of our size in the UK. 

“One of the main reasons we partner with PayPoint is because of the large range of additional services and opportunities to earn they bring to the table.”
