About PayPoint Ireland

PayPoint is now firmly established in the Republic of Ireland. PayPoint is a leading international provider of convenient payments and value added services to major consumer service organisations in the energy pre and post-payment,  telecoms, cable, housing, waste collection, media, financial services, retail, e-commerce, and public sectors.

PayPoint commenced trading in the UK in 1996 initially collecting cash payments for household bills and services through its network of convenience retailers.  In 2003, the Electricity Supply Board of Ireland (ESB) signed an agreement with PayPoint to give their customers the option of paying their bill or buying their electricity tokens at PayPoint.  Consequently PayPoint rolled out a new network of agents in the Republic of Ireland to collect these payments.  

Bord Gais, Airtricity, Eircom, Vodafone, O2 and Tesco soon joined ESB and now more than 580 PayPoint outlets in Southern Ireland collect cash payments on behalf of many household and service organisations.
