Payzone has signed an agreement with Oxendales allowing for the transfer and collection of payments from Oxendales customers through the Payzone retail network. This development forms part of Payzone’s latest move to extend its payment services outside of traditional utility, financial and public sector organisations into new areas including online shopping.
For Oxendales, the new service will provide an easy to use payment option for its catalogue shopping customers.
Oxendales, who also operates Simply Be and Jacomo clothing companies, is a catalogue and online retailer for womenswear, menswear, kidswear and footwear. Customers of Oxendales can sign up for a credit account and receive monthly statements which they can now bring to local Payzone agents to make a payment free of charge.
With over 2,500 retail agents throughout the country, Payzone agents have a presence in every town and county throughout Ireland. Recent independent research conducted by Red C across a broad range of Payzone stores nationwide found that the top three reasons given by consumers for using Payzone services include its ‘handiness and convenience’ (67%), ‘easiness to use’ (35%), and their ‘preference to pay in cash’ (25%).
Payzone agents currently process a variety of electronic transactions services, including mobile phone top ups; debit/credit card transactions; M50 motorway toll payments; Leap travel cards; local property tax payments, parking fees, pre-paid utility and parcel collection services.
