PayPoint is partnering with leading brands – Amazon, Neosurf, Xbox, PlayStation, PaySafecard and Love2shop – to offer digital gift cards.

The digital gift card and voucher market is reported to have grown in the UK by almost £1bn, now estimated to be worth £6.9bn.

In the coming weeks PayPoint will be rolling out a point-of-sale promotion at selected retailers to promote its digital gift card and voucher partners.

Danny Vant, Client Services Director for PayPoint, said: “The digital gift card and voucher market has grown significantly in the last 18-24 months, largely driven by lockdown restrictions and consumer appetite to purchase online. However, this trend is not anticipated to abate, indeed, it’s expected to increase by another 25% in the next decade.

“It’s vital we support our physical retailer network in capturing their share of this growing market, including increased customer engagement and revenue.  Of course, the benefits are there too for consumers who now have greater accessibility to a wide choice of digital gift cards and vouchers for gaming, streaming, shopping and making digital payments.”
