11 April 2016: PayPoint is announcing the extension of its range of digital vouchers to include Xbox. Consumers can now top up their Xbox Live account or purchase credit as a gift for family or friends across any one of PayPoint’s network of 28,000 convenience stores across the UK.
Xbox Live vouchers can be used to buy the latest, games, movies, apps and more on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows 10 devices. They are available in values of; £5, £10, £15 and £20 and can be purchased using cash.
Lewis Alcraft, Commercial Director at PayPoint said: “Digital vouchers are the perfect solution for consumers who either don’t have access to a debit or credit card or who simply prefer to pay in-store with cash. We are committed to working with the biggest and most popular consumer brands to help encourage customers through the doors of our retail partners.”
“Our partnership with PayPoint enables us to extend our reach to people who want to enjoy games, movies, apps and music online but want to pay in cash,” said Lee Williams, Product Manager for Xbox Live.
The addition of Xbox further bolsters PayPoint’s digital category which also currently includes Skype, Spotify, PlayStation, Nintendo and paysafecard. Further brands will be added in coming months, enabling retailers to capitalise on the downloadable content and online entertainment trend.
