PayPoint signs new over-the-counter contract
Your TV Licence can continue to be paid across PayPoint’s network of 29,000 stores

20 November 2017: PayPoint has today announced a new agreement with the BBC to provide its in-store payments network for TV Licensing for another 6 years.

Today’s new deal ensures that customers will be able to start, or continue to pay, for their TV Licence in any of PayPoint’s network of 29,000 stores, more than all of the banks, supermarkets and Post Offices put together. PayPoint has handled over 275 million consumer transactions for TV Licensing across the UK since 2006.

Customers will be able to:

  • Pay with cash or debit card. There is no additional charge for paying for your TV Licence at a PayPoint store

  • Buy a new TV Licence if paying all in one go

  • Renew an existing TV Licence or can make payments towards a licence with a payment card or savings card


Lewis Alcraft, Commercial Director of PayPoint plc, said:

"We are incredibly pleased to be extending our relationship with the BBC and continuing a service that helps millions of customers each year. PayPoint’s over-the-counter services for TV Licensing represent excellent value for money for the BBC, and therefore for the licence payers themselves, while guaranteeing access to tens of thousands of payment outlets for customers across the UK."

"I would like to thank the retailers we work with for the great service they deliver to their communities every day."
