PayPoint and SGF partner to support Scottish retailers

PayPoint has partnered with the Scottish Grocers Federation (SGF) to support convenience retailer partners in Scotland.

The partnership will see PayPoint join as a corporate member of the trade association which is the authoritative voice of the Scottish convenience store sector and will be focusing on rebuilding relationships with retailer partners, engaging more regularly and strengthening propositions to deliver better products, service and value to their businesses.

The two organisations will also be exploring ways to support the industry and retailer partners further with issues such as DRS, Access to Cash and post-Covid-19 economic recovery in Scotland.

The move comes after several positive meetings between the senior leadership teams of both organisations, including Pete Cheema, chief executive of SGF, and PayPoint chief executive Nick Wiles.

“We’re delighted to be joining the SGF again as an active corporate member and I would like to thank Pete and his team for their constructive engagement to date,” Wiles said

“Over the coming year, there will be many exciting growth opportunities for our retailer partners and we are looking forward to working closely with the SGF to help our Scottish convenience retailer partners get the most out of PayPoint in their stores.”

Cheema added: “We warmly welcome this exciting new partnership between SGF and PayPoint and we are committed to making it a success.

“The recent high-level engagement between the two organisations has shown clearly that we have the same aims and objectives in supporting retailers, maximising business development opportunities and working collaboratively.

“Being a member of SGF will ensure that PayPoint is an integral part of the convenience sector in Scotland.”
