Appreciate Group plc enters partnership with PayPoint

Gifting product to be made available at 28,000 PayPoint retailers

Appreciate Group plc ("Appreciate"), the UK's leading multi-retailer redemption product provider, has entered a new partnership with PayPoint plc that will see its gifting products offered to consumers via PayPoint's network of 28,000 retailer partner stores across the United Kingdom.

Consumers will now be able to purchase Love2Shop e-gift cards at PayPoint outlets. These cards can then be exchanged so that customers can shop with some of the nation's favourite high street and online brands, including Argos, Halfords, Marks & Spencer, ASOS, Costa and Uber Eats.

Appreciate is also working with PayPoint to supply its retailers with marketing support for its retailer partner stores so that awareness of the product in-store can be maximised.

Ian O'Doherty, Chief Executive, at Appreciate Group, said:

"This is an exciting opportunity for Appreciate Group as the partnership provides our first physical distribution network for Love2Shop e-gift cards. Overnight, it provides us with a network of 28,000 stores that reach into the heart of communities throughout the UK.

"Following recent success in building out our digital offering, this agreement further enhances our offer and adds depth to how customers can access our products. Looking ahead, working with partners who we believe can strengthen our proposition and help us drive growth, such as PayPoint, is a key component of our plans for future growth."
