Scottish Grocers Federation partners with Paypoint

Paypoint is set to join as a corporate member of the trade association’s board

The Scottish Grocers Federation (SGF) has announced its new partnership with Paypoint, the instore payment service, which will join a corporate member of the trade association’s board.

As part of the partnership, both the SGF and Paypoint will focus on “rebuilding relationships” with other retail partners coming out of the pandemic.

Furthermore, the trade body is set to explore the sector in dealing with issues, such as DRS, Access to Cash and the wider post-Covid-19 economic recovery in Scotland.

Nick Wiles, the chief executive of PayPoint, said: “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.

“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.”

Pete Cheema, the chief executive of SGF, said: “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.”

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