PayPoint introduces new Collect+ mobile app for retailers

Merril Boulton ·

PayPoint has announced the arrival of Collect+ StoreScan, an app designed to enable retailers to process parcels quickly and easily, directly from their mobile device. Available on iOS and Android, Collect+ StoreScan means retailers no longer have to process parcel transactions solely via their PayPoint terminal.

The company says parcel delivery and customer collections can be processed from anywhere in the store, helping to free valuable counter space and reduce customer waiting times.

The Collect+ StoreScan mobile app has been designed based on feedback from retailers offering the Collect+ service. Up to ten mobile devices in one Collect+ location can use the app concurrently and it also works when the PayPoint terminal is being operated by another user. Available to download now from the App Store and Google Play, the app has been launched in time for peak parcel season, with the aim of helping retailers to increase efficiency and enhance customer service instore during the busiest time of the year.

Key features of Collect+ StoreScan:

- Driver deliveries – scan or key in parcels quickly and easily. A receipt gets automatically sent to the retailer’s registered email address.

- Customer collections – scan or key in customer’s collection code

“We are always looking for ways to innovate and enhance the range of services we offer to our convenience retail partners,” said Lewis Alcraft, commercial director at PayPoint. “StoreScan is a great addition to Collect+; it gives retailers the flexibility and freedom to handle parcel transactions away from the counter, all from the convenience of their mobile device.”
