PayPoint retailers will now be able to offer their customers digital gaming vouchers, with the company announcing a new partnership with Xbox Live.

Across Paypoint’s network of 28,000 c-stores, Microsoft gamers can now top up their accounts as well as purchase credit or Xbox Live vouchers that can be used as gifts. Vouchers can be used to buy games, movies, apps and more, compatible with Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles as well as Windows 10 devices. Vouchers are available in values of £5, £10, £15 and £20 and can be purchased using cash.

Lewis Alcraft, commercial director at PayPoint, said: “Digital vouchers are the perfect solution for consumers who either don’t have access to a debit or credit card or who simply prefer to pay in-store with cash. We are committed to working with the biggest and most popular consumer brands to help encourage customers through the doors of our retail partners.” 

Lee Williams, product manager for Xbox Live, said: “Our partnership with PayPoint enables us to extend our reach to people who want to enjoy games, movies, apps and music online but want to pay in cash.” 

PayPoint’s digital category also includes Skype, Spotify, PlayStation, Nintendo and paysafecard. The company says further brands will be added in coming months, enabling retailers to capitalise on the downloadable content and online entertainment trend.
