  • Why have you made changes to the fees and charges, including the increase to £2.99 a week?

    Over the last few years, we have significantly expanded our partnerships, giving your customers access to more services than ever before. From the 27th of March 2023, we are changing our fees and charges to reflect the growing variety of services available through your Payzone device. We have increased weekly service charges to £2.99 a week and simplified many of our additional administrative charges, removing them from the terms and conditions.

  • What new services has Payzone acquired over the last few years?

    Building on Payzone’s exclusive contract with British Gas, our new partnerships include Utilita, E.ON Next, National Express Coach, Transport for Wales, through partners we enable customers to pay rent, council tax for over 500 clients in your store, gift cards with One4All and many more.
