PayPoint signs collection deal with Amazon.

Amazon shoppers will now be able to collect their orders from more than 500 PayPoint retailers as part of a partnership with Amazon Hub Counter.

PayPoint has joined the network of pick-up points that allows customers to collect their Amazon orders in-store. Following a successful trial, the service has begun with 500 PayPoint stores and will roll out to thousands more across the UK, the company said.

PayPoint ceo Patrick Headon said: "Online shopping is only continuing to grow in popularity, and retailers who offer parcel collection can tap into that by introducing new customers to their stores and increasing sales."

Amazon Hub Counter launched in the UK earlier this year and is now available on tens of millions of items sold on Amazon.co.uk. The service allows online shoppers to pick up their parcels within 14 days from their chosen location.
