PayPoint is promising retailers 25% more commission on selected sim networks.

The new structure will come into effect from August, with retailers seeing the improved commission rates in their bank accounts from September.

The company said as sims cards ordered from PayPoint are free, they offer a huge potential for profit in participating stores. It added that it had paid more than £1m in sim commission to retailers in the year to March 30.

Lewis Alcraft, PayPoint commercial director, said: “I am delighted to announce a further increase to our sim commission rates. PayPoint has developed a strong relationship with all of the UKs most popular networks such as O2, EE, Vodafone and Three, as well as recently adding Giffgaff, which means that our retailers are able to offer great value to their customers and enhance their earning potential.”

PayPoint retailers can order sims directly from their terminal, via their field representative, by calling PayPoint’s sims advisors.
