Hermes extends UK ParcelShops with Payzone

Hermes and consumer payment network, Payzone have teamed up to launch myHermesParcelShops that will be situated at more than 1,000 UK outlets.

The company already has myHermesParcelShops at more than 700 Payzone stores, but will now specifically choose 1,000 more, based on a range of criteria, such as extended opening times, parking, and population breakdown, in a bid to maximise parcel volumes.

 “We are confident that these additional locations will meet our high standards in terms of quality, location and availability,” said Rob Edson, chief financial officer at Hermes.

“We see our relationship with Payzone as a strategic partnership – the tie up will be instrumental in accelerating the growth of our ParcelShop estate and ultimately providing greater multichannel choice and convenience for our customers in 2014 and beyond.”
