Starting May, all Credit Europe Bank credit card holders will benefit from a new, simple and fast way to pay their monthly installments, thanks to the partnership between PayPoint Romania and Credit Europe Bank. Therefore, holders of the credit cards issued by the bank will be able to make commission-free payments at the approximately 20,000 PayPoint terminals throughout the country, with the payment recorded in the customer’s account on the same day (if the payment was completed on a working day, before 22:00).
CardAvantaj, CEB Diamond and Optimo Card card holders can now pay the installments at any PayPoint point of payment based on their credit card statement, either printed or in its electronic form. To successfully complete the operation, the merchant will scan the barcode using the PayPoint terminal, to identify the account number.
Users can pay the amount in cash, and a voucher that confirms the payment will be issued for each transaction. The maximum amount that can be paid in a single transaction is 5,000 lei. Users who wish to repay an amount exceeding this limit can make additional transactions.
PayPoint, the leading operator in cash payments and electronic charging through retail outlets in Romania, is thus diversifying its product portfolio offered to merchants in its network, and clients will enjoy more payment options at any Paypoint location in the country.
The Credit Europe Bank portfolio includes credit cards and installment-shopping cards for local and international payments. The Credit Europe Bank Romania offer includes CardAvantaj, Optimo Card and CEB Diamond.
“We are once again coming to the aid of our credit card clients with our new PayPoint partnership. Thus, we provide them with a new, safe and simple method for credit card statement reimbursements. The collaboration completes and extends our existent solutions, by further increasing our geographical coverage and alternatives in all areas. We continue to focus on finding easy solutions, which can simplify our clients’ lives”, declared Yakup Çil, CEO Credit Europe Bank Romania.
“We know that people need simple and easy-to-access payment solutions, available in the proximity of where they live or work. One of PayPoint's most important objectives is to simplify payments for everyone and through the partnership with Credit Europe Bank, we are able to achieve this goal and expand the range of services we offer to our partner network. Additional new payment options will be added throughout this year, but we will announce more details soon." - Utku Ogrendil, CEO of PayPoint Services Romania.
