Microsoft Ireland and Payzone have this week announced a new partnership which entails launching Xbox digital products and Office 365 subscriptions in Payzone agents across the country.
A new approach for both businesses, the partnership is the first of its kind for Payzone - introducing the first digitally delivered gaming and productivity software to the platform.
The largest consumer payments network in Ireland, Payzone services over 2,700 branded retail agents processing a variety of electronic transactions services including mobile phone top ups, debit/credit card transactions, M50 motorway toll payments, Leap travel cards, local property tax payments, parking fees, pre-paid utility, parcel collection services and now, Microsoft digital products.
Speaking on the launch, Consumer and Device Sales Lead at Microsoft Ireland, Colin Chapman said, "Our mission at Microsoft is to empower everyone to achieve more, and this partnership with Payzone, aligns to that endeavour. Our customers can now purchase digital products, such as Xbox Live, credit, and Microsoft Office 365, at their local participating convenience stores. We are delighted to work with Payzone on this initiative."
Chief Executive Officer at Payzone Ireland, Jim Deignan added, "Making payments seamless for consumers is the essence of what we do in Payzone. Partnering with Microsoft is an excellent fit, as we consistently strive to provide the market with innovative and locally accessible services that make lives easier."
