Sales increase on back of new PostPoint branding

Bill pay

PostPoint first unveiled our new branding at Casey’s Centra Castlebar last summer. PostPoint placed our new branding at key positions around the store, including the front windows and various areas by the checkouts.
 
Since then, we have seen a huge increase in sales through the site, with products such as Bill Payments experiencing an increase of up to 550% year on year. 

PostPoint’s new branding brings us very much back in line with our parent company An Post. We believe this creates a much stronger PostPoint brand which will be very recognisable in your store and for your customers. 

If you would like to order POS for your store to help push the PostPoint products that you supply call the Retail Support Line today on 1890 20 42 20.
