Chelmsford Star Co-operative are pleased to offer Paypoint in our food stores across Essex, providing a quick and convenient way for our customers to take care of those more mundane tasks on the go.

So even if you’re just picking up some groceries, grabbing lunch or just walking past, it’s easy to fit in those essential things on your to-do list. With services from over 1,500 companies, here are just a few of the things you can quickly take care of when you next pop in.


Bill Paying

There are a wide range of bills that can be paid using PayPoint – simply bring your statement, card or meter key with you and your cashier will do the rest. You will be provided with a receipt and the reassurance that your money will reach your service provider the next day. Not sure which bills can be paid using PayPoint? Simply look for the logo on your bill, or contact your provider directly. See below for a handy list of compatible local service providers.


TV License

You can buy a TV License, renew an existing one or make payments on a TV License card using Paypoint. Simply provide your renewal letter or payment card, otherwise we can issue new TV licenses there and then.


From mobile phone credit to energy, you can ‘Top up’ on a wide range of services. For Pay as You Go mobile customers, you can top up on any network using Paypoint; for prepaid energy, you will find that most major gas and electric suppliers are supported.
