Camelot Refused Permission


London, England — 1st March 2011

Britain’s National Lottery Commission Announcement

Camelot refused permission to offer bill payment services through its terminals


Response from epay

 We are delighted that, despite their lobbying of MPs, it has been recognised that Camelot’s monopoly with the lottery would have distorted the market place and would not have been fair competition.

Fair competition is in the customer’s interest, the retailer’s interest and of course in the interests of companies like epay who are already in this market place.

The payment market is a really exciting one at the moment, with new technology set to change the way we do business and behave as consumers.   epay will be announcing some amazing new products and partnerships over the coming year and, with this decision, we can go forward confident that, if we deliver the right solutions for our customers,  we will be able to invest in further innovations that will benefit everyone.   This year is going to be a really exciting one.
