LINK launches cashback without purchase service

Cash machine network LINK has announced that following a 12-month pilot, it is rolling out a cashback without purchase service across the UK.

Earlier this year, the government made changes to the law to facilitate cashback without a purchase services.

This initiative means consumers will be able to withdraw cash or check balances in smaller shops without the need to buy an item in-store or pay a fee.

The LINK service is already live in more than 1,000 locations.

PayPoint is the first of LINK’s Members to provide the service and will be offering it at more than 2,000 shops before the end of the year.

Consumers using the service can choose to withdraw any amount between 1p and £50 rather than being restricted to notes dispensed by ATMs.

“Protecting access to cash is absolutely vital for millions of people who depend on it. Cashback Without Purchase is a convenient new way for people to withdraw notes and coins at their local retailer,” said Tracey Graham, chair, LINK Consumer Council. “The Consumer Council is delighted to see this important service rolled out across the country and will continue to seek innovative ways to support people who rely on cash for as long as it is needed.”
