There are around 40,000 payment/purchase terminals in the UK at grocery stores, petrol forecorts, newsagents, and other convenient locations. Single, uniquely numbered vouchers are worth up to £499.Ukash say that consumers don’t always spend the full value of the vouchers on shopping, communications, lifestyle and gaming websites, leaving ‘small change’ unused. It is this small change that Ukash aims to channel towards charities.
