The weekly trials at eight stores were designed to respond to customer claims that reducing plastic is their most concerned environmental problem.
Morrisons removed the 5 p shopping bag in early 2018, which led to a 25% drop in the whole bag sale.
As part of the trial, supermarkets are raising the price of their standard plastic bags from 10 p to 15 p. The new US-
Stylish paper shopping bags priced at 20 p have handles and the capacity is similar to the standard plastic tote bag.
The stores participating in the trial were Camden, Skipton, Wood Green, Hunslet, Yeadon, Erskine, Gibraltar and Abergavenny, Morrisons said.
The 5 p plastic bag tax has been introduced in the UK since October 5, 2015, and all large retailers have been asked to introduce the fee.
There are similar plans for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Environment Minister Michael Gove has set up a consultation campaign that will end next month, raising costs to 10 p, including smaller retailers, which may take effect from January 2020.
Retailers are expected to donate any proceeds from the 5 p fee to charity.
