Paysafecard, what is it?
Paysafecard is a global market leader in online prepaid payment methods and Paysafe Holdings UK Limited subsidiary. Prepaid means that you buy paysafecard at any of the +600,000 sales outlets worldwide and use it to pay online at thousands of partners across a huge range of industries.
Paysafecard is available in many countries worldwide. In this page we refer to the European countries with Euro Currencies. However, for the countries without euro, Paysafecard is of course available in the local currency.
It is easy! You go to the shop and buy a PIN. You pay cash and receive a piece of paper with a 16 digits code (PIN).
Such number can be used to purchase online. The full amount of the paysafecard you buy is then available for you to spend, there are no fees.
How does it work and why should I use it?
Thousands of online shops from the worlds of gaming, online communities, music, film and entertainment accept paysafecard!
When paying with paysafecard you do not enter your personal details or your bank or credit card information. This ensures the protection of your privacy.
The regular Paysafecard vouchers are available in 4 different amounts: 10, 25, 50 or 100 euro.
The cards can be bought in many drugstores, gas stations, supermarkets and other shops. The paysafecard homepage also offers a search engine where you just need to submit your postal code to find all available shops in you area.
"Paysafecard" vs "My Paysafecard"
Paysafecard and My Paysafecard offer different functions and options. Paysafecard can be used up to the amount that you have chosen. Once you have used all your prepaid funds the 16 digits PIN is no value anymore.
“My Paysafecard” is an online account that can be used to pay repeatedly.
If you have no money left in your account, you can simply reload it and start using it again.
Your My Paysafecard account is password protected and is therefore a safer place and is easier accessible for you, because your username and password do not change.
Each time you buy a PIN, you can upload the full amount OR a partial amount to your account.
You can see a detailed overview of all transactions (IN and OUT) and the amount you have left in your “My Paysafecard” account. Depending on your country of residence a regular Paysafecard is only available up to 100 EUR. The “My Paysafecard” account can be used to pay up to 1.000 EUR, which is a big advantage.
The sign up is for free! However in case you do not use your account for more than 12 months you must pay an inactivity fee. Starting with the 13th month you must pay 2 EUR per month.
There is also a fee for sending money from your Paysafecard account to your regular bank account, which is 7,50 EUR, as well as a currency exchange fee of 2%.
