European prepaid payment provider paysafecard group has launched its latest product “my paysafecard” in 21 countries. The new online account provides customers with an additional option to pay online.
Customers can now combine their paysafecard PINs in an online account. Instead of having to enter individual PINs for each payment, the online account enables customers to pay with their unique user name and password. my paysafecard is not linked to any bank account and can be topped up by using paysafecard PINs.
The solution gives customers a full overview on information such as the current account balance and transaction history at all times. The system automatically combines the paysafecard PINs for each payment, ensuring that the remaining credit on the paysafecard PINs is always used up. Additional features will follow over the next few weeks.
Michael Mueller, CEO of paysafecard group: “my paysafecard is the next logical step on our mission to provide consumers with secure payment solutions for the Internet that don’t require a bank account or credit card details. With my paysafecard, we have made the usage of our PINs even easier and more convenient. Consumers who want to have an overview of their balance and payments will appreciate my paysafecard.”
