May 19, 2014 (Mon): paysafecard.com Wertkarten AG has continued its international expansion by launching its online account “my paysafecard” in Croatia. The company, which is part of the Skrill group, expects the payment account to be a huge success with customers in Croatia where paysafecard has been available since 2012. With the latest move, consumers in 28 countries can now pay for their online purchases via the unique account by simply entering their user name and password.
Customers pay with their unique user name and password
my paysafecard allows users to combine their paysafecard PINs in an online account. Instead of having to enter individual PINs when making a purchase online, the account enables customers to pay with their unique user name and password. my paysafecard is not linked to a bank account and can be topped up by using the unique 16-digit PIN that comes with each paysafecard. The account 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.
No fees, no additional hardware or software
The registration process for my paysafecard is simple as it only requires an email account and a mobile number. No fees apply for the registration or use of my paysafecard. Neither the users nor the online shops need any additional hardware or software to use my paysafecard. The previous payment process, for which the 16-digit PIN is required when making a purchase in an online shop, remains in place.
Limited and unlimited edition
As in most other countries in which the online account is available, customers in Croatia can opt for a standard or an unlimited version of my paysafecard. The annual limit for the standard version is 19,000 Croatian kuna (approx. 2,500 euros). In order to use the unlimited edition, identification and a proof of address are required.
Udo Müller, CEO of the paysafecard.com Wertkarten AG: “We are doing everything we can to offer my paysafecard in all countries in which paysafecard is available. By going live in Croatia, we are one step closer to achieving our goal.”
With the launch of my paysafecard in Croatia, consumers across the country can now also benefit from “my PLUS”, a loyalty programme for all customers who use my paysafecard. The programme, which has been developed and technically implemented by paysafecard, was launched at the beginning of April in 27 countries.
