Paysafecard: What is it and how does it work?

What is paysafecard?

paysafecard is a prepaid credit card. It allows you to pay safely and securely online even without a bank account. And because it’s prepaid, there are no unexpected bills, or monthly contracts.

There are two types of paysafecard:
  • paysafecard classic/ PIN: This type of paysafecard works quite simply. First, you buy a paysafecard code for a certain value and then use the code to pay on thousands of paysafecard partner websites. No extra fees or hassle. When you pay using a paysafecard code, you don’t have to provide extra personal or billing information at checkout. That helps you protect your personal information.
  • paysafecard Mastercard: paysafecard Mastercard is a physical prepaid credit card. It’s a good option if you’re looking for a prepaid credit card to use offline, as well as online. Or, if you’re planning to shop on a website that isn’t a paysafecard partner (yet). Keep in mind that paysafecard Mastercard charges an annual fee. Also, there's a small fee for top-up, ATM withdrawals and payments in foreign currencies.
    You can order your paysafecard Mastercard easily online. All you need to do is create a My paysafecard account first. Topping up your paysafecard Mastercard is also easy - just buy a paysafecard code online.
