As online gamers requiring financial privacy and security increase in the US, paysafecard, Europe’s most popular prepaid voucher for online payments, is now available. Prepaid paysafecard vouchers are currently available at over 12,000 outlets in the U.S. in multiple denominations of $10, $25, $50 and $100. Many online game providers recognize paysafecard as a payment method in the U.S. after realizing enormous popularity in Europe.
The paysafecard voucher maintains the gamers financial privacy by offering secure 16 digit pin codes which can be redeemed to buy in-game items and virtual goods in today’s most popular online games that accept the voucher. Also, paysafecard vouchers do not have additional fees charged to the consumer. Most open loop prepaid cards in the U.S. charge consumers usage fees.
The paysafecard voucher is the only prepaid solution of its kind issued and secured by a U.S. bank. The partnership between paysafecard and Bancorp Bank Payment Solutions Group has initiated the prepaid voucher program in hopes of not only providing a secure closed spending process, but also freeing online gamers of the hassles of an extended online registration.
Michael Mueller, CEO of paysafecard group said:
“The United States has the biggest economy in the world with tremendous market potential for prepaid payment solutions. Although credit cards are widely used in the U.S., there are still millions of people who lack credit cards or bank accounts, or are uncomfortable using them to spend money in online games. Together with our partner, The Bancorp Bank, we now offer a secure and accessible prepaid cash solution for gaming developers and publishers to integrate into their games in the U.S.”
Internationally, paysafecard is recognized as a leading payment method by several of the world’s largest online gaming organizations. As the U.S. expansion continues for paysafecard, to emphasis will be building the most secure payments network for U.S. gaming companies, such as NHN USA and extending other relationships.
