Paysafecard LogoThe Paysafecard is a prepaid PIN card, which eliminates the need for a bank account or credit card. Customers are able to purchase these PIN cards in over 600,000 shops, across 46 countries. Users also get to choose the value of the card they buy, so they're not bound by a limit too high or low for their comfort. Read on to find out how Paysafecard works and how you can use the Paysafecard app to deposit funds into your favourite mobile casino.


 

How Paysafecard Works

In order to take advantage of the Paysafecard system, customers need to do the following:

  • Sign up for free by creating a username and password
  • Purchase a Paysafecard PIN from a seller or online
  • Enter the 16-digit PIN to manage the amount in a clear overview

Customers get to choose the amount they want on their card and these amounts vary, depending on the country the card holder is in. The differing sum available is determined by the country's local currency, which helps holders manage their finances. For European countries, this comes in the form of five set amounts:

  • 5 EUR
  • 10 EUR
  • 25 EUR
  • 50 EUR
  • 100 EUR

Everyone has experienced a moment of frustration when they have just under the amount required for a purchase or when they have a few pennies left over from a transaction. So, what happens to the pennies, or more, that are left on a card? Well, Paysafecard shows the combined value of all the purchased PINs in one place for you to pay online by simply entering the username and password.

When a customer wants to use the remaining amounts on each Paysafecard PIN, they simply need to enter each PIN, one at a time, when paying to use the collected value. The maximum combined PIN transaction, in Euros, is 250 EUR. This helps use up any remaining balance and gives user's less of a headache when trying to figure out which card has what value left.

Alternatively, if you're a customer that prefers to do their shopping online or partake in the worlds of gaming or streaming, then you can use the Paysafecard for these activities as well. Payments are quick and painless, allowing you to spend more time doing the things you love.

As well as being an easy to track finance manager, users can collect points every time they pay using the Paysafecard. These points can be exchanged in the my PLUS Shop for an array of rewards, such as exclusive offers from popular retailers. Another way to earn points is by referring a friend. For every referral that signs up and purchases something, you get 25,000 PLUS points and 25,000 Level points.
