20 years' experience with eCash methods of payment
Paysafe’s eCash products make it possible to make cash-based payments online – easily, conveniently and securely – completely without a bank account or credit card.
20 years' experience
With the rapid growth of the internet, the field of online shopping became steadily more important in the late 1990s. However, suitable payment methods were unavailable, which became an obstacle for financial inclusion and for the development of e-commerce. This was tackled by the founders of paysafecard: they developed a solution for "cash on the internet" and became pioneers of online payment. Today, paysafecard, as one of the market leaders worldwide for eCash methods of payment on the internet, is active in 60 countries across the world and part of the leading specialised payment platform Paysafe.
paysafecard.com Wertkarten GmbH operates in 60 countries with its headquarters in Vienna and branches in Dublin and London. There are also subsidiaries in Germany, the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Switzerland, Turkey and the USA.
The Prepaid Services Company Limited with its headquarters in London (a subsidiary of paysafecard) has had an e-money licence since 2008 from the British Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and a Mastercard® licence since 2009 to issue Mastercard® products. In addition, Paysafe Prepaid Services Limited, a sub-subsidiary of paysafecard with its headquarters in Dublin, has had an e-money licence since 2019 from the Central Bank of Ireland (CBI). Using these licences, electronic money and prepaid Mastercard® products can be issued in the European Union and in particular also in the UK.
paysafecard.com Schweiz GmbH is a further subsidiary of paysafecard and a member of the self-regulatory organisation SRO Treuhand | Suisse. As a Swiss financial intermediary, it has been authorised since 2008 to issue and sell the products paysafecard, paysafecard account, Paysafecash and YUNA2GO in Switzerland and for the sale of these products in all those countries where there are no licence provisions. This includes Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Kuwait, Mexico, Moldova, Paraguay, Peru, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Uruguay.
