Integration with paysafecard Enables Cash Upload to the Skrill Digital Wallet

London, 27th February 2014 – Skrill, one of the world’s leading digital payments companies, today announces that customers can now use paysafecard to top up their Skrill Digital Wallets. This integration, which follows Skrill Group’s acquisition of paysafecard in early 2013, enables Skrill Digital Wallet users to add funds to their wallets quickly, easily, and safely, without the use of a credit card or bank account, adding a new option for loading money to the Skrill Digital Wallet.

Users can purchase paysafecard in person at more than 450,000 sales outlets around the world. After purchasing paysafecard, customers can instantly top up the credit in their Skrill Digital Wallet using their “my paysafecard” account. Customers can load up to €300/£250, and after verification make top ups of up to €1,000/£850 a day and up to €3,000/£2,500 within a 30-day period.

Once funds are uploaded through paysafecard, customers can use them with any merchant that accepts Skrill payments, or to transfer money to other Skrill Digital Wallet holders. Users can enjoy the advantages of advanced security and control of their money, as there is no need to enter credit card or bank account information at any point in the process.

Stuart Gregory, VP of Digital Wallet at Skrill, comments: “In a world where digital transactions continue to grow, the Skrill and paysafecard integration provides a level playing field that enables those without bank accounts to still benefit from being able to make payments via the Internet.”

paysafecard is available from many supermarkets, petrol stations, tobacconists and newsagents.
