Mobile payments with paysafecard: "Paying by QR code" brings mobile payments to Poland

Vienna/Warsaw, 22 September 2014 - New service level in mobile payments: Première in Poland - Very simple: Paying even more easily and conveniently with QR codes - Safe and simple: Every payment is confirmed with a security code

paysafecard, member of the international Skrill Group, is the worldwide leading provider in online prepaid payment solutions. The mobile payments segment in particular is developing at a rapid pace, offering paysafecard and its customers enormous advantages. Mobile payments are unbeatably fast, simple and safe. For this reason, paysafecard has taken the decision to now use the new practical service "scan2pay" for its mobile payments services.

scan2pay has had its worldwide première in the important market of Poland. The requirements for using this service are a mobile device, installing the free paysafecard app and using the free online payments account my paysafecard.

Using scan2pay is incredibly simple and makes paying in seconds possible:

  • Open the paysafecard app and select scan2pay.
  • Scan the QR code displayed during the payment process with the smartphone.
  • The paysafecard app now displays all the important payment details.
  • Confirm the payment by entering the 4-digit security code personally chosen by each customer.

The paysafecard is free for all iOS and Android users at https://www.paysafecard.com/pl-pl/produkty/aplikacja. Free registration for the online payments account my paysafecard can be completed at https://www.paysafecard.com/pl-pl/produkty/my-paysafecard. Poland is the first country in which paysafecard offers scan2pay. Further markets will follow soon.

Udo Müller, CEO of paysafecard, is excited by the new service: "Poland is one of our most important markets and an early adopter of technological innovations. This curiosity and openness is precisely the right environment for scan2pay. For this reason, among others, Poland has earned the right to be the first market to experience this new service. The path to becoming world market leader includes both opening up new markets and continued growth in existing markets. Services such as scan2pay make a significant contribution to this. This ensures that our service portfolio continues to grow and that the acceptance of paysafecard as 'online cash' continues to increase."
