Paying safely online with paysafecard

Vienna, 4th December 2013 – Being able to pay safely on the internet is an important issue for anyone who wishes to pay quickly and conveniently online. paysafecard has a reliable solution: pay with paysafecard. paysafecard is so popular precisely because customers never have to enter any personal details such as a bank account or credit card number to be able to pay safely at thousands of online shops. But as with any payment method, from cash to credit cards, paysafecard can also become the target of criminal elements.

That's why the European market leader for prepaid payment solutions has launched a campaign addressing the issue of "paying simply and safely online", and thereby help raise consumer awareness. This security campaign comprises of both up-to-date materials such as a security fact sheet, security brochure and newsletter, as well as a dedicated security website.

In order to protect customers against fraud, the company works closely with the relevant authorities and consumer protection agencies. A dedicated security department within the company develops preventative measures to identify and remove potential risks. Suspicious incidents are carefully scrutinised and reported to the authorities.

However, the most important measure is to treat the 16-digit PIN found on every paysafecard like cash and never pass it on to a third party.
