New paysafecard app for smartphones makes it possible to find sales outlets while out and about

22 March 2011, Vienna – The leading provider of online prepaid solutions paysafecard.com Wertkarten AG has released a free application for iPhone, Blackberry, Android and vodafone 360 (Germany). This allows its customers to quickly and simply find the nearest paysafecard sales outlet. Users of the prepaid payment solution can find out which of the more than 300,000 locations (newsagents, petrol stations, pharmacy stores etc.) is easiest to reach even while they are out and about.

If users wish, the application automatically determines their location and suggests a sales outlet. It is also possible to look up outlets using an address. A direct connection to Google Maps and the additional results list, including all the contact details, makes finding sales outlets easy. The route there can then be determined by Google Maps.

The application is available for the iPhone from the Apple App Store and for Android phones from www.AndroLib.com. BlackBerry users can get the app from BlackBerry Appworld at http://de.blackberry.com/services/appworld. For vodafone 360 users, it is available at www.vodafone360.com

"For this reason, the development of mobile apps is an important factor in the success of our customer service," Müller adds.

paysafecard allows users to pay simply and safely online. It works in a similar fashion to top-up cards for mobile phones and it is available from more than 300,000 sales outlets around the world. The 16-digit PIN on every paysafecard guarantees users absolute security. When making a payment, this PIN is simply entered into the payment window. It is not necessary to enter any bank account or credit card details. The amount to be paid is deducted from the paysafecard balance. The prepaid cards are available in the following amounts: €10, €25, €50 and €100.
