Paysafe announces Google Play Store partnership

Payments solutions provider Paysafe has said its prepaid platform Paysafecard is now being accepted as a transaction method in the Google Play Store.

The app store for Android-certified devices has added the technology to its array of purchasing options, meaning customers without a credit card or digital banking services – or those who don’t want to enter their financial data online for security reasons – can transact.

Paysafecard enables consumers who prefer or need to use cash to pay online to purchase goods using the 16-digit Pin.

Udo Müller, CEO of Paysafecard, remarked: “The formation of this exciting partnership is a significant milestone in the history of our company and the launch follows close collaboration and dedication from both of our teams to include Paysafecard as the latest payment method for users.

“Google is one of the best-known brands in the world, if not the best, so partnering with them for our current and prospective customers is a momentous business move.”

Recent research from Paysafecard shows that half of respondents worry about fraudulent purchases and 48% worry about the safety of their personal data. The company says its technology helps cater for this type of shopper.

The Paysafecard-Google partnership will be global, but it starts in Poland, where more than one million people a year already use Paysafecard. The platform is currently available in 46 countries and there are more than 600,000 sales outlets that accept it worldwide – around 40,000 of which are in Poland.
