Paysafecard, one of the world’s leading providers in prepaid cards for online use has spread its support to Australia. The move to Australia seems very natural given that 90% of Australians are active online, and the need for online payment methods is in high demand.
To those unfamiliar with Paysafecard, the service is simple and safe. To use Paysafecard, one needs to go to any retail store or outlet that sells the card. There, in exchange for cash, the user will receive a PIN code that needs to be entered upon purchase. With a high-level of online security consciousness and the tendency to pay with cash, Australians are looking for simple and secure ways to pay online. It is for these reasons that Paysafecard is ideal for the Australian market.

Austrailia already has similar options for online payment that usually come with high fees and rates. Paysafecard will not be instilling a fee structure yet, and prices for the prepaid cards will be at face value. In addition, Paysafecard has also partnered with epay and Touch Networks to insure wide distribution, and the cards will be made available at over 12,000 retail stores and outlets, with plans to expand in the near future.
With its widespread popularity in Europe, and with being one the only payment methods approved by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement for online gambling, we expect to hear more from Paysafecard in the near future.
