Europe's paysafecard voucher now available via mobile app
Cellum and Cardnet will provide the backbone for mobile purchases of the prepaid vouchers.
Cellum, a European-based mobile wallet provider, Thursday announced that it is providing consumers a way to buy paysafecard prepaid vouchers from a smartphone app, according to a press release. Previously, such purchases were limited to physical vouchers offered at selected authorized resellers.
Cardnet, a Hungary-based payments processor, is providing the app for paysafecard vouchers, according to the announcement.
Cellum's plug-and-play powers the payment part of Cardnet's paysafecard app, according to the announcement. Cellum said the security of the transactions is ensured by Cellum's unique Split Secret card vault technology, which uses tokenization and data fragmentation to manage mobile transactions that are free of fraud and chargebacks. The app offers international processing in euros via Cellum partner Kalixa, according to the announcement.
Cellum said Cardnet is piloting the app in Austria before rolling it out to the rest of the European Union, while Cardnet expands its functions to include further top-up services.
