Paysafe enables online cash payments for Microsoft users
By Megha Bhattacharya
UK-based payments platform Paysafe has extended its relationship with Microsoft. The company aims to offer an online cash payment option to Microsoft customers by enabling paysafecard as a payment option in Microsoft Store in 22 countries across Europe. The collaboration will see the addition of new countries as well as extend paysafecard’s availability to purchases on the Xbox game console.
Udo Müller, CEO of paysafecard, said, “Working with a technology giant like Microsoft that offers such a vast variety of hardware and software products that millions of people use every day allows us to reach an enormous new customer base. And for Microsoft, whose mission it is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more, having this simple eCash solution as a user-friendly payments option makes them even more accessible.”
paysafecard enables consumers to use cash to shop for goods and services online. Customers, via the ‘my paysafecard’ account, have the option to combine credit balances. The collaboration integrates paysafecard as a payment option for individual purchases of digital consumer goods available through Microsoft Store and Xbox.com and is now available in the following 22 countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Trevor Nies, Sr. Director of Payments at Microsoft, commented on the partnership, “We are proud to enable cash-based customers to access the world of online shopping with a solution that is as reliable, easy and secure as paysafecard. Making Paysafe’s eCash payment solution available to millions of our customers who are shopping for our products online was a logical next step for us.”
