A few decades ago, the majority of financial transactions were made using cash or cheques. The concept of a debit card did not exist, and few people had access to a credit card. Things are changing quickly in the retail world however, and since the advent of internet shopping and online gaming new methods of payment have had to be developed to cater for the small section of the population which still prefers to use cash to pay for their goods and services.
Using Paysafecard allows customers to use cash to shop online. They simply go to their local PayPoint store and buy a card ranging in value from £10 to £75. Paysafecard started in the UK but has expanded its operation to cover most of mainland Europe. The card can then be used online just as a credit card or debit card can be. For mobile bingo players, Paysafecard means that they can deposit funds into their account using cash rather than having to take it straight out of their bank account with a credit or debit card. All mobile casino operators accept these sorts of payments and once the funds are in the account the player can start playing their mobile slots or bingo games immediately.
Paysafecard is a tried and tested method, and as long as the card is not lost or stolen between paying for it in the store and using it on the smart phone or lap top, it is virtually risk free. The fees for using the service are low at around £2 per month. Any winnings from the games played on the mobile casinos can also be withdrawn onto a Paysafecard, and converted back into cash at a later date.
