Paysafe has entered into a new partnership with tech giant Google to allow the usage of its prepaid business paysafecard as a payment method in the Google Play Store, the app store for Android-enabled devices.

The collaboration will allow the Paysafe customers with a paysafecard to pay online in the Google Play Store, eliminating the need to use credit, digital banking services in the store.

paysafecard allows the customers to complete a transaction swiftly using the 16-digit PIN.

The service is expected to allow millions of paysafecard users to carry out shopping at the Play Store.

paysafecard CEO Udo Müller said: “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.”

Initially, the service will be launched in Poland, where around one million people use paysafecard annually.

Currently, the paysafecard service is available in 46 countries with more than 600,000 sales outlets across the globe.
