paysafecard launches cash based online payment solution to the United Arab Emirates

Providing alternative, secure and compliant payments for online purchases within region

VIENNA, 31 July 2017 – paysafecard, a global leader in online prepaid payment methods and part of Paysafe Group plc, enters the United Arab Emirates, offering a secure and fast prepaid payment solution that will not require bank or credit card details.

The UAE continues to embrace technology innovation in line with its government's 'Smart Dubai' initiative to transform Dubai into the world's smartest city. With Samsung, Apple and many other international technology companies taking advantage of the governments initiative and support, digital payment systems have become a key area of focus which made moving into the UAE a logical step for paysafecard. The UAE are ranked ninth in gross national product per capita when adjusted for purchasing power, placing it above countries such as Switzerland . Internet usage is also at more than 93% , almost 65% of the 5.8 million-strong population use mobile broadband internet . Cash affinity is still very high and credit card penetration is rather low.

“The UAE is an ideal market for our business expansion given the GNP, Internet usage, demographics and low credit card usage. Being able to offer paysafecard in the UAE brings great value for the customers because it allows them to use their preferred payment method (cash) to pay online quickly and safely as well as for local brick-and-mortar shops. By offering an established prepaid payment method such as Paysafe’s paysafecard a bridge is created between e-commerce and the brick-and-mortar shops. By selling paysafecard, shops can not only generate new customers, increase customer satisfaction and customer loyalty, but they can also earn money in what is a classic e-commerce process. In addition, customer traffic increases because paysafecard users are regular customers for the most part,” comments Udo Müller, CEO, paysafecard.

The prepaid specialists are making their start in the UAE in cooperation with sales partner uPay, which will offer the payment method at 300 vending machines. Currently, paysafecard is already available in the emerging MENA region; in both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

"We are proud to bring paysafecard to the UAE and providing a leading prepaid payment method to the internet users of our country. In doing so, we fill a gap that for many people here was a real obstacle to using the opportunities of the internet when it comes to convenient and safe payments. We look forward to a successful cooperation that will benefit all parties involved." comments Mr. Timur Turpalov from uPay.

Battle of Britain’s Holiday Spending Heats Up

Source: Fintech Finance

Firms seek to win over cost-conscious holidaymakers with money-saving solutions and incentives

Rip-off deals and poor exchange rates are kick-starting a battle for the nation’s travel money this summer, with payment providers creating cost-saving solutions to target the wallets of cost-conscious holidaymakers.

According to the Prepaid International Forum (PIF), the not-for-profit trade body representing the prepaid financial services sector, holidaymakers are facing a huge difference in the cost of spending money abroad this summer with a  growing range of payment methods and associated deals on offer.

A study* of the best and worst value options on the market showed a 19.5% difference on Euro spending (€96 for every £500 spent) and a 17.5% difference for US Dollars ($92 for every £500 spent).

If this wasn’t motivation enough to shop around, the weak pound is contributing to rocketing costs in some popular destinations.  For example, the price of holiday spending in Nice, France for British visitors has increased by 38% in the last year according to the Post Office’s Holiday Costs Barometer report for 2017 reflecting the weakening Pound to Euro.

To ensure they aren’t suffering from poor deals and the after-effects of Brexit-influenced exchange rates, PIF’s experts are recommending that consumers shop around for the best deals and check the costs incurred when spending money abroad.

Alastair Graham, PIF spokesperson, comments, “In previous years consumers have absorbed the extra costs and fees levied on spending abroad, not wanting to spoil their holiday by counting the pennies.  However, worsening exchange rates and greater disparities in price between available options, means that this summer, travellers are keen to cash-in on ways to save money.

“Fees on domestic debit and credit cards when used abroad are a common bug bear, as are fluctuations in exchange rates which make it hard to be sure exactly what bill you’ll face on arriving home.  Cash is always an option, but increasingly travellers are aware of the security risk this presents.

“To provide an alternative, we are seeing innovation from prepaid providers that aim to appeal to consumers fed up with traditional, expensive solutions

Helping Reduce Costs for Consumers

Specialist payment providers such as, FairFX, offers the security of spending on a card (and so not carrying large sums of cash abroad) but without the accompanying high fees and extra charges.

A study carried out by FairFX reveals that the average fee to use your debit card and credit card abroad is 2.8% and 3.5% respectively. Switching to prepaid solutions avoids this charge and also means that consumers aren’t at the mercy of the exchange rate on the day you use it.  Instead FairFX allows you to preload a card at a fixed exchange rate (allowing you to pick the most favourable time to exchange).  This, combined with lower commission rates, can add up to considerable savings.

According to FairFX, such services also reflect how savvy consumers are choosing to exchange money.

FairFX CCO James Hickman says: “When the pound was stronger, consumers didn’t pay as much attention to the impact that exchange rates can have on holiday costs. However, in the last 18 months, and particularly since the Brexit referendum, there has been a significant change in focus. With poorer exchange rates against major currencies including the euro and the US dollar, consumers are getting less for their pound than they were two summers ago. 

“Planning ahead is key; one in 10 of us leave travel money until the last minute but this means you limit any control and are forced to accept whatever rate is available on the day. In the same way as you should book your travel insurance when you book your holiday, you should start planning your travel money at the same time – if not before. By monitoring exchange rates, many customers are now buying when the rates are at their strongest and get the biggest bang for your buck. If you don’t have time, the free FairFX travel money tracker will do this for you.”

Added benefits to tempt consumers

Providers are also adding additional benefits to holiday spending services to tempt consumers.

Research carried out by Tuxedo Money Solutions and Escape Travel Card, reveals that having holiday cash stolen is still a major concern for 70% of British holidaymakers.  Despite this fact, 54% still opt to carry large sums of cash to avoid banking fees and charges.

Rob Darby of Tuxedo Money Solutions says: “To provide a solution to this problem the Escape Travel Card programme, developed by Tuxedo Money Solutions, offers holidaymakers a safe and convenient way to carry money, while also eliminating the costly card fees on purchases made abroad.

“Holidaymakers can preload the card with up to £5,000 and if the card does happen to get lost or stolen it can be locked immediately with a single SMS text message, keeping valuable travel funds safe and sound until a new card can be delivered.”

Another provider, Mastercard, is even throwing in access to over 1 million, free, global Wi-Fi hotspots to sweeten the deal for holidaymakers.  People signing up to its Platinum Prepaid Travel Card are signed up to Boingo Wi-Fi helping to keep them connected while abroad.

Mastercard, Western Union Designing Digital Solutions for Refugees

Source: Paybefore -  Mastercard and Western Union have teamed up to help refugees around the world access goods, services and financial services within refugee settlements. Announced on June 20—World Refugee Day—the partnership will explore ways to use a digital model to serve the more than 65 million people around the world currently displaced from their homes due to political conflict and natural disasters.

The collaboration will aim to enable refugees, their host communities and donors to send and receive funds digitally, creating more transparency and long-term empowerment of refugees, according to Mastercard and Western Union.

Over the past year, the firms studied a pair of settlement camps in northwestern Kenya to examine the needs, challenges and opportunities for refugees and their host communities. The findings led to the development of Smart Communities: Using Digital Technology to Create Sustainable Refugee Economies, a blueprint designed to serve refugees by combining digital access to remittances, banking, education, health care and other basic needs in way that is “unified and trackable.”

The model emphasizes digital solutions including the delivery of mobile money, digital vouchers and prepaid cards, noted Maureen Sigliano, head of customer relationship management, Western Union. “The goal is to drive personal empowerment, stimulate growth and promote social cohesion among the world’s refugee populations, while driving better governance and transparency,” she said.

Both Mastercard and Western Union are founding members of the Tent Partnership for Refugees, a coalition of more than 70 companies committed to addressing the global refugee crisis. In 2016, Mastercard was named Pay Awards Change Agent of the Year for its Mastercard Aid Network, an end-to-end solution that streamlines humanitarian aid distribution by using debit cards preloaded with credits for physical goods such as food and medicine. Mastercard later expanded the aid network by combining it with the network’s money transfer and prepaid capabilities to offer other forms of aid, including digital cash and vouchers.

“The private sector is uniquely positioned to bring greater innovation and ingenuity to this crisis,” said Gideon Maltz, executive director of Tent. The Mastercard-Western Union initiative “reflects the contributions that companies can make when they identify problems, collaborate with each other, and work tirelessly to find and fund scalable solutions to fix them,” added Maltz.

allpay extends PayPoint contract

UK bill issuers will continue to have access to the largest retail network as part of the suite of digital payment solutions offered by payment specialist allpay, following the group’s contract extension with PayPoint.

allpay has signed a new five-year contract with the retail network and multichannel payments provider building on its 20-year relationship, and as such, it will remain at the heart of allpay’s over-the-counter bill payments offering to more than 800 public and private sector clients.

allpay has become the network’s biggest reseller and in the last year has signed more than 40 new local authority and housing associations – providing citizens with access to nearly 30,000 outlets to pay their bills.

Cash payments now represent just under half of the £6 billion allpay collects for clients annually from more than 60 million transactions.

allpay’s managing director Tony Killeen, said that while the UK’s payment habits were changing, large cross sections of society still prefer to budget and pay bills in cash. In housing and local government, welfare reforms such as Universal Credit and the localisation of council tax benefit has required some people to pay a bill for the first time - with a large proportion in the sector preferring to budget and pay their bills in cash.

Killeen continued: “PayPoint continues to play a key part in our payments offering and with nearly 30,000 UK outlets, provides both choice and convenience to UK bill payers, with most open long hours and seven days a week. As such, the business case for local authorities and housing associations utilising the network through our solution remains a cost-effective way of reducing income collection costs.

“The launch of its new platform, PayPoint One, – which is being rolled out across the country – is a great example of the investment it is making to provide a fast in-store customer experience that meets the demands of modern day consumers.

“We are looking forward to continuing our relationship and continuing to cater for the needs of all bill payers – and our ability to provide access to the PayPoint network is a key part of that.”

Lewis Alcraft, commercial director at PayPoint said: “We’re pleased to be extending our relationship with allpay who remain a key strategic partner for us. We look forward to working with them over the course of the new contract.”
