Integrated payments platform Paysafe announced on Thursday that Skrill USA digital wallet has launched a virtual version of its existing Skrill Visa Prepaid Card. According to PaySafe, Skrill USA’s latest product offers Americans a fully digital payments solution that can be activated instantly to spend their Skrill balance online wherever Visa is accepted.
“Once activated, users can shop online immediately. All card details are instantly displayed within their Skrill account, with no need to wait for the solution to be physically delivered. Similarly, unlike a physical card, which can be mislaid or lost requiring replacement delays, the Skrill Virtual Visa Prepaid Card remains constantly accessible until customers choose to lock or deactivate it, which can be done within seconds.”
Paysafe also reported that while a customer incurs no transaction fees when shopping online using the Skrill Virtual Visa card, they do earn points for each payment under the Skrill Knect loyalty program. Each dollar spent online using the virtual card earns a Skrill user one Knect point. Points are redeemable for cash above the 5,000 Knect-point threshold as well as other rewards. Paul Jardon, CEO and CFO of Skrill USA, further stated:
“We’re strongly focused on evolving our product for U.S. consumers. The Skrill Virtual Visa® Prepaid Card gives our customers all the benefits and access to eCommerce of a physical Visa® card with all the speed and convenience of a solution that is 100% digital.”
As previously reported, Skrill provides digital payment solutions to consumers and businesses around the world. The company is headquartered in the UK and has offices in Europe, as well as the U.S.
“From betting and trading to shopping to gaming, our online and mobile payment solutions help customers make payments when and how they want to. Our business solutions let companies of all sizes trade in a global marketplace. Tens of millions of account holders trust Skrill to bring all their payment options together in one place, allowing them to send and receive money conveniently and with confidence in nearly 200 countries and 40 currencies.”
