  1. Paysafe requires you to register at their site, where they ask for compromising information before you can use their account. So no, not anonymous at all.

  2. You can’t pay with the Paysavecard Pincode. You have to register a Mypaysavecard Accout and set your Mobilenumber, Adress… etc. There isn’t anonymity.

  3. What you talking about….
    you don’t have to.
    just buy paysafecard from any authorized store in the world without ID.

    1. Yes You have to do that.

      if you enter the number and click on “Paysafecard” you go to the psc site.
      You CANT enter the PSC Code.
      There are ONLY 2 fields to login to a “mypaysafecard” account.
      For this Account you have to register and give Phone Number, Email, Real Name, adress, zip code etc.
      After SMS Code and Email link you are forced to IDnow or PostIdent if you ant to verify your account.

      Thats even more Infos than a normal Bank has lol.

  4. LOL! People complaining that paysafecard asks for info. Just write there whatever you want. No one is going to check it. Create a disposable e-mail if you need one. What a kindergarden…

    1. Get a burner phone or pay-as-you-go SIM card for your phone, fill in a false name and address at Paysafe and you’re anonymous.

  5. Also:

    You do not need to register with paysafecard to use it for payment. Go to the store, buy the code (it gets printed at the cash register), go home, log in to a vendor who accepts paysafecard, enter the code. Voila!

    If you wont to check balance of the paysafecard codes you have, you just enter the code at their page anonymously, and they tell you the remaining balance.
