Austrian students love paysafecard

Many students do not own credit cards and therefore have problems paying for services and fees online. That´s one reason why the Medical University of Graz has introduced paysafecard as a new payment method.

Students at the Medical University of Graz can now pay for the acceptance process each March via paysafecard. Many of them prefer this option rather than paying with a credit card. “For us, this does not generate a significant transaction  volume,” says Walter Tauchner, VP partner management: “But it proves that there are still many areas where there is a real demand for cash payments on the internet, like for specific small fees or charges.”
