Type of payment: E-wallet

Click2Pay is online payment system owned by Click2Pay GmbH., a full subsidiary of Wire Card AG and as a company founded in 2003 in the German city of Münich. Nowadays the company has settled its headquarters in Berlin, and although still mainly used by German (and Russian) clients the service is available in many countries worldwide carrying out thousands of online payment transactions in various currencies.

What´s Click2Pay?

Click2Pay is an online “e-wallet”, a wallet with “electronic” money, with which you can pay in all sorts of web shops and on all sorts of websites..

To use the system you need to open a Click2Pay account that will be connected to a “feeding” or “funding” account, being your normal bank-, credit card or debit card account. So you only once provide your personal and bank account data to Click2Pay after which you’ll receive a “PAN” number, a Personal Account Number that will, together with an ID-code, identify you as a Click2Pay paying party.

The recipient therefore will only see these codes when receiving the deposit while the rest of any personal data about the depositor is completely shielded and invisible. The payment however is instant and normally also the paid amount is immediately reduced from the depositor´s Click2Pay account balance.

To get a Click2Pay account you need to visit their website and provide your personal data as well as the information about the connected bank account. Subsequently, Click2Pay will check this data, including by withdrawing € 5 from your bank account that will be refunded in about 7 days. The company will also contact you by phone to confirm all the data you’ve provided.

Although the above described initial (online) registering procedure won’t take more than several minutes to complete, Click2Pay needs a couple of days to verify everything and only after this verification the Click2Pay customer service will contact you by phone for the last confirmations. Be aware they will verify the provided bank account on credibility and it should be noted the quite elaborate registration procedure eventually will benefit your own safety and privacy.

As soon as everything is approved of Click2Pay will provide you with your PAN and accompanying ID-code and you’ll get a so-called “Star-Rating”.

The Star Rating represents the maximum amount of money you can spend in a period of 7 consecutive days. Every registered Click2Pay user starts off with a low Star Rating , but the more you use Click2Pay to make your payments, the higher your Star Rating will get and consequently the amount of money you can spend by using the Click2Pay service.

It’s possible to already get a higher Star Rating right from the beginning but for that you’ll need to contact the Click2Pay customer service that will analyze the request for upgrading.

Depending on your country of origin Click2pay accepts various payment methods to upload funds to the account. Some of these payment methods will charge a service fee for doing so (for example, over an amount uploaded with a credit card a 3% fee is charged).

Together with your Click2Pay account it’s possible to get a “virtual” VISA card, consisting of a card number and a CVC code, which will allow you to pay for whatever kind of purchase or carry out whatever kind of payment on the World Wide Web wherever VISA is accepted.
