Are there any fees for topping up with TWINT?

No, there are no fees. You only pay the amount that you see.

For how long is the paysafecard credit valid?

Paysafecard prepaid code customers without a paysafecard account are subject to a procurement fee of CHF 4 or the equivalent amount in the currency in which the voucher is denominated if your code has not been redeemed in full after the second month after being purchased. This fee is charged monthly until the prepaid code has been used up in full. If you would like to avoid paying fees for your paysafecard prepaid code, but do not want to redeem your paysafecard prepaid code yet, we recommend that you create a paysafecard account and top it up with your code. This means that you can save all of your paysafecard prepaid codes as credit and make use of a large number of other benefits, such as higher transaction limits.

Purchasing paysafecards via TWINT is a secure and simple solution. Please be diligent when using paysafecards. Only redeem your credit with providers that have been authorised by paysafecard. If you are unsure whether a website is trustworthy, please contact the paysafecard service team.
