Back in 2016 Paygoo selected Wirecard as their prepaid card issuer, when we look at this choice now, its was not a good one..
So what now for Paygoo Cards?
We are looking in to this matters, but for now, we do not recommend you to buy paygoo cards, they cannot be used, and we also don’t understand how they can keep selling them, when they don’t work any more!
We are also not sure the cards work in other locations, you may not even be able to use them in the physical store..
Until Paygoo has sorted out the issues with Wirecard and their cards, use our other payment methods on the website.
See the bottom of this page, for our current payment options
We think paygoo just need some time to sort things out and cards should get back to working order. So if you cannot get your money back from the cards now, hang on to them, they might work again later..
We will update the website news once we have news it works again!
