"In this digital age, consumers are increasingly aware of the risks they are taking when shopping online, the threats of phishing, cloning and identity theft involved in releasing personal information. The secure cashU pre-payment system cancels the risks consumers face when spending online and also protects young gamers who don't have access to bank accounts or credit cards", said Martin Waldenstrom, CEO, cashU.

According to cashU, the Middle East and Africa will experience the highest internet traffic growth in the next four years at 51%, with internet gaming expected to grow at an average compound rate of 39% in the same time frame.

The cashU pre-paid system does not require a bank account or credit card, meaning the younger gaming generation - which comprises a large percentage of online users - can gain access safely.

According to the company, 30% of cashU customers use their pre-paid services to pay for online gaming services and it serves more than half a million online users making payments to more than 7,000 merchant sites.
