PayBox is an Austrian mobile money service, which links a mobile phone number to a bank account. Users can buy goods online and in physical stores where they see the paybox logo. They can also pay for bills, transfer money and perform a range of other transactions.

Austrians use e-wallets in a fifth of all online transactions. Credit card penetration in the country is just 47%. This makes support for locally preferred Austrian alternative payment methods vital to any e-commerce strategy.

Other e-wallets operating in Austria include BitPay, HyperWallet and PaySera.
