Making ourselves more instantly available in central Europe

16 mars 2021  NEWS

Hallo Deutschland, Österreich, Nederland en België! Coucou la Belgique ! Witaj Polsko! Announcing Mullvad’s biggest payment method expansion ever: now you can top up your account with either giropay, EPS, iDEAL, Bancontact or Przelewy24.

With our ambition to be easy to use and after payment suggestions from customers (thank you!), we happily announce the addition of five European payment methods.

We reserve ourselves from any bugs and welcome you to send feedback to support@mullvad.net. Please save your cryptocurrency payment requests for another time; we are doing our best to investigate potential additions to that payment section as well.

Our five new payment methods

Timestamp is deleted 40 days after payment

These five payment methods go through Stripe, and in our no-logging of user activity policy you can read about which kind of information we store for 40 days.

Here's the information we store for payments via Stripe:

payment | account number | amount | currency | timestamp*          | stripe_charge_id*
xxxxxx  | xxxxxxxxxxxx   | 10     | EUR      | 2016-12-15 20:42:26 | xxxxxxxxx

*stripe_charge_id and the time part (hh:mm:ss) of timestamp is deleted 40 days after payment.
