Due to new legal regulations in Austria we decided to work at the World Bodypainting Festival with a cashless payment system to conform to all new legal requirements.
All drinks and food stalls in the entire Bodypaint City can exclusively be paid only with the WBF PAYCARD. All visitors are asked to load money onto our WBF PAYCARD via cash, bank card or credit card directly at the ticket counter. This cashless technology offers many advantages also to you as a guest and makes the paying process much more smooth, fast, easy and safe. And it avoids loads of wasted paper receipts.
WBF PAYCARD: The WBF PAYCARD allows you to pay cashless on site similar as paying with the bank card - but it's much more easy and safe.
Partner: We are working together with the Swiss company AdvancePay. The company is market leader in this branch and guarantees absolute safety, big experience and Know How.
Loading station: At our loading station you can load your money onto your WBF PAYCARD. There you can also get your rest paid out in Cash from your PAYCARD. If you have any questions to the system please talk to our crew in the loading station or to the bar staff. They are happy to help you.
Card Number: Every WBF PAYCARD has a unique card number on its back. If you lose you PAYCARD you can block your PAYCARD with providing this number at the main loading stations. They our stuff will help you to transfer your money to a new card. Please be aware that it is absolutely necessary to know your card number!!
Invoice: When you return your PAYCARD, you will get one receipt with all your consummations listed. We do not give out a receipt after each consummation. This avoids loads of wasted paper.

Another advantage is the blocking function. If you lose your wallet you can only hope that someone brings it back.
