List of casinos that support QIWI transactions
Qiwi specifically refers to Qiwi Wallet, an electronic payment system created at the end of 2007. This service falls under the umbrella of Qiwi PLC, an instant payment operator that is supported by oligarch Alisher Usmanov and his mail.ru group as well as the Japanese firm Mitsui & Co. It mainly focuses on the market of the Russian Federation.
QIWI payments at online casinos
At the end of 2012, the company operated 11 million virtual wallet accounts, thousands of cash machine terminals and kiosks, and realised revenue of $293 million. The company claims that over 2,000 service providers accept it’s service, and several of its products are co-branded with visa, providing additional security and greater access to merchants across the world.
According to its website, the service is already available in 20 different countries spread out all over the world, including Argentina, Brazil, Belarus, Chile, China, Colombia, Demoratic Republic of the Congo, Georgia, Hungary, India, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Krgystan, Latvia, Malaysia, Moldova, Panama, Peru, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Ukraine, United States, and Vietnam.
Opening a Qiwi account is fairly straightforward: Go online and simply register. You can then top up your account using a bank account, mobile phone, or one of their many terminals. The procedure is fairly easy and the company’s list of merchants accepting the service seems to grow by the day.
It is difficult to find any real drawbacks to using Qiwi except that it may not be offered in your country of residence. The company does not have any noticeable blemishes against it and it’s co-offering with Visa is a pretty strong voucher of its legitimacy and reach. Given this year’s $884 million initial public offering on the NASDAQ exchange, it may end up being quite the threat to more established services like PayPal, Neteller, and Skrill.
