PayPal and e-Wallets

17 replies • Last post

Hey, guys,

Do you still use Paypal for casinos, or for something else?

Somebody use Paypal and ecoPayz both? O Paypal and BTC? 😀

i still use paypal but not for casino deposits ...for shopping and some other transaktions.
it is still the the fastest and easiest way to buy things online and for other transaction as well.
a cashout to my bank account is free....no fee and the money is in my bank account the next day.
ecopayz need 34 days and they take 5€ fee for that transaktion.

for casino deposits i usually use ecopayz or my credit card because most casinos offer one of them
or both...
i also tryed some other options like paysafe card neosurf & muchbetter but this methods
are only one way or uncomfortable.

neteller and skrill are more then dead..you can not deposit at gambling site's any more
and online shops don't have this option at all so it is absolutly useless imo

I wish I could use PayPal for casino stuff here. Unfortunately, I don't think it'll be a possibility for me for quite some time 🙁

as far as i understand it, paypal has withdrawn from the casino sector worldwide because it is not supposed to be their image but at sportsbook deposits are still possible...
very inconsequent bullshit imo !!

Yeah I think there's some sportbooks accepting PP but I'm not using it for gambling purposes.

As vomvom said it's still the easiest option using PP for receiving or sending money online for me as well, but they have quite unfavorable currency exchange rate.

Skrill is almost useless for me too, even Betfair cut them off so don'tt any use except for buying bitcoins if I accidentally got some money there.

BTC is a good option I think cause obviously more and more casinos and bookies are willing to use it and sometimes you could be even beneficial from the rate (or not 😉 ) but generally for gambling I'm using mainly my debit card...only on trusted sites of course.

I was just reading about that the other day, the reason why paypal isnt a common option in online casinos is because PayPal is all about security and keeping their customers information safe and secure. I guess putting paypal into online gaming is seen as an unnecessary risk in the eyes of Paypal.

Paypal is absolutely restricted from use in casinos in every state in the USA, I've never seen it as an option here in Canada.

Yeah Paypal is an option in a limited number of countries, depending on local licensing laws and regulatory approval. I don't think it has much to do with customer security, rather making sure they can't lose money by getting fined by a local government.

As far as e-wallets go I pretty much have no option any more as all the major ones have blocked any gambling related transactions for Australians.

yeah but isn't it crazy...that makes ewallets like skrill and neteller absolutely useless.
paypal as the huge online shopping market as an alternative field but skrill and neteller should have been broke for a long time.

Ah well as far as I was concerned Skrill was working hard at making themselves useless for many years before that happened! So it is no great loss to me. 😐

Yeah, well said Ed, I've been using Skrill to deposit at Betfair mainly but that's not an option anymore...a few people around the world could loose their jobs because of that I guess but..

I still can use Neteller and Skrill at Betfair. I don't understand why Betfair doesn't add ecoPayz in their payment methods.

Yeah, that probably could be a good option coolsongss, let's hope they will added it sooner or later.

Yeah Paypal is only allowed in a few countries for gambling if I'm correct. I'd use Paypal now only to withdraw funds or buy something.
