How PayPal and iGaming are the perfect fit

Many of us are used to shopping and banking online and using PayPal as a method of paying for those good or services. PayPal was in fact, one of the very first ewallets, and actually started out as an ewallet for Americans.

The company specialised in eBay transactions and online gambling payment processing, and then eventually eBay acquired PayPal and stopped processing US online gambling payments back in 2002, although now that decision is being reversed.

PayPal was founded way back in 1998 and has over 169 million-member accounts in 26 currencies over 203 nations throughout the world.

In the UK alone over 20 million UK shoppers use PayPal each year so it’s not surprising that many of those people use PayPal to make a bet or wager on their favourite game as the payment method is just so easy to carry out.

For instance, if you wanted to make a bet using one of the paypal casinos choosing PayPal to deposit into your personal account is both simple and convenient as once you have set up your account you can pay for you bets knowing that the method is both safe and protected as PayPal does not share any financial details.

Another great plus when using PayPal is that with just one account you can use any of your devices to make your bet, so there will never be a chance that you are going to miss a great game because you are not at home or at your computer.

Setting up a PayPal account is free and below are the simple steps you need to carry out to do so.

  • Firstly, choose an account that will suit your needs. You can choose between a Personal Account that allows you to shop and pay for goods and services online. This account is the one that is suitable for depositing funds in order to have a bet online.
  • Next you will have to fill in some personal details like your country of residence, your name and a current email address. You will then have to create a password and confirm it again.

It’s that simple!

Using PayPal is also a very simple process as there is no having to enter any financial details. All you need to do (once you are registered with your chosen site) is go to the payment options and hit PayPal as your choice, then simply pay for your deposits just like you would for any other goods or services. Your account will be immediately credited with the amount and then you can make your bet from any device that you own, no need to rush home so you don’t miss that important game.
