Paypal was launched in 1998, and over the years, it's grown to become a global payment processing firm. Enabling businesses and individuals to transfer money safely, Paypal has integrated protection that can help you to pay your bills and invoices with the lowest possible risk.
You don't need to pay to set up a Paypal account, and it's effortless to follow, even if you've never used it before.
Although Paypal is often used for small online businesses, the safe and protected payment process means that larger firms also favour it.
But how can you use your Paypal account to make a casino deposit? We cover all you need to know right here.
Before you spend a long time trying to figure out how to transfer the funds, you’ll need to first check out whether your chosen casino accepts Paypal.
We know just how useful Paypal is here at Foxy, so we're happy to oblige - but not all casinos are as advanced as us.
Paypal casinos aren’t yet universal, although there are more now than ever before who will accept digital payments.
When you go to your casino account, you should see a list of the acceptable payment methods you can choose from. This will confirm whether Paypal is an option.
The other thing you need to know is that each payment method has its own deposit and withdrawal limits. This means you can't just transfer £1 or £2 to the casino when you want to top up; the limit is usually around £10, but you'll need to check what the rules say. Every casino is different!
When you’ve confirmed that you can use Paypal for a deposit method, all that’s left to do is make the transfer.
As a digital means of payment, Paypal is typically instant, so the funds will show up in your account right away.
Once you’re logged into your account, navigate to the cashier area and select deposit. You’ll need to confirm the type of deposit you’re making, which in this case will be Paypal.
Choose the amount you want to deposit and enter that in the box provided. Confirm the transaction.
At this point, you will be diverted to your Paypal account, where you'll need to log in. This is perfectly normal and won't give your casino account unrestricted access to your Paypal account. The process will only provide authorisation for you to make a single transfer; future transfers from Paypal will all need to be individually requested and authorised by you.
Once you've confirmed the deposit transfer in Paypal, you'll be whizzed back to the casino, where you should see the funds in your account. This money is available to you instantly, giving you access to play.
There are a number of different payment options for online casinos, but Paypal is very popular. This is for many reasons:
● There's no cost. Setting up a Paypal account is free, and anyone can do it.
● It provides protection. The casino will never receive your bank details as there’s an extra layer of security between the payment and the end destination.
● Your Paypal account can be funded from either your debit card or your bank account. It can also be funded from a credit card, but you won't be able to use this money to play at a casino. Credit cards are no longer permitted for use.
● It's very convenient. The entire end-to-end process takes no more than a couple of clicks, so if you're midway through playing, it doesn't take long to top up.
● It’s available on your mobile. Enough said!
