PayPal is the most popular online payment solution in the UK today. You can use it to purchase goods and services online. It’s easy to use and has great built-in buyer protection. But there is, or was a drawback. For many years, PayPal did not accept online gambling transactions. This meant that you couldn’t use it to deposit or withdraw from any online betting site. These rules have now changed, and more and more online bookies are now starting to accept PayPal for both deposits and withdrawals.
This is great news for you because there are several good reasons why you might want to use PayPal for all your online betting transactions.
Using PayPal to fund and withdraw from your online betting accounts is generally hassle-free and has the advantages listed above. However, there are a few negatives to using PayPal compared to other methods which we have listed below.
Despite PayPal being available to customers in over 200 countries, not all residents of these countries can use their PayPal accounts for betting transactions. Below is a list of countries where you are able to deposit and withdraw from betting accounts using PayPal.
PayPal is incredibly secure and is used confidently by millions of people daily around the world. When using PayPal at a betting site, you don’t need to enter your card details which increases security even more. Therefore, the only risk comes from if your PayPal login details are compromised. We always recommend setting up two-factor authentication for your PayPal account for added security.
Usually no, but there are a couple of things to consider.
The main advantage of using PayPal for your betting transactions is that withdrawals are usually a lot faster than withdrawing to your bank account which can take several days. Sometimes PayPal withdrawals are almost instant. This allows you to have less funds tied up and allows you to move money between your accounts quicker and easier.
The main disadvantage we see is that you may not be eligible for some betting promotions when using PayPal. If you are signing up to a bookmaker or making a deposit to participate in a promotion, always check that PayPal is an eligible payment method first.
