eBay decided to spin-off PayPal into a separate company in 2014. From there it has developed into a true giant of the payments industry, strong enough to be a major competitor to the big banks and heavy-weight payments processors.
With over 200 million users, it is now an internet giant and it’s no surprise PayPal is also one of the most popular payments used at online casinos and bookmakers. A lot of players are looking for casinos who accept PayPal deposits.
PayPal is a huge American online payments company. eBay acquired them in 2002 and in 2015, they became a separately traded company.
They process billions in transaction amounts every year and have an established global presence plus an instantly recognisable brand.
There are lots of reasons:
Signup for an account, add bank card information, upload funds and then you have a balance that can be moved to a wider range of online casinos and betting websites.
They offer a few different services alongside the digital wallet including PayPal Access Card and PayPal.Me.
PayPal allows approved gambling merchants to use them in areas where gambling activities are legal.
PayPal doesn't exactly have its roots in the gambling industry, Skrill and NETELLER are digital wallets with a much deeper connection.
However, some of the top-rated online casinos do accept PayPal.
It’s pretty quick and straightforward. It’s also free. You just need to supply your: Name, Email Address, Chosen Password, Physical Address, Bank or Credit/Debit Card Details and Date of Birth.
Verification will be necessary for specific services, which means you'll need to supply PayPal with: Proof of Identity (a scanned copy of your passport or driving licence) and Proof of Address.
Setting it up and making payments is free. The following services are charged:
Largely yes. PayPal offers all users Buyer Protection, so if a purchased item fails to arrive, or doesn't match the seller's description, PayPal will reimburse you.
