BPay is a service available across Australia and New Zealand that is used to pay bills electronically, directly from the user’s bank account. This service is available nation-wide, and is extremely safe and secure, and involves the transfer of funds directly from the user’s bank account, which means that there is no chance to overshoot the budget intended.
There are a number of different ways to use BPay, which makes it versatile and therefore even more convenient to use by players. The BPAY service has no transfer limit, and so it is possible to send large amounts of money to your online casino account using BPay. BPay is a service that most people in the country are very familiar with, since it has been around for over a decade, and has affiliations with most banks across Australia and New Zealand.
How does BPay Work?
The mechanism of using BPay is very simple. The user simply uses phone or net banking, and specifies an account from which to withdraw funds to be deposited into the casino account. Once this is achieved, users can then safely, quickly and securely send money from their bank accounts to the casino’s account.
In order to make a deposit into one’s casino account using BPay, first the user must set up the service with their local bank. This process takes a little time to activate, but once it is activated, it will be linked with the user’s bank account, and so making payments is much simpler.
In order to make payments into a casino website, the player notes down the casino’s BPay ID, which is available at the Banking Options tab at any online casino. The player then visits his/her secure banking website, where the casino’s information is duly entered into the BPay tab on the website, and the amount to be withdrawn is chosen. The money is then immediately transferred to the user’s casino account. When making a BPay deposit, the player will be required to enter the casino ID and some other checks that ensure that there is no chance for identity theft.
Unfortunately the BPay method is not available for withdrawals from the casino account. In order to make a withdrawal, the player must choose another option like bank transfer or credit card
, or even one of the many e-wallet services.
BPay Pros and Cons
BPay is a convenient method to make deposits for casino users across Australia and New Zealand. Unfortunately it is not available for players outside these countries and often many casinos will not offer this service. Except for these disadvantages, the BPay method is probably the ideal method to use since it can be extremely efficient and time saving. In addition, this method is also very secure, since the bank’s website is the one that is used. The player unfortunately will reveal some amount of personal information to the casino accounts, but this is usually in an encrypted manner, and so there is not much concern on that front. It is also a good method to transfer large sums of money to a casino account.
