What payment methods bookmakers offer

The thing that keeps bookmakers alive is the income from their customers through payments and deposits. So it is in the best interest of the betting provider to offer a wide range of deposit and withdrawal options, as not all of the customers have the same needs when it comes to moving money. There are a lot of factors to consider when deciding which payment option would suit you the most. To avoid unnecessary problems, you should consider the country you are depositing from, as not all the relations between countries and bookies payment methods are compatible. Also you should pay attention to the currencies that are available in particular payment method. In some cases the customer has to provide extensive documentation to verify the transactions.

Most popular deposit method is still via credit card as it is fast and easy, deposits are done automatically  and instantly. Still, many people are concerned about their credit card details and consider pre-payed cards or e-wallets, simply because you can use this payment method on several websites without compromising your credit card details. Debit cards are still very popular with the similar conditions and response time as the credit cards. If you decide to go for a bank wire the process is usually very slow with the delay of 3-5 days. The only way that is even more unpractical is the personal cheque that usually takes at least 7 days to complete the process. A lot of bookmakers also offer money transfer with Western Union services, but mostly credit/debit cards and e-wallets like PayPal and Skrill (ex moneybookers) are the most popular and reasonable choice for most online betting customers.
