Players from the USA should read our main article on funding online bingo with PayPal for Americans.
Meanwhile, UK players can now make a deposit or a withdrawal in an online bingo site using paypal – it’s really possible!
Paypal, one of the top online payment solutions, has frowned on online bingo for a long time now, leaving the market open to other payment software providers like: Neteller and Ukash, in addition to credit cards like Visa Mastercard and American Express and direct wire transfers from your bank account.
Finally, this seems to be changing with bingo and gaming sites adding Paypal as a means of payment. Maybe it’s because Paypal is trying to find ways to make money, maybe it’s just a sign of the times with online bingo growing rapidly to become one of the favorite online games. For whatever reason it may be, paypal is now accepted in a number of UK bingo sites.
USA online bingo sites still do not accept paypal however, since there legality is questionable, PayPal probably doesn’t want to take any chances, so if you are an American who happens to like playing bingo online, you will still need to use one of the other methods to make a deposit – usually credit card, personal check or direct transfer from your bank account.
Paypal is also a great way to receive your online bingo winnings. If you win cash or money prizes in online bingo, you will want an easy way to get this money into your bank account. This is easy with Paypal, at least if you live in the UK, US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand or other major markets for PayPal. People living in other countries may have a harder time getting to the money they withdraw into PayPal.
