Deposits and Withdrawals using iDebit
iDebit is a secure online payment method enabling users to pay through online banking. It’s easy to use, offers instant access to funds, features bank-level security and boasts low transaction fees.
Though catering primarily to residents of Canada, the service is also available in the US, Australia, New Zealand, UK and Sweden. iDebit acts as an intermediary between your bank and the online casino, thus helping you bypass restrictions imposed by local financial institutions without comprising on safety.
To pay with iDebit, all one needs is a bank account and online banking, which many of us undoubtedly already have. One does need to sign up for the service, but the process is quick, easy and free, with the Guest Checkout feature as a convenient option for first-time users. Deposits are processed instantly, and no matter which way the money moves, it’s easy to execute transactions within the familiar internet banking environment.
iDebit users can pay for goods and services directly from their online banking accounts. The provider has tried to simplify the process as much as possible, so one can either start off by opening an iDebit account or skip pre-preregistration and quickly sign up during their first transaction.
In order to use this service, you’ll have to provide personal information such as your full name, address, phone number and date of birth. Though clients can choose which account to remove funds from, they won’t be allowed to split a single transaction between different bank accounts. When logged in, users can view their complete transaction history.
Payments made via iDebit cannot be canceled, so if there are any issues with your purchase, you’ll have to contact the seller directly and ask for a refund. FAQ list available on iDebit website is bound to answer most of your questions and further information can be obtained by contacting customer service team via Live Chat, email or a Canadian phone number.
Clients must be at least 18 years old and need to own a bank account with access to online banking at one of the supported banks - Bank of Montreal, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Desjardins, National Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, Scotiabank, Simplii Financial or TD Canada Trust.
While signing up won’t cost you anything, iDebit will charge 1.5 CAD/USD for online banking payments and 2 CAD/USD for transferring funds from your iDebit balance to your bank account. Making a payment from the current iDebit balance is free, and same goes for money transferred from a merchant to one’s iDebit balance.
Safety is ensured thanks to existing online banking security measures and those implemented by iDebit. Banking details are visible only to the player and their bank; iDebit doesn’t store them and they are never shared with the casino operator. Personal information travels encrypted by 128-bit technology and thus remains unavailable to fraudsters. The provider’s servers are located in an area with restricted access and protected by security guards at all times.
To gamble online for real money, playing slots or games, iDebit is a good way to make a deposit. To do this, you’ll need to select iDebit on the casino’s banking page, enter the desired amount, and log in to iDebit (if you’ve previously opened an account) or use Guest Checkout option.
Next step is to select your bank, login with your internet banking credentials, and approve the payment. Money is transferred in real time and the casino receives instant confirmation, thus making it possible to gain access to your gambling budget within minutes.
If you get lucky and wish to request a withdrawal, preregistering an iDebit account is a must. Only then will you be able to use the same method to cash out, providing the operator allows it. Withdrawal process is almost identical to the one described above and it may take up to 5 days in total before profits show up in your account.
Security measures used by iDebit combined with those implemented by banks should be enough to put your mind at ease when it comes to safety of your funds and personal information.
Though there are some fees involved, they are flat and pretty low compared to other online payment options. A bigger issue might be finding a gaming site willing to accept iDebit deposits, and an even bigger one detecting those which also list it as a withdrawal option.
