How to deposit at betting sites with Apple Pay
Sign in to your selected bookie
Navigate to the deposit menu
Head to the banking/deposit section of the betting site. Once logged in, this function is typically available straight from the home screen or from within a 'My Account' tab or similar.
Select Apple Pay
If Apple Pay is available as a deposit method at this bookie, you can simply select it and enter the amount you wish to deposit. Many UK betting sites that support Apple Pay deposits will accept minimum deposits as low as £5.
You may be required to authenticate the transaction. You can do this by using Face ID, Touch ID, or using a passcode.
Once the transaction has completed, the funds will be in betting account instantly and you'll receive a notification confirming the transaction (plus an email invoice from Apple).
Benefits of using Apple Pay for betting
Convenient and quick
With Apple Pay users can make instant transactions with just a few taps on their iPhones, iPads, or Macs.
Apple Pay uses device-specific numbers and unique transaction codes. That means sensitive data is never shared with the bookies.
Betting site transactions via Apple Pay are displayed on bank statements with generic descriptions - great if you're not too keen on your bank statements showing deposits at bookmakers.
You can easily monitor and manage betting expenditures with Apple Pay. It's easy to access a clear record of transactions so you can stay informed about your betting activity and budget accordingly.
Like everything Apple designs, Apple Pay is as frictionless as a payment provider can be from a UX perspective.
Apple Pay withdrawals
If you use Apple Pay to deposit at UK betting sites, you may still need to provide debit card details to the bookmakers in order to withdraw funds.
Money laundering regulations in the UK mean that punters can only withdraw funds using the same method as was used to deposit funds.
Given that it is currently not possible to withdraw funds directly to an Apple Pay account, alternative (debit card) payment method details must be provided for withdrawals in this specific situation.
Apple Pay alternatives for betting
PayPal betting sites are much more common in the UK than Apple Pay sites.
PayPal is popular as an online betting deposit method for many of the same reasons as Apple Pay - there's a layer of privacy built in and withdrawals are typically very fast compared to traditional debit card or bank transfer transactions.
The fact that it's so widely accepted across UK betting sites makes PayPal incredibly handy, and there are plenty of bookies that will accept deposits of just £5 with this payment method.
Neteller's long-standing presence in the online gambling industry has solidified it as a preferred choice for many who are looking for a convenient and trusted payment solution at UK betting sites.
It has a user-friendly interface, enhanced security measures, and swift payment processing. One of the main differences between PayPal and Neteller is the fee structure: PayPal may levy charges when you receive money, whereas Neteller adds a fee when you deposit money into your account.
As with Apple Pay, Google Pay users can easily link their bank accounts or cards and make quick deposits to betting sites. Obviously, the main difference between these two e-wallets is the devices on which they are available.
Google Pay has broader compatibility across devices so more punters can use it (however, from what I can see, more sites accept Apple Pay deposits than Google Pay).
