If you're looking for bookmakers that accept PayPal in New Zealand then you've come to the right place!
It may not be a long list, but the two betting sites below accept New Zealand players and offer PayPal as a deposit and withdrawal method.
PayPal Betting Sites
For more information about PayPal sports betting in New Zealand continue reading. Below you'll also find out more about using PayPal on both Ladbrokes and Sportsbet.
✅ PayPal Betting: The Good News
The good news is that two of the best New Zealand Betting Sites accept PayPal for deposits and withdrawals.
PayPal makes getting money in, and out, of your betting account easy and fast which means that you can get back to placing your bets and making sweet dollar bills.
❌ PayPal Betting: The Bad News
The most obvious downside to the betting sites that accept PayPal in New Zealand is that there are only two of them.
Another drawback about Ladbrokes and Sportsbet is that they are based in Australia which means that they only offer Australian Dollars. This means that any deposits and withdrawals that you make will have a small currency fee associated.
Your New Zealand dollars will be converted automatically but this is still a tad annoying considering all of the other betting sites that we feature on our site have New Zealand dollars available for Kiwis.
However, if you have an Australian bank account or Australian dollars, you don't need to worry.
Despite what you may read elsewhere online, PayPal is only available to New Zealanders on Australian based betting sites that use AUD, not on New Zealand Betting Sites that offer NZD.
Some of the other downsides are that we are not allowed to advertise Ladbrokes bonuses on this website and that Sportsbet does not have a specific welcome bonus for Kiwis. Instead, they give New Zealand punters weekly free bets, bonuses and other promotions. These offers are about as lucrative as they get but we still appreciate the betting site bonuses that other New Zealand betting sites give Kiwis.
Bookmakers that accept PayPal
The following bookmakers accept PayPal and are available for New Zealanders to use.
Note that both of these betting sites are based in Australia so while they accept New Zealand players, all PayPal payments will be automatically converted to Australian Dollars.
Unfortunately, there are no betting sites in New Zealand that offer PayPal and New Zealand dollars due to PayPal's restrictions in New Zealand.
#1 PayPal Betting Site
✅ Accepts PayPal
Sportsbet is another top option for all your New Zealand racing and sports bets. Sportsbet may not advertise a sign-up bonus (due to Australian law), however, they do offer plenty of weekly promotions including Bonus Bets, Power Plays, Early Payout Offers, Million Dollar Tipping and Multi Bonuses. Sportsbet's racing section also has an extensive statistics and tips section for all NZ and Australian races. Sportsbet is Australia's favourite bookmaker and its no wonder given all these great features, and the fact that they accept PayPal as a payment method.
#2 PayPal Betting Site
✅ Accepts PayPal
Not only does Ladbrokes offer Kiwi punters the option of using PayPal for all of their betting deposits and withdrawals but Ladbrokes is one of the worlds oldest and safest bookies. Ladbrokes was founded in 1886 and we think that it has an especially strong selection of Australian sporting markets for the AFL, NRL, Super Rugby and cricket matches. Because they are based in Australia Ladbrokes also has an awesome selection of New Zealand racing markets.
How to use PayPal on Betting Sites
PayPal is undoubtedly the most popular eWallet when it comes to making online payments, and receiving online deposits, whether you are shopping, betting, or doing anything money-related online.
Using PayPal on the New Zealand betting sites that accept it is simple and painless.
To use PayPal on a sports betting site you will need to:
- Sign-up with one of the two PayPal betting sites on this page
- Go to the Deposit/Payment Section and select PayPal as a deposit method
- Enter your desired deposit amount (you will then be transferred to the PayPal log-in page)
- Log-in to you PayPal account and approve the payment
- Easy as!
The process for withdrawing from a betting site using PayPal is basically the same. Just select how much you want to withdraw, choose PayPal as your withdrawing account and then confirm.
In general, deposits are instant and withdraws are also very quick (although in some cases they will take up to 48 hours).
