Why use Apple Pay for online betting?

There are many advantages to using Apple Pay as your primary payment method for online betting. Mainly its simplicity, as you simply require an Apple device (iPad, iPhone) and a debit card connected to your Apple ID. To approve a payment, you simply need to use your Touch ID or Face ID.

Apple Pay is considered to be an e-wallet, and similar to other e-wallets, such as Paypal, Neteller or Skrill, you will not need to share any card details with the bookmaker. Apple Pay serves as an intermediary.

If you have Apple Pay set up for other purchases, such as contactless payments, it is therefore easy to prefer Apple Pay to your debit cards when depositing at online betting sites.

The disadvantages of Apple Pay are that you cannot withdraw money from your online betting account. You will have to make a bank transfer instead.

Apple pay pros and cons for betting

PROS ✅

  • Instant deposits
  • No need to share bank details with bookie
  • Simple to use

CONS ❌

  • Cannot yet withdraw with Apple Pay

Apple Pay for sign up offers

When it comes to deposits and withdrawals at online betting sites, the operator is required by law to make sure that the money comes from the account holder. Therefore, when it comes to sign up offers, unless the payment method makes it clear that the money comes from the correct person, the bookies will not hand out any offers with the first deposit. This is the case for e-wallets, such as Neteller or Skrill for example.

However, Apple Pay is usually a payment method where bookies are satisfied with the verification of the money deposited. Therefore, normally, welcome offers are given to punters depositing with Apple Pay.

But make sure to check this with your Apple Pay bookmaker, as it is not an approach used by all bookies.

How to deposit money using Apple Pay

If you have your Apple Pay set up, it is arguably the easiest way to deposit at online betting sites.

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, when asked for the payment method, choose Apple Pay.
  2. Select the amount you want to transfer and which card you want to use.
  3. Accept the transaction with touch or face ID and you are done. Simple and quick.

How to withdraw money using Apple Pay

Unfortunately Apple Pay does not support withdrawals, which really is the only flaw with the payment method. Instead, you will have to make your withdrawals via bank transfer. This might take a day longer than other payment methods, but is of course a secure option.

What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay was first introduced in 2014, as Apple wanted to make online payments easier. In recent years it has also been upgraded to include contactless payments at physical shops, such as the grocery store.

In essence, what it does is making your credit/debit card digital. Instead of the physical card, your iPhone acts a the card. And instead of the pin code, you verify transactions with you fingerprint or face ID.
