Minimizing Risks with Online Gaming Sites

or copy the link

One of the most common concerns for many who regularly play on online gaming sites is the worry that comes with secure financial transactions. Let’s face it; while it would be tempting to spend a few dollars on online gambling sites using your credit card, you always think about whether or not your personal financial information can be compromised if ever it falls into the wrong hands. As a consequence, the use of credit cards becomes a deterrent rather than a motivation; not many would want to use their credit cards to online gaming sites. As a result, they end up playing altogether.

Paypal casinos are very handy in these circumstances. No doubt, you are already familiar with Paypal, that site owned by Ebay which proudly calls itself the “most beloved way to pay and get paid.” Paypal works because it is one of the more secure ways to pay online without risking your personal information. On Paypal, you simply give your Paypal ID which is essentially the email address you use to log-into Paypal and all the transactions can be done hassle-free. There’s now no need to share your information to online gambling sites while still being able to pay for your online commitments without any problems.

By extension, this feature becomes one of the most important considerations that online gamers must think about when selecting online gaming sites. Specifically, would you rather sign up to a site by giving your credit card information or wouldn’t it be more practical to use Paypal instead? Unfortunately, not all online gaming clubs accept the use of Paypal so this becomes a differentiating factor between and among sites. You can dismiss those who don’t allow the use of Paypal accounts for funding your gaming accounts in favor of those that do.

So how would you know that a site accepts Paypal or not? First, you can check the website “payment methods” and look for the Paypal logo. Alternatively, you can ask customer service representatives if they accept Paypal. You can also read reviews from other users to ensure that the payment method indeed works and is not just there for display purposes.

So what are you waiting for? With Paypal, gone are the days of risky financial transactions online. Paypal is the world’s most beloved way to pay and get paid; so pay and get paid via Paypal today.

    Well, I have paypal money that a friend sent to me, and well how do I use it?

    Basically I used paypal to pay for some online services that weren’t carried out to my satisfaction. I’ve tried resolving the problem with the company via email but they can not offer any fair compensation at all. So is there a way I can get my money back if I used paypal?

    How can I change the PayPal account linked to my ebay sellers account? My buyer has submitted payment, but it went to an e-mail address that is not linked to any paypal account. I do have a paypal account, but don’t know how to verify my Ebay sellers account is linked to it.

    Didn’t even know that Paypal takes anything. I know Ebay takes about 10 percent, and if Paypal takes a ridiculous amount then I’m about to cancel my sale because this is just a rip off. I know that both companies, more so Ebay is helping you sell something but Paypal should not get a large percent since there not the one’s hosting the sale but ebay is. I’m expecting Paypal to be something small maybe 2 or 3 percent at most.
    Thanks for that, still kind of pissy about it because that means 13 percent of my sale on my item is going to these companies. Kind of sickening, but I have no choice because listing on Craigslist is a hassle and I probably will make more money on Ebay in the end. Oh well, I just have to tough it up and realize that they are a business and they’re in it to make money too.

    I am a teenager and I just made a paypal account and I don’t have a bank account or a credit card. I have a website that gives free money and I have enough money to redeem it on paypal. I want to use paypal to buy things from ebay but to do that I have to verify my paypal account. Is their anyway to verify it without having a bank or credit card. I need it really badly please help me out.

    In my paypal account I keep a small amount of funds for the odd purchase off ebay etc. Recently though when i’ve paid for purchases the money has come direct from my bank account, completely ignoring the funds already in the paypal account which were more than enough to cover the small transaction. Now I’m left waiting endlessly for funds to clear

    Why are they doing this?

    To verify the paypal account is necessary to link our credit card or our bank account.
    I added my bank account to paypal. They say that by doing so the paypal account is verified.
    But so far nothing has happened.

    Does anyone know how is the verification process? How long until the account is verified? The paypal will get in touch with me?

    I have worked out that this is the file on my game CD that doesn’t work so I was wondering if anyone new where I could download it from to see if I can install it that way.
    Just wanted to say I already have the game, I have installed it once before but just had to re-start our computer to factory default so am having to re-install the game but after doing some digging have found out that the fullbuild0.package is the file that is stopping me re-install it. If I can download this I can install it without using the disk.

    I have a Paypal account for my debit card, but I’m a little confused about how exactly it works. Say I was to be paid online through Paypal, does whatever the amount I receive transfer to my debit card or does it all stay on Paypal?

    I have $76.95 in my PayPal account and I have a debit card linked to my account with $140.98. I am buying something off eBay that is more than my debit card ($165.98). Would PayPal automatically use what is in my PayPal account as backup or vice versa?
    Yes, the $76 dollars is my PayPal balance. However, I have no bank account linked to my PayPal account. All that is linked is my Visa Gift Debit card. Would this still work? I had forgotten to mentioned that it was the only thing linked to my account.

    Even so, without a bank account, my account would be unverified, however, the seller is fine with that as I explained to them that I am who I am as what my debit card says. (Name, address, info, etc.)

    Even without a linked bank account, would the Visa Gift Debit be used as backup?
