Using Paypal for Deposit at Cricket betting sites

Start betting on cricket online using the most popular and hassle-free payment processor.

PayPal is one of the most popular, trusted and widely-used online payment services. With PayPal, you can not only make payments to online stores and transfer money to others but also make deposits to your online sports betting accounts with ease. All you need to do is create an account with this e-wallet and add some money into that account for sending it somewhere else.

Why Choose PayPal as Deposit Option?

PayPal offers several features that set it apart from the other deposit methods. To begin with, one of the primary reasons why it has continued to be a hit among punters is that it is a highly reputed and reliable online payment processor that facilitates instant transfer of funds to a betting site. Unlike a few other deposit methods, the transactions made with PayPal are fast and you don't have to wait for them to show up in your betting account.

Withdrawal of winnings is quite a hassle-free process too. All it takes is just a few seconds to transfer the amount you have won from your betting account to your PayPal account. What's more! You just need to enter your registered email address and password for sending and receiving money. This makes transfers a lot more convenient in addition to being safe as you won't be sharing your bank account/card details with the various sportsbooks. So your privacy is maintained at all times. And since PayPal is accessible from both computers and mobile phones, you can make secure transactions from anywhere and at just about any time of the day.

Setting up an Account with PayPal

It's very easy to set up a PayPal account and you can have your own at no time at all by following the below mentioned steps.

Step 01 Go to PayPal Website or Open the App

You can create your PayPal account from the company's website or you can even download the PayPal application for free from the app store on your device. It takes roughly the same amount of time for creating an account from either.

Step 02 Click the 'Sign Up' Button

On the hompage, click either 'Sign Up for Free' in the middle of the screen or 'Sign Up' in the upper-right corner to initiate the registration process. You will then be given two account types to choose from - Personal Account and Business Account. We recommend you to go for the former.

Step 03 Set Your Email and Password

After selecting the 'Personal Account' option, you will need to set your preferred email and password on the next screen. Make sure to provide a valid email ID as you will be needing it later on for the verification of your PayPal account. Also keep in mind to set a strong password so that your account cannot be accessed by anyone except you.

Step 04 Provide Your Personal Information

The next screen will display a form which will require you to fill in some personal details such as name, address and contact number. To progress to the next step, tick the checkbox at the bottom that acknowledges PayPal's terms and conditions.

Step 05 Enter Your Credit/Debit Card Details

The next screen will prompt you to provide your credit/debit card details which will be required afterwards for verifying your PayPal account. If you don't want to input your card details at this moment, you can proceed further by clicking 'I'd rather link my bank first'.

Step 06 Provide Your Bank Account Details

To be able to receive money and transfer it back to your bank, you will need to have your bank account linked with Paypal. This is an optional step and you can skip it altogether if you don't intend to link your bank account now. Clicking on 'I'll link my bank later' will take you to the next screen.

Step 07 Apply for PayPal Credit

You will be prompted to sign up for PayPal Credit before arriving at the summary page of your newly created account. This is again an optional step which you can leave by simply clicking 'No thanks'. However if you do want to continue with it, you are advised to read all the terms and conditions carefully before applying.

Step 08 Verify Your PayPal Account

In order to receive money in your PayPal account and to transfer money from this account to your bank, you will need to verify your PayPal account. After you have linked your bank account or credit/debit card to your PayPal account, you will receive a small amount of money from PayPal in your bank account or card. Confirming the receipt of this amount will verify your account and enable you to access all the associated features.

Depositing Money in Your PayPal Account

Please note that you cannot use your credit card to deposit money in your PayPal account but you can always fund it using your linked bank account. Here's how you can do it:

1. Log in to your PayPal account and then click the 'Add Money' icon located under your PayPal balance.

2. Select your bank account from which you want to transfer money (if you have linked multiple bank accounts with PayPal). Enter the deposit amount and then click 'Add'.

3. Transactions could take a while to complete depending on your PayPal usage and your bank account. You can check when the transaction will be reflected in your PayPal balance by first clicking the 'Activity' button on top of the screen and then clicking the transaction in progress. The expected clearing date will be displayed on the screen.
