Unfortunately, the relationship between Australian banks and internet gambling websites is shaky and, as in American transactions, monetary interchange between VISA or MasterCard holders and internet casinos is often disallowed.
Luckily there are always alternate payment methods above and beyond even PayPal, the world’s biggest supporter of purely online electronic transactions, which pulled out support for Australia casino-based transactions three years ago.
Probably the most popular alternative for Australians is Skrill (Moneybookers), primarily due to that business’ presence on the Web since 2001. Moneybookers has prided itself on its status as “a truly global payment solution” and presents itself as “ideal for online banking in Australia.” And why not? In nine years, Moneybookers (Skrill by now) has become world-renowned for its simplicity and security. To register, all that’s need is a valid email address.
POLi, Click2Pay, Ukash, PaySafeCard and Neteller over similar services and are increasing in popularity in the country, so much so that one wonders why PayPal scaled back operations to exclude transactions from/to online casinos and other gambling portals.
An electronic bill payment service based right in Australia is bPay, with which customers can make deposits from most any sort of bank account via telephone or personal computer. Play online pokie demos with us!
