Registering and Setting Up an Account
You must first register on their website, this can be done simply and for free. Fill out the forms on the website with your personal information and email address. Once you have registered, you must fund your account. You will then need to visit the sportsbook you have selevted and visit the cashier section of that site. Enter the amount that you wish to deposit, your EcoCard number and your password. Generally, funds will be transferred for immediate use into your account.
The Pluses of Using this Banking Option
You are not required to provide bank account details or credit card details in order to be able to use EcoCard. This helps to keep your financial information safe and secure. Your details are also highly secure with the use of SSL data encryption.
You will not be subjected to credit checks before you can use your card and you do not risk having your payment rejected.
Because it must first be funded by your bank account or credit card before you use it, it is essentially a prepaid card. This means that when you fund your sportsbook account, the account is being funded by available funds and the transaction will therefore be processed and the funds available immediately.
As long as the betting site you are playing at accepts EcoCard you will be able to use it from anywhere in the world, using your chosen currency, to fund your account.
