PayPal is a global eWallet which was established in the late 1990s and is accepted as a payment method by a large number of online betting sites.

How to bet using PayPal

PayPal is widely accepted, with online bookmakers in the United Kingdom, across Europe, and elsewhere allowing you to deposit using this popular eWallet.

Depositing to an online betting site using PayPal is very easy. Just follow these steps:

  • Log in to your bookmaker account (if you don’t yet have one, our bookmaker reviews can be used to help you decide which new betting sites you wish to join)
  • Go to the Banking or Deposit page and select PayPal as your preferred payment method.
  • Enter the amount of money you would like to deposit. At this point, you will be asked to log in to your PayPal account in order to authorise the payment (if you don't yet have a PayPal account, you can create one from the same page).

PayPal is widely accepted as a payment option and offers 25 currencies at time of writing. On this page you’ll find details of the top online betting sites that accept this eWallet.

If PayPal is not an option at the sportsbook you want to bet at, then don’t worry as we’ve got guides to all available payment methods at online betting sites in your country (providing online betting is legal) - including alternative eWallets such as Neteller, which is also popular.

Why bet with PayPal?

Using PayPal for online betting is both easy and secure, and allows you to quickly deposit and withdraw money to and from your betting account.

If you don’t already have a PayPal account, you can open one via their website. This is free to do and only takes a couple of minutes. Once you’ve created your account, you then have to link it to a payment method before it can be used for online transactions. Again, this is quick and easy, and you can choose to use a debit card, credit card or your bank account to fund your PayPal account.

As noted, PayPal currently offers in 25 different currencies.

Once you’re up and running, you can then use it to fund your betting account in the same way as you would use a debit or credit card, both for deposits and for withdrawals. It really is a simple process, and provides punters with convenience and security when it comes to online betting.

By using PayPal, you’re guaranteed quick transfers when depositing to your betting account, as well as low fees (it’s rare to see an online bookmaker charging for PayPal deposits), making it a great option. For thousands of gamblers, it is their preferred payment option for online betting.

PayPal is also a great option if fast withdrawals are important to you. We’ve seen a number of online bookmakers process PayPal withdrawals in less than 30 minutes!

If PayPal is not available in your country, you’ll be made aware of this when attempting to open an account. If this is the case and you want to deposit money to a betting account using a different method of payment – or if your preferred bookmaker does not accept PayPal - we have details of all available betting payment methods in your country.
