Betfair Allows UK Customers to Deposit Via Paddy Power Shops
July 24, 2017
Following customer feedback, Betfair has announced that customers can deposit cash directly into their account via any Paddy Power branch in the UK and Ireland. With over 350 branches to choose from, this gives punters a convenient option on top of making online deposits in the usual way.
There is no additional registration or opt-in required, all you need to do is walk into a Paddy Power shop and make the payment. You will need to have your Betfair account User ID to hand and a form of photo ID such as a passport or driving license. Then just let a member of staff know that you wish to pay into your Betfair account and they will carry out the transaction, providing you with a receipt upon completion.
An example of when this will be useful is wanting to place a bet with Betfair after a win at a bricks and mortar bookies. Instead of having to pay money into a bank account or ewallet to then deposit at Betfair, you can cut out the middleman and make the payment directly. It ties in nicely with the cash card at Paddy Power, which allows you to instantly access your winnings, instead of waiting for an online withdrawal to clear.
Betfair Continues To Impress
Betfair and Paddy Power are two of the most popular internet betting sites. The two companies merged in 2016 to form Paddy Power-Betfair PLC. This incentive is just one positive to come from the arrangement and is sure to please bettors that asked for the option to deposit in-store.
Starting out as Betfair Exchange in 2000, the firm has continued to make strides in a very competitive gambling industry. It’s market depth is more often than not better than other exchanges. On most occasions you will be able to lay-off your bets at Betfair, which is a contributing factor in it being a popular choice for matched betting.
