EcoPayz used to be known as EcoCard, and has been a leading e-wallet solution for online gamblers, in particular Canadians, since 2000. The company is owned by British e-money issuer, PSI-Pay Ltd, and is regulated by the UK Financial Services Authority. Since its re-branding, EcoPayz has widened its scope to accommodate more payment solutions comprising of an EcoAccount, EcoCard and EcoVirtual card services.
EcoPayz is essentially an electronic wallet that is linked to an EcoAccount. It enables users to upload funds to their account and make instant internet transfers to and from EcoPayz vendors. Transactions can be made in multiple currencies, either online or via smartphone.
EcoAccounts are divided into different tiers dependant on usage that range from Classic, Silver, Gold, Platinu and VIP. Loftier ranking members enjoy higher transferral limits, extra features, and reduced transaction fees as incentives.
As one of the longest standing e-wallets available, EcoPayz’s trustworthiness is beyond reproach. Strict security measures such as SSL digital encryption are in place to comply with the PCI (Payment Card Industry) and DDS (Data Security Standards). To top it off, EcoPayz carries a certification from the Thawte Certification Authority that assures all personal information is safely stored at a separate location and cannot be compromised.
Most gambling sites that accept EcoPayz do not charge any withdrawal fees.
An EcoAccount is opened via the EcoPayz website – simply fill in the form and follow the easy verification steps. The process only takes a few minutes and your account is immediately ready for use once you have responded to the activation email. Note: Residents of some countries may experience limited use of their EcoAccount, and may not be able to use it to pay for internet gambling.
Paying into an online casino account is easy. Go on to the casino’s banking or cashier page and find the tab marked “e-wallets” under payment options. Select EcoPayz and you will be automatically redirected to the EcoPayz website from where you follow the instructions to complete your payment.
Withdrawing your winnings through EcoPayz can be done with an EcoCard that is linked to your EcoAccount. The process happens the same way as if you were making a deposit. Depending on where you live the funds could appear in your account instantly, or take up to 2 days.
