Why can’t I deposit using PayPal?
Customers who use a MasterCard or credit card to pay via PayPal may find problems making deposits. If the problem depositing via PayPal persists, please register your card in My Card Details and deposit directly into Betfair.
If any funds in your PayPal account have been generated by sales on eBay, you will be unable to transfer these funds to your Betfair account, as this is deemed a third party payment.
If you have, or have previously used an American Express or Amex card on your PayPal account, you will be unable to fund your Betfair account via PayPal.
You may have restrictions in place on your Paypal account that will limit the amount you can transfer before completing PayPal's customer verification process.
You can trust Betfair with your card details: Betfair protects sensitive customer data using SSL encryption during transmission and uses 128-bit SSL Verisign Class 3 Certificates.
Please be aware that the laws in the UK have changed, meaning that all betting companies will no longer be able to accept deposits or top-ups to your accounts from Credit Cards. For more information, click here.
