Click2Pay is among the most popular online poker-related money-transfer methods. Click2Pay’s big draw seems to be the one-step payment process, which basically means that Click2Pay users don’t have to funds their accounts before actually committing money to an online poker room or an online casino. Funds transfers are handled in real time, right from the cashier page of the online poker room.
Setting up a Click2Pay account is relatively simple: players have to access Click2Pay.com where they can register. As soon as they fill out the registration form and submit it, they’re called by a Click2Pay representative who will verify the provided information and who will also gain an understanding of the client’s spending limits, based on which the appropriate ‘star rating’ is allotted. Players are required to select a funding method during registration. The accepted methods cover a wide range: Maestro, VISA, Ukash, GiroPay, Wire Transfer and electronic funds transfers.
Click2pay’s biggest drawback is the fact that it currently does not accept transfers from US customers on account of the US laws which make it illegal for payment processors to transfer gambling and online poker related funds. The legalization and regulation of online poker will probably re-open the US market for Click2Pay though. There are a few other countries from which Click2Pay does not accept customers either.
The main advantage offered by Click2Pay is that is does not require customers to fund their accounts beforehand. As soon as the player makes his/her deposit at the site, the transfer is processed in real time and Click2Pay then fetches the needed amount from the funding method selected by the player upon registration. To make a long story short: one doesn’t have to keep money locked up in his/her Click2Pay account in order to be able to make deposits at a moment’s notice. Money can be withdrawn from Click2Pay via check or via the Click2Pay debit card. For withdrawals, there is a $10 fee.
