UseMyServices (UPD as at 2018: now is known as www.topmeup.ca) is an online intermediary payment system that works around the world and is extremely popular in both Canada and the United States. It was launched as a payment solution way back in 2002 from Toronto, Ontario and allows real-time debit transactions from one bank account to another. What makes it incredibly private and secure is the fact that no credit card or banking information is shared with the merchant whom you are purchasing from. This means that all of your information is kept confidential regardless of where you conduct your transactions. All transactions that are made from one bank account to another is treated as a debit transaction, ensuring that there are no fees or caveats with limited transaction ceilings.
Instadebit (www.instadebit.com) is an online electronic wallet system, available to all Canadians who bank with a Canadian financial institution. Similarly to other online e-wallet payment systems, Instadebit allows users to attach one verified bank account, which they can then use to either fund their Instadebit Canada account or use directly through Instadebit to pay for online purchases. Instadebit is affiliated with thousands of online merchants including many online Canadian casinos, which makes it a very secure banking option for those who do not want to deposit funds via a prepaid option.
iDebit (www.idebitpayments.com) works similarly to other online banking intermediaries. It allows you to directly pay merchants from your bank account. It is popular in Canada because it works with the Bank of Montreal, Canadian Imperial Bank, Desjardins, National Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, Scotiabank, TD Canada Trust and even Simplii Financial. In addition to being compatible with all major banks, you don’t have to pre-register for an account with iDebit to begin using their service. This means that you can check out as a guest. Not giving away any of your financial or personal information – that what makes iDebit so secure and instant.
When it comes to online casinos and gambling, there are tons of different payment options available to individuals. From prepaid cards, to credit cards, to bank wire transfers and even third-party payment processors. However, all of these payment options either have limitations due to country laws, or are not readily available across the globe. With this said, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Litecoin and BitcoinCash are becoming a popular alternative to making casino gambling transactions.
Koho (www.koho.ca) is a new online prepaid payment system that is available exclusively to Canadian residents with the exception of the province of Quebec. The Koho card is a reloadable prepaid card that is accepted everywhere Visa cards are accepted. This means that Canadians can use the card at thousands of online and brick and mortar merchants without incident. What makes this card so viable for Canadians and specifically millennials, is that there are almost no fees associated with using, activating and replacing the card in addition to a lot of other features that prepaid cards just don’t typically have.
