From time to time, deposits made using prepaid debit cards can be canceled mid-transaction due to federal government oversight of offshore transactions.
Some US-based banking institutions will cancel a transaction if they think it is going to an international gambling site.
To avoid this situation, online gamblers can use MatchPay, a third-party, peer-to-peer trading company where funds from your prepaid debit card can be used to purchase vouchers from other members.
These vouchers can then be used to fund your account with cash that can be spent betting at online sportsbooks, casino sites, or at the poker tables.
Vouchers can also be purchased using other popular methods that are normally blocked from funding online gambling accounts, such as Venmo, PayPal, Zelle, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, CashApp, and more.
Prepaid Visa, MasterCard, AmericanExpress, and other popular brands of debit cards can be used to fund one of the above account types, which can then be used to fund your gambling account.
The online gambling site isn’t actually accepting payments from these vendors. MatchPay acts as a go-between, providing an exchange where members of a given gambling site can purchase vouchers.
There are also no fees attached to any transactions from MatchPay’s end, although there could be finance charges issued by one of the vendors that they accept.
In some cases, debit cards may charge a fee for online purchases or an activation fee.
A downside of depositing with MatchPay is that there is no opportunity to earn any bonus cash, as the site regards these voucher transactions as exchanging kept money. Only new money is eligible for promo dollars.
Whether you want to purchase a deposit or sell a voucher, anyone involved needs to be a member of the associated gambling site and possess a MatchPay account.
One of our favorite online betting sites is Bovada.LV. Their longevity in the industry and vast array of online casino games, sports betting options, and online poker set them apart from all others on the web.
We can say the same about any of the gambling sites that fall under the Bovada corporate umbrella. These sites include Slots.LV and Café Casino.
While MatchPay deposits can be initiated at several trusted online casinos, Bovada, Café Casino, and Slots.LV allow for uploads with embedded software.
MatchPay accounts are still required, but using MatchPay at Bovada or any sister site can be done by clicking on the associated button inside the banking suite.
The membership signup process can be initiated from within the Bovada-related deposit page. Any trades made using MatchPay are private, and the details will not be shared on any receipts or financial data.
