Though originally established in 2000 under the name EcoCard, EcoPayz was rebranded in the year 2013 and has since been offering its services to South African players. A simple to use and straightforward ewallet system, EcoPayz allows you to use the funds from your account to pay for just about anything. Once you have taken the time to register for EcoPayz, you need to add money to your EcoPayz card which allows you to make a purchase. This ensures you never spend more money than you have and keeps any money you have in your bank account separate to that in your EcoPayz account, which is great if you’re concerned about security.

Using EcoPayz is aligned to the security requirements of the top five South African banks, that is, FNB, Capitec, Absa, Nedbank and Standard Bank, and that means transferring money to EcoPayz is as simple as using your existing bank account. However, you do need to register an EcoPayz account first, an easy process that starts with a visit to the company’s website and a registration form. One of the most important parts of registering is choosing a password and entering a security question, since both of these ensure you can keep cyber threats out of your account.

One of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to casino payments is whether casinos will accept the method you choose to make a deposit. Well, rest assured that this is a very popular method, which is why many casinos accepting SA players will accept the payment method too, though it does come with one string attached. Payments need to be above R25 and the minimum withdrawal amount that most casinos add is R500. Of course, this is different depending on the casino you’re playing it, so be sure to check.

To make a quick and easy deposit, all you need to do is visit the casino cashier and choose EcoPayz as the method of deposit. Then, you need to login to your EcoPayz account using both login name and password and pick the amount you want to deposit. Withdrawals are a little bit longer and unfortunately, not all casinos are willing to withdraw to EcoPayz. However, if they do, you can expect to wait up to 72 hours for the money to reflect in your account.

EcoPayz is one of the safest methods of making online payments you could ever hope to use and though it may not be a method that was developed in South Africa, it does show a pretty unique understanding of what SA players need. In a nation in which cyber-crime has a firm hold on our finances and in which it is difficult to trust online payment gateways and service providers, using a system such as EcoPayz could not only ensure that your details are in safe hands, but also that you can make the payments you need to with none of the worry that usually comes with them. If you want safety and security in online payments, pick EcoPayz.
