PayPal re-enters the online gaming segment for the first time since 2003

Nowadays, online payments are the easiest and fastest methods of payment, either for customers or for businesses, all over the world. In 2003, PayPal stopped supporting online gaming in the United States, even though it was one of the biggest transactors for online gaming sites at that time. A few onling gambling websites have started accepting PayPal as a payment method for online casinos.



In September of 2015, a couple of U.S. online gambling websites like and started to accept PayPal payments. The use of PayPal will make transactions way easier for gamblers, allowing them to instantly credit their account instead of waiting a couple of days for their check to arrive.



With concerns over online payment considering “identity theft” and “online fraud” emerging, PayPal protects its customers’ accounts with the latest anti-fraud technology and a team of specialists working on security issues. Customers’ accounts are tracked for suspicious activity, so payments via PayPal are safer than most credit cards.
