Gambling in traditional card houses and casinos is a thing of the past now. Today, the focus is on online gambling. This is one industry that has literally exploded ever since it set up shop a few years back. The reach of online gambling has ensured more and more people come to visit online casinos and spend time playing there. One of the main concerns everyone who visits online casinos has is how they would be able to transfer funds securely.

Secure transfer has been the bugbear of not just the online gambling industry but of virtually every business that has an online presence and carries out online transactions. There are too many fly-by-night operators out there for players to really be worried about where their money is going and how safe it is to give out personal financial details like credit card information.

The main issue today is, therefore, not which casino to play in, but how to fund your account securely and ensure your money remains with you and is not tampered with. Today, the answer to this question is very easy: just look up the myriad online transfer facilities that are available for the purpose. There are a large number of them – Entropy, ePassporte, Firepay, NETeller, Moneybookers, and also Instadebit.

Of these different types of funds transfer systems available, Instadebit is worth mentioning, as it is a system that allows you to make payments directly from any Canadian bank account that you might have. The system uses a direct link into the Canadian banking system and then allows you to uses the funds in your account to pay for anything you may have transacted online – be it gambling at a casino or buying merchandise online.

The upside to Instadebit is there is no fee attached to it. However, there are transaction fees for the different transactions a merchant performs. Instadebit works similar to writing a check. All you need to do is register one or more of your bank accounts and enter your name, address, and ID information when withdrawing funds.

Any withdrawal you make using Instadebit appears as a check transaction in your bank statements. There are other benefits as well. For one, you do not need to fund a separate account or provide anyone with your information online; Instadebit takes care of this matter for you. Besides, if you have any doubts, or have a vague memory, about any of your transactions all you have to do is access the details online by just entering your username and password.

Instadebit has a few very interesting features that make it extremely easy to use and very customer-friendly. Some of these are listed below:

  • Registration with Instadebit is extremely easy. All you have to do is fill out a simple form.
  • It allows you to pay for all the things that you have bought in a matter of seconds.
