Online cash payments provider, Ukash announced Friday that online gambling group Betfair has signed up to its popular service, which enables customers to use cash to transact online with betting companies.
Betfair customers who pass strict verification processes will be able to make cash deposits into their accounts through Ukash vouchers, which are available from over 50,000 sale points in the UK, with a reverse process being available to make cash withdrawals. The service is available on both desktop and mobile.
David Hunter, CEO, Ukash said “Betfair was the world’s first successful betting exchange, and is a company respected for its innovation and values. They are a great British success story and this makes our cooperation even more satisfying.”
Ian Chuter, group operations director at Betfair, said “Ukash offers a secure and easy method of deposit and withdrawing, supporting our wider on-going aim of making it easier for customers to transact with Betfair.”
Ukash codes are purchased with cash in retail outlets such as shops and petrol stations. The unique 19 digit codes can then be used to pay directly on thousands of websites that accept Ukash transactions worldwide.
