Another one of the many online payment service providers is Sofort. Although it is not as popular as traditional variations like PayPal or debit and credit cards, it has on its part, proven effective in the facilitation of online transactions.
Sofort was established in 2005 to serve as an online payment service provider for the German population of online users and merchants that were looking for means to send and receive funds over the Internet. The service it offers is literally likened to the reliability of a German Volkswagen. One fact about Sofort is its positioning as a middleman between you and your local bank, thereby, shielding your banking details away from prying eyes.
Sofort soon became a force to reckon with in the German payment system, especially with the recognition as the foremost Internet payment gateway in Germany. It currently processes over 2 million transactions on a monthly basis with a user base of over 25,000 online stores and other online service providers, including online casinos.
Sofort has its focus on the Western and Central European countries, including Germany, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium, Slovakia, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, the UK, and The Netherlands.
How to Register
Visit the website and provide the required details to register an account. The account usually comes with a two-layer security measure (two-factor authentication), which is meant to protect your account against malicious uses. These security measures are a Personal Identification Number (PIN) code, which doubles as your username and password, and a Transaction Authentication Number (TAN) code, which functions as the second security layer.
Depositing Money in an Online Casino Using Sofort
The rule is to locate and register/sign up for an account in an online casino/operator that supports the use of Sofort as a payment method. The next step is to navigate to the cashier/payment page and select from the list of payment options. Enter the desired amount you wish to deposit and choose your online banking service provider, which you must have specified during your registration. You will be redirected to the Sofort website/payment platform where you will enter the amount you wish to deposit, your PIN and TAN codes that are provided by your bank via an SMS. If successful, the funding to your online casino account would be facilitated within 40 seconds.
To enable withdrawals from an online casino using Sofort, you must have earlier made a deposit using Sofort. The procedure is the same as the deposit, and you may not need to enter more details, because the casino stored your details during the initial deposit.
Sofort is not only viable but also facilitates online casino funding and withdrawal of funds in a short while. The steps discussed above would be your guide when you want to make use of the service in your online casino account transactions.
