Canadian Payment Methods (By Betfair.com)

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the question.

Yes we do take Visa and Mastercard. If you have a Royal Bank or Scotiabank card, these banks don't allow transactions to online gambling companies and you should use Moneybookers instead.

Moneybookers is great, that is what I use.

TD or National Bank products work at most books as well.

Dear betfair i have been with you for the last 6 years .I don't wager much with you .
One of the reasons (main reason) Deposit options .
I have account with moneybookers works just great .Except (i need to call my bank for an appointment then wait 2-3 for my money to get their) High fees on the bank transfer.
This days if i wanna make a bet i just do it with the Greek or Bet Jamaica .
My favorite bet365.Much better options and varieties of bets by far.
You have the highest odds (most of the time and a markets).

With the books above If i wanna bet / wager $1000 or more, one hour prior of the game all i have to do .Just visit WU office near by ,deposit $300 or more and i don't even have to pay any fees .

Deposit and withdrawal options for Canadian Customers.
You need to fix it PLS !!!











SO THERE NO OPTION OF WU .RIGHT. PLS UPDATE Deposit and withdrawal options for Canadian Customers.

Same goes to some other UK books (takes them years to update).Shame.

TNX for the freerolls !
What about sizes ??? I think i am gonna make post on PL site (under "poker tourneys") your generous offer of
Betfair Winter Coat (XL) , Betfair Hooded sweatshirt (L).
LOL . I don't wanna pull your #'s / the money you make . But to me .Sorry to tell you this is sounds like a BIG joke . The least you should do, not to embarrass your self OFFER ANY SIZE. Make sense to me.Compony of you size with a jucket
(XL):nohead:


Keep it i don't need it :lol: . Will not even waist my time on this type of the freerools .I'll play them on the canbet over $10.000 in cash .You might wanna play yourself .Here is the detailes for you :

  1. Log in to your Canbet Poker software
  2. Click on 'Scheduled Tournaments' and then go to 'Special'
  3. Click on '$5,000 Festive Freeroll' (highlighted in green)
  4. Register for a night of many happy returns
  5. Tournament starts at 9:00pm GMT on Saturday, 20 December
  6. Each player gets:
    ♠ Unlimited Rebuys @ $5 until first break
    ♠ 1 x $5 Add-on @ the break



OK . It is all jokes do not take it too hard .
From my point of you you would be better off to offer $100 freerool instead of
Hooded sweatshirt (L).

GL.

Hi vitamin:


Thanks for your response:
1. WU info is below (please let me know if you need more info on how to send money)

Western Union
Company Code: BFCDA.XE
Account Number: AXC040059

2. These are the sizes we have left right now. There will be many more contests coming up and will have some more ordered by then.

3. Large depositors should simply ask what I can do for them RE: fees. Our policies are flexible and assessed as when the request comes through. For example, one of the Rxers asked me to lower their commission rate because they were going to make a large deposit, wanted to try Betfair out and would be betting large volumes (thus lowering commission naturally, anyway)

4. I updated Canada payments page here...I am working on updating those pages up there as well. It's a BIG company and these improvements take time - very safe and secure though!!

TNX Rob for your reply .I believe you are talking about BLUE FORM-"Quick-Pay". I could be wrong .
Again if i am not mistaken WU in Canada doesn't have this type of forms .
We only have "Quick collect" and "Person to person". Non of them would support required fields . I try that years ago at 2or3 different locations i even called WU ,i was told that "Quick-Pay" is not available in Canada. WU took them out about 7 years ago.

Overall you are doing great job by helping out new punters .
Promos and lowering commission. I got some free bets from you too.Bet20 get 20 free . You guys been calling me all summer :103631605 .

PS BQ lowered my commision to a 2%.All i had to do just mention your company name.%^_
Cheers.

Hi Vitamin:

That is excellent information. Thank you. I am going to speak to the people who handle the deposits and get 100% clarification on WU.

If you PM Sportsavant your BF username, I would like to send you a little something for your info on WU transfers.

Thanks again,

Rob
