Is PayPal a Viable Option for 888?
PayPal is the payment solution of choice for many of us but is it a good payment option for bingo sites to offer? Bingo players at St Minver online bingo sites such as LittlewoodsBingo, Chit Chat, LadbrokesBingo, Tombola and William Hill Bingo may already reap the benefits of having PayPal as an option. Or do they? PayPal has a reputation of rejecting offshore transactions. Banning the use of credit cards for online gambling next on the government agenda in the UK so is PayPal really a viable option?

888Ladies has announced the launch of PayPal as a payment option in the near future. Other brands powered by the 888 software, which include most of the major sites such as Wink Bingo and Foxy Bingo will surely follow suit.

Since PayPal permits customers to purchase items using credit cards, or permits them to be a means of back-up, this may indicate that they will not be practical as a source of online gambling deposits if the United Kingdom passes the legislation restricting the use of credit cards for online gambling. Government sources have indicated that this is one of the most likely measures to be implemented.

If you are a user of PayPal then you may have experienced their security issues. International purchases may prove to be quite challenging. PayPal's security precautions may lead to problems if attempts are made to use them as a means to fund your bingo accounts when the operators are foreign based.
