Almost every casino has a variety of deposit and withdrawal options available. Like VISA, Mastercard, Neteller and Skrill as the mainstream ones. But there are other processing companies out there, whose only shortcoming is that they are eclipsed by their larger counterparts and thus — less known. PugglePay is one of them. So let’s dig deeper to see what it has to offer for casino players.
What is Pugglepay
PugglePay is a Swedish payment processing company that allows you to make instant payments with your phone in casinos that accept it. And you don’t even need to download an app for this.
The company has several awards, like Nordic eCommerce’s Newcomer-2014, or Red Herring Top-100, for example. And today PugglePay is one of the most secure payment options on the market.
The unique feature of PugglePay is allowing you to make a deposit now but pay it at a later date. The other feature is that there is no tedious verification process. And you don’t need to reveal any personal or financial information.
In What Countries PugglePay is Available
PugglePay is mainly popular in Sweden and Finland with a number of users around 30 000. But aside from Sweden, there is a small number of PugglePay casinos in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, Indonesia, Italy and even Papua New Guinea.
Are There Any Fees
The main advantage of using PugglePay is that, unlike other payment methods, it doesn’t charge any extra fees aside from a tiny percentage of the deposit. Your phone bill won’t get larger as well.
How to Make Deposits Using PugglePay
You can deposit right off the bat if you have a mobile phone number and PugglePay is supported in your country. You will need a number, since that’s the place where an invoice with a code will be sent once you make a deposit. The invoice needs to be paid within 14 days by any supported way. Which means you can play now even if you don’t have money at hand, but are guaranteed to get them within the next two weeks.
The Future of PugglePay
Being a very Swedish thing in nature, PugglePay found it hard to expand in the foreign markets. The problem was that people could make deposits using funds they don’t have yet. While in Sweden, where mutual trust is high, people are used to such ways to pay, the same can’t be said about foreign countries. Also funds could only be deposited through PugglePay, but not withdrawn.
A slight change of course was made. And as part of the package, PugglePay was rebranded into Zimpler. Keeping most key features of its predecessor, now it supports 100% of Swedish banks, SEK and EUR as currencies and not only deposit, but withdrawal as well.
