This company was originally established in Germany in the year 2000. ClickAndBuy now process transactions all over the world, through an association with over 16,000 merchants.
It's known for being very "friendly to the consumer." That's because it is not only easy and free to set up an account, it also provides a way for you to make all your purchases without having to reveal any financial information to the merchant. This is especially important to people who gamble at online casinos.
ClickAndBuy allows you to open an account in different ways. You have the option of using your bank account for funding, with the account being debited upon transactions, or you can have those purchases routed through your credit card.
Take note that when you designate a direct debit, you are authorizing ClickAndBuy to take money directly out of your bank account, while the credit card option is rather self-explanatory. You also have a third option - that of funding the account yourself, although there is always information about a bank account on file. .
You'll get these choices in a drop-down box and you choose from among them. Actually, you can name more than one payment option, while designating one of them as your "primary" option. You can also register more than one credit card with them.
It's important, quite obviously, that whatever method you have chosen is sufficiently funded to withstand a transaction, since charges can be assessed for failed payments.
You can fund this relatively easily too, if you arrive at an online casino where you want to open an account. You'll normally go to "cashier" or "payment methods" and find ClickAndBuy. Click on that, and then it will post funds to your account using the method you have designated. It's very simple.
A very nice thing about ClickAndBuy which is not present in many other funding options for online casino gaming is that you can also receive funds through it as well. Withdrawals work like this: the casino will execute a bank transfer that will go into the bank account you have identified in your original account profile. As long as that account is in "verified" status you are good to go. Please be advised that withdrawals are not instant; they take about 3-5 business days to completely go through.
You can sign up free with ClickAndBuy, but there could be some charges incurred along the way. For example, you will be charged 2.75% in the way of a "handling fee" when it comes to withdrawals. If you fund your account through your credit card, you will incur a 3.9% fee, but you won't be charged for simply using the card for your purchases.
ClickAndBuy offers something called the "shopping airbag," in which customers can place their own limits on spending. Perhaps that is something that comes in handy with those partaking in online casino gaming?
ClickAndBuy is available to Canadian customers; for players from the United States, it's a bit of a different story. Although a U.S. resident can sign up as a regular customer with the service, gambling-related transactions are not permitted because they are blocked.
