Paybox is a mobile payment solution available for residents of Austria and some parts of the UK. Because it works directly over a mobile phone network, Paybox can be used for both land-based and online transactions. Several online casinos have added Paybox to their repertoire of deposit options. A list of Paybox casinos is available on this page.
Opening a Paybox Account
Before you can use Paybox, you'll need to register an account with the service. You will just need a valid mobile phone number to begin. Log into the Paybox website at www.paybox.at to begin the process. Select “New Customers”, then “Registration” and follow the steps listed on the page. Make sure you record your PIN and keep it hidden in a safe place.
Depositing with Paybox
To make a deposit with Paybox, you must first log into the casino you wish to play at and visit the cashier section. Paybox should be one of the deposit options listed. After clicking on the Paybox icon and entering your deposit amount, enter your mobile phone number and wait for a confirmation call or SMS message. As long as you have enough funds in your Paybox, the transaction will clear immediately.
Advantages of Paybox
Paybox is one of the few deposit options that do not require a credit or debit card. Depending on your location and the Paybox service you chose, you may not even need a bank account – some Payboxes can be funded directly through your mobile phone bill. This makes it useful for players who do not have a bank account, or who simply do not want to disclose this information to third parties.
The fees to use Paybox are generally lower than those of most e-wallets. This can make it a good option for players looking to get the most out of their deposits. Your phone provider's standard messaging and calling fees apply, however, so make sure you understand the terms of your mobile plan before using Paybox.
Disadvantages of Paybox
Unfortunately, Paybox is not available for withdrawing funds from an online casino. If you opt to use Paybox to make a deposit, make sure you have a plan for cashing out in the event that you do win. We rend consulting with a support representative at the casino before you even make your deposit if you are unsure of your options.
Paybox is available to residents of Austria and some parts of the UK only. If you do not live in these regions, Paybox is not an option for you. However, there are similar services available for those who live in different parts of the world.
