The main difficulty in organizing online payments for online casinos
What exactly is any online payment? This is a technology that allows you to change the owner of money without physically transferring it. When a person makes a purchase, for example, using a bank card, this technology debits the purchase amount from his account and credits it to the seller’s account, excluding the service fees for this transfer. Such a procedure necessarily implies the presence of an acquiring bank that organizes online payments and credits the sale money to its account. If necessary, the acquiring bank will convert the buyer’s money into the currency required by the seller.
Since, ultimately, the seller’s money is credited to his bank card, the international payment system (MPS) participates in the online payment technology, which controls bank cards issued under its auspices. It can be Visa, MasterCard, Mir, etc. In certain cases, MPS may recognize an online payment as illegal and require the acquiring bank to return the buyer’s money. This procedure is called a chargeback. Those types of business where the probability of a chargeback is high are called high risk.
Due to the fact that the chargeback turns into additional costs for the bank, they offer higher service rates for high-risk businesses. This is preceded by a lengthy verification procedure, which often ends with a refusal to cooperate. The gambling industry, in particular online casinos, is such a highly risky business.
The second reason why banks refuse to service online casinos is reputational. It is believed that gambling is something vicious, almost immoral. So, to have a business relationship with such a business is to spoil your image. And for the banking sector, reputation is everything.
What should an online casino do?
First, let us outline our position regarding the gambling industry, in particular online casinos. Gambling, which appeared at the dawn of human history, is an integral part of the lives of tens and hundreds of millions of people. And gambling in and of itself is neither good nor bad. This is a given. Like sex. It all depends on the organization of these games. If you organize everything in a civilized way, minimize the likelihood of fraud, if you pay taxes, then why is it bad? After all, a person has a physiological need for passion. And if you do not create legal ways for him to satisfy this need, then he will still satisfy it, only this time often in an illegal way. Therefore, we are for a civilized gambling industry.
Our company Wellcoinpay offers its services in organizing Internet payments for online casinos and other companies operating in the gambling industry, for example, bookmakers.
