For full legal compliance, Paddy Power strive to ensure all payment methods used on site belong to the account holder. Outlined below are the requirements for each payment method:
Debit and Credit Card
Please ensure that you use a card registered in your own name. Please also ensure we hold your correct billing address for the registered card. Unfortunately, any discrepancy in the name or address could lead to the suspension of your account.
Unfortunately Paddy Power cannot accept business cards. This policy applies for both personal and company cards. If it comes to our attention that you have used a business card, Paddy Power reserves the right to void any bets placed. Please ensure that all cards used are in your own name only.
The PayPal account that is registered on your Paddy Power account must be in your name. If it's not, your account may be closed, open bets voided and the available funds returned to the PayPal account.
The Neteller account that is registered on your Paddy Power account must be in your name. If it's not, your account may be closed, open bets voided and the available funds returned to the Neteller account.
The Moneybooker account that is registered on your Paddy Power account must be in your name. If it's not, your account may be closed, open bets voided and the available funds returned to the Moneybooker account.
Please note that the bank account must be in your name and must be located in the same country from where the card was issued. For Security reasons before you make your first Bank Transfer you must provide us with a copy of your bank statement along with a form of Photo ID. You only have to provide these details once.
You can deposit cash in any of our shops across Ireland and the UK - just bring your cash to the desk and quote your username or account number to the cashier. They will process your deposit and the funds will be in your account straight away. You can withdraw cash from your Paddy Power account in any of our shops in Ireland, Northern Ireland, England and Scotland. To do this you will need a Paddy Power cash card which will also require you to display photo identification. For more details on cash cards see here.
You can deposit and withdraw using your Entropay virtual credit card. This is subject to a verification check on the name and billing address. Please ensure the Entropay account is in your own name and address only.
Paddy Power now allow PaySafe as a deposit method for users from Austria, Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and the United Kingdom.
If we cannot verify your age with PaySafe, we will have to request a copy of official documentation from you (Passport,. Driving Licence or Government Issued card).
Are my winnings safe with Paddy Power?
Sufficient funds are retained by Paddy Power in segregated accounts held with highly-rated banks, separate from our operating accounts, to ensure that there is always enough money for customers to withdraw from their Paddy Power balances - even in the highly unlikely event of the insolvency of the company. These accounts are audited independently by internal and external audit teams, and balances are monitored regularly by the relevant regulatory authorities
