Paddy Power Cash Card – What is it and how does it work?
Although online betting is extremely convenient in a great many ways, there are times when it can be an inconvenience and the most obvious of these is when you want access to your winnings. In many cases, a punter can have to wait 2-3 days or maybe longer for their cash to be transferred from their account to their card, bank account or another chosen payment method.
However, to resolve this, Paddy Power have now come up with the perfect answer, the Paddy Power Cash Card PPlus.
At a single stroke, Paddy Power have now offered any of its customers that elect to request and use one of these cards instant access to their winnings, in cash, withdrawn from an ATM machine.
What is the Paddy Power Cash Card PPlus?
The Paddy Power Cash Card PPlus is a debit card (offered by IDT Financial Services using MasterCard) that operates from your Paddy Power online account, rather than a separate credit account (as how a credit card would operate) or from your own bank account (as your personal debit card operates).
What this card does is allow you access to any funds in your Paddy Power account from the moment they are added to the account, through using the Paddy Power Cash Card PPlus as you would a standard debit card.
The great thing about the card is that it allows punters immediate access to any withdrawable funds in their account. Furthermore, you cannot go overdrawn on your card as it will not authorise a payment that you cannot fund from the reserves in your account.
With no charges to pay, no debt incurred, Paddy Power Cash Card PPlus offers a simple, cost-effective and immediate solution to the issue of getting your hands on your online winnings quickly and easily.
