Visa processes a mind-blowing 100 billion transactions a year. They are currently the world’s second-largest card payment organization, only recently surpassed by China’s UnionPay. So, it’s no surprise that the most common payment method you’ll find at pretty much every online casino is Visa debit and credit cards.
Visa payments are super easy. You can use Visa both in-person and online. If you are a sucker for punishment, you can even make payments over the phone. But how does a Visa card work? Simply put, even though credit and debit cards are branded by Visa they are issued by separate financial institutions, such as your bank. Merchants are then charged a small fee by Visa to process payments.
If you don’t have a Visa card and want a simple way to make a transaction with an online casino, then just enquire at your bank. They will most likely be happy to assist you in applying for a Visa debit or credit card.
