Originally known as ecoCard, ecoPayz appeared over two decades ago in 2000, which means it was one of the first e-wallets. Over the years, the service has hugely expanded and it now gives its customers a vast amount of choice in regards to making online payments.
ecoPayz provides three core services to its customers, ecoAccount, ecoCard and ecoVirtualCard. If you have ever used an e-wallet, then the ecoAccount will feel very familiar. You can top it up and store your money online and then use the account to make payments at a vast number of websites as well as transfer money around the world in roughly 45 different currencies. The wallet can be funded through a variety of different payment methods while money can be withdrawn directly to bank accounts.
Those who wish to may sign up for an ecoCard. It is a physical prepaid MasterCard that is sent to customers through the post. The card can be topped up through the ecoAccount and then used in the same way as a regular debit card, both online and offline. The service is hugely popular with customers as it does not require them to have a bank account and no credit checks are carried out before the card is issued. Furthermore, each customer may have up to three ecoCards, one for Pounds, one for US Dollars, and one for Euros. The card is ideal for those who budget their gambling carefully as it is not possible to spend more than the amount deposited on it.
As the name suggests, the ecoVirtualCard is a virtual version of the ecoCard. It is a onetime use payment card that customers can create instantly through their ecoAccount. After the virtual card has been created, it can be used in the same way as a regular debit card online or even over the telephone, but after a single use the card expires and it cannot be used again.
All three of these services have proved to be extremely popular with online gamblers and many others, and they have helped cement ecoPayz place as one of the leading online payment service providers.
