An electronic check, commonly known as eCheck, is a form of online payment where money is electronically withdrawn from a customer’s bank account. It is then transferred over a secure network and deposited into the vendor’s account as payment for good or services. eChecks have a much lower risk of the funds being stolen when compared to paper checks, as there is no physical item to purloin. Payments must be authorised by the customer, usually via acceptance of a website’s terms and conditions or other type of simple authentication process. Many leading bookmakers in Canada offer punters the opportunity to fund their betting accounts via the eCheck system including Sports Interaction and Betway. The process is similar to paper check processing, but with the help of modern technology it is completed in a much speedier timescale. To use eCheck services you must first complete a short registration process during which your bank account will be linked to your eCheck account. This takes just a few minutes to sort out and you will then be able to begin depositing funds with your chosen bookmaker.
