What is INSTADEBIT?

INSTADEBIT wallet is an Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) that allows online payments directly from your bank account via electronic check (echeck). INSTADEBIT deposits are processed as electronic checks, so you don't need to use any paper checks.

If your INSTADEBIT account has sufficient funds, the amount is moved directly to your user account. If not, the entire deposit amount will be transferred from your bank account to your INSTADEBIT wallet first and then to your account with us automatically.

Signing up is free, and you can start transferring funds instantly. To sign up with INSTADEBIT, just visit the their website.

We don't charge any fees; however, INSTADEBIT will charge a small fee directly to your bank account for transferring funds:

  • From your bank account to a merchant: 1.00 CAD
  • From your INSTADEBIT account to your bank account: 2.00 CAD

IMPORTANT:

  • Even though INSTADEBIT deposits are immediately credited to your user account, it can take up to 7 days for the funds to be withdrawn from your bank account.
  • Keep sufficient funds in your bank account until the debit occurs.
  • During this period, your INSTADEBIT deposits will remain as 'uncleared' in our system. This means you can use the funds to play only, but you may not withdraw or transfer those funds.
  • Any portion of your balance above the total of your 'uncleared' deposits may be used normally, including withdrawals and transfers.
  • If a deposit is returned unpaid by your bank, we'll put your INSTADEBIT account on hold, and any future INSTADEBIT and eCheck deposits will remain unavailable, even for play, for 7 days.
