Currently no casino offers to deposit or withdraw with PayPal. You can do it with any other payment method that we offer here in Casino Alto.
When we talk about Paypal, we are discussing the most-used online payment method worldwide to make purchases and payments online. This is due to the ease, speed and security offered by the service. It is also one of the most widely-used cash deposit methods in the online casino industry, hence the vast majority of casino operators offer it.
Paypal has its origins in the United States, where it was founded in 1998 as part of PayPal Holdings Inc – a company now owned by eBay, the giant of online purchases. At the time of its founding, it was named Confinity, and it was not until 2001 after the merger with x.com, a banking company owned by Elon Musk, that it would receive its current nomenclature.
In 2002, it was acquired by eBay given the competition it had with the payment platform of this company named BillPoint. Its rise was meteoric with hugely successful marketing campaigns, and today it is one of the largest and most powerful payment companies in the world.
