Payments in Argentina

Argentina is a country where cash is still king and many people do not have access to or trust traditional banking services. In addition, the legal status of online gambling is unclear and varies from province to province, making it difficult for operators to obtain licenses and comply with regulations.


Cash is the most widely used and accepted payment method in Argentina, as many people do not have or trust other options such as bank accounts, credit cards or eWallets.

However, depositing cash into an online casino account can be tricky as it requires an intermediary or third party service.

One of the most common ways to do this is to contact an agent or representative of the online casino who can arrange a meeting or delivery to collect the cash and credit it to the player's account.

This can be done through a variety of channels including phone calls, emails or WhatsApp messages.

Another option is to use a cash payment service such as Rapipago or Pago Fácil, which allow users to generate a voucher online and pay with cash at a physical location. The payment is then confirmed and credited to the player's account within minutes.

Cons of paying in cash

Risk: May involve some risk as it may expose the player and the agent to theft, robbery, or violence. It may also arouse suspicion or attract the attention of authorities who may question the legality or source of the funds.
Delay: May take some time, depending on the availability and reliability of the agent or service. It may also involve some travel or transportation costs, as the player may have to go to a specific location or meet with the agent.
Fees: There may be some fees or commissions that vary depending on the agent or service. These fees may reduce the amount that the player can actually use for gambling.

Minimize these problems

  • Choose a trustworthy and professional agent or service that can handle cash transactions securely and efficiently, and offer reasonable rates and terms.
  • Provide clear and accurate information about the process and terms for depositing cash into an online casino account, and keep players informed of any changes or updates.
  • Offer alternative payment methods that may be more convenient and secure for players, such as credit cards, eWallets, or local payment methods.

Credit and Debit Cards

Credit and debit cards allow you to top up your account almost instantly and are the easiest way to do this, but they are not as popular in the Argetin as cash.

Disadvantages of card payment

High fees: Depending on the card issuer and the casino, players may be charged high fees for each transaction, ranging from 2% to 10% of the amount. These fees may include currency conversion fees, foreign transaction fees, and cash advance fees.
Low limits: Some card issuers may impose low limits on the amount players can deposit or withdraw per day, week, or month. These limits may vary depending on the type of card, the casino, and the player's history and profile.
Decline: Some card transactions may be declined by the card issuer, the casino, or the payment processor for various reasons, such as fraud prevention, anti-money laundering, or compliance with local laws. This can cause frustration and inconvenience for players and operators.
Chargebacks: Players can request a chargeback from the card issuer, claiming that they did not authorize the transaction, did not receive the service, or were not satisfied with the outcome. This can result in disputes, fines and loss of reputation for the casino.

How to avoid these issues?

  • Choose a reputable and reliable payment processor that can process card transactions smoothly and securely, and offer competitive rates and terms.
  • Verify the identity and source of funds of your customers using Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) procedures to prevent fraud and comply with regulations.
  • Provide clear and transparent information about the fees, limits and terms of each card transaction, and keep customers informed of any changes or updates.
  • Offer alternative payment methods that may better suit their customers' preferences and needs.


E-wallets are digital wallets that allow users to store and transfer money online using various devices such as smartphones, tablets or computers. Becoming increasingly popular among online gambling aficionados in Argentina.

Some popular eWallets

Skrill: is a global eWallet that supports over 40 currencies and over 100 payment methods, including credit cards, bank transfers, and cryptocurrencies. It is widely accepted by online casinos, and offers low fees, high limits, and fast transactions. It also has a VIP program that offers additional benefits, such as lower fees, higher limits, and dedicated support.
PayPal: is one of the most well-known and trusted eWallets in the world, supporting over 25 currencies and over 200 payment methods, including credit cards, bank transfers, and cryptocurrencies. It is accepted by some online casinos, but not all, as it has strict policies and regulations regarding online gambling. It offers low fees, high limits, and fast transactions. It also has a rewards program that offers cashback, discounts, and points.


Verification: Some eWallets may require users to verify their identity and the source of their funds using Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) procedures to prevent fraud and comply with regulations. This can take some time and effort and may involve sharing personal or financial information with the eWallet provider or casino.
Security: While generally secure and encrypted, electronic wallets can be vulnerable for hacking, phishing, and malware attacks. Users must be cautious and vigilant when using eWallets and must protect their passwords, PINs, biometrics, or tokens. Users must also verify the reputation and reliability of the eWallet provider and the casino, and avoid any suspicious or fraudulent transactions.

How to use eWallet on the platform?

  • Integrate with your casino software and website using APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) or plugins to ensure a seamless and user-friendly experience.
  • Promote it as a preferred payment method by offering incentives such as bonuses, free spins or loyalty points for using it.
  • Monitor and optimize performance and feedback using analytics and reporting to identify and resolve issues.

So the bottom line?

The more payment methods there are on the site, the better the chance that the player will stay for a long time, as he will not have any problems with replenishment. The most popular method is still cash payments through agents.
