FirePay offers a free Web-based bank account called a FirePay Personal Account that works just like a debit card that your bank would issue you. Once your account has been funded, you can use FirePay to make your online casino purchase.
Signing up for a Firepay account
The first thing that you will do, once you are at their website, is click on the button that says “Express Signup”. Once you have done that, simply enter your email address, personal information (name, address, etc.) and your bank account information. Submit this information through their completely secure site once you have filled out the necessary information. FirePay will then send you a confirmation email that contains instructions on how to log onto your account. Take this information, go back to the FirePay website and log in to your account. This activates your FirePay Personal Account and FirePay will then send a small deposit amount, what’s called a Validation Deposit, to the bank account that you signed up with. The validation process usually takes between 2 and 3 business days to be completed, this is out of Fire pay’s control as it is a bank based policy. With Fire pay’s new Express Fund, instead of waiting the normal 2 to 3 business days for money to be transferred, you can immediately transfer money to your FirePay account.
Validating your bank account
The next part of the process is validating your bank account. This is a security measure to confirm that you are the person who’s name is on the bank account you submitted. Other benefits of this process include lower deposit fees, higher deposit limits, and it enables you to withdraw money from your FirePay Personal Account. 2-3 business days after you went through the first part of the sign up process, check your bank statement for the validation deposit. This deposit should have “FirePay.com” as its reference. Once you have obtained this information, log in to your FirePay account and type in the amount of the validation deposit. This is the only time you will have to validate your bank account.
Now, you may be wondering why you should validate a bank account if you use Fire pay’s Express Fund. The answer is simple. Those who use FirePay Express Fund are required to provide FirePay with more personal information in order to fund their account before the validation process is complete. They are also asked to pay an Express Fund fee of $3 per deposit, may only deposit $300 per week and they aren’t allowed to withdraw funds until the validation process is complete, and are not able to withdraw funds until they validate their bank accounts.
Deposit money into your Firepay account
Now that you have validated your bank account with FirePay, you can deposit money into your account. All you need to do is log into your FirePay account and type in how much money that you want to deposit. Follow the easy, on-screen, instructions and then you will have instant access to the money that you transferred into your FirePay account.
