Intrade accepts Visa and MasterCard. All deposits are processed using 3D verification (Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode) to protect your card against unauthorised use.
There is no maximum amount you can deposit by check. Intrade accepts personal checks and cashier's checks (known as bank checks in some countries) but we do not accept international money orders.
Personal checks take approximately ten business days to be cleared by our bank. We will clear USD cashier's checks up the value of $500 (one per customer) immediately upon receipt, so this is a good way to funds into your account quickly.
An international bank wire typically takes 2-4 business days to reach us. Your bank will charge you fees for sending a bank wire but we will cover any fees charged by our bank for receiving the funds.
There is no maximum to the amount of funds you can send by bank wire and we recommend this option for deposits over $1,000.
Unfortunately we are not able to accept deposits using PayPal, NETeller, Moneybookers or any of the other major eWallet services. This is because of restrictions contained in their terms of service. We also cannot accept eChecks, BitCoins or Western Union transfers.
