Much of the information provided in this overview was obtained from online casinos that accept EasyEFT as a payment method.
EasyEFT on gambling sites
When our team researched EasyEFT, most Google search results were about EasyEFT as a payment method for online casinos. Several gambling sites state that EasyEFT supports electronic funds transfers (EFT) directly between bank accounts, providing the gateway for payments to be initiated using existing online banking logins and platforms. Betting sites also affirm that EasyEFT supports players that hold bank accounts at all the major banks in South Africa, including ABSA, Nedbank, FNB/RNB, Standard Bank, Capitec, and Investec.
Several online casinos state that EasyEFT is a new service, but we were unable to verify a launch date. The sites also claim that EasyEFT is a service developed by South Africans specifically for South Africans. However, we were unable to find any official information on the company’s ownership or management. Further, we found no information about security protocols, history, or payment features.
EasyEFT vs. SiD Secure EFT
EasyEFT and SiD Secure EFT appear to provide similar online EFT services for the South African market. The SiD website is transparent and features detailed information about their service offering, product benefits, security protocols, and corporate ownership. The EasyEFT website is loosely directed toward merchants but does not provide any detailed information about the company or its services.
