Apple Pay sports betting sites in Canada

How to use Apple Pay on bet365

Apple Pay is a recently established yet straightforward option for depositing to betting sites for sports bettors. It is available to anyone who owns an iPhone 6 or newer, iPad Air 2 or newer, a Mac with Touch ID, or an Apple Watch. It initially launched in Canada in November 2015 and is used by an estimated 500 million people worldwide as of 2023.

Unfortunately, the only major sportsbook available to Canadian bettors that currently accepts Apple Pay is bet365. However, they do so with large deposit limits and fast processing times, making it a useful option if you deposit to your bet365 account on a regular basis.

Pros and cons of using Apple Pay


Secure payments: Unlike many other payment methods that simply require your card details, Apple Pay uses two-factor authentication as standard to ensure your payments are secure. Apple Pay will contact you through your chosen device for verification and can be set up with Face ID, so it will only process your deposit if it’s certain you're the one making it.

Large deposit limits: bet365 allows you to deposit up to $10,000 at once with Apple Pay, which is a lot more than many of the other payment methods offer. For instance, you can only deposit $8,000 with Click to Pay, $5,000 with iDebit, and $400 with paysafecard.

Fast processing time: You can instantly deposit to your bet365 account with Apple Pay, meaning you’ll have immediate access to your funds to bet with.

✅ Safe transaction history: Apple Pay only stores the transactions you have made in the last month, before deleting them permanently. This means that in the event someone else gains access to your Apple Pay records, they would only be able to see limited information.


Limited choice of sportsbooks: As mentioned, bet365 is currently the only major sportsbook available to Canadian bettors that offers Apple Pay as a deposit method. At present, it is unclear if more betting sites will accept Apple Pay in the near future.

Not available for withdrawals: Apple Pay can be used for deposits but not withdrawals with bet365. This means that if you are depositing to your bet365 account with Apple Pay, you need to have access to a different payment method to withdraw from your account.

Using Apple Pay on mobile

Depositing to a betting site using Apple Pay via mobile is straightforward and will be familiar to anyone who regularly makes payments on devices such as their iPhone.

  2. Open the Wallet app and press the Add (+) button in the top right corner

Why should you use Apple Pay for betting?

Overall, Apple Pay is a secure, straightforward, and speedy method for depositing funds to betting sites. Its advanced verification features keep your money safe, while its large limits and fast processing times help you to ensure that you’ll never miss out on any wager you want to place.

If that wasn’t enough, it is inherently designed to be mobile-friendly and can be used across a range of Apple devices. As long as your sportsbook accepts it, there is no major reason not to utilise Apple Pay for depositing into your betting account.
