The first step in betting with QIWI is creating an account. This process is quite intuitive and straightforward.
- Visit https://qiwi.com/transfer
- Select a language, then choose 'Create Wallet'
- Put in your phone number
- Enter the code you received through SMS
- Fill in the required information
This procedure not only creates your account but also verifies your e-wallet. From here on out, you can deposit funds to your QIWI wallet, which can be used to top up your account on betting sites.
Just log on to a Qiwi bookmaker and choose QIWI as the payment method. Bettors can also use a QIWI payWave or payWave+ plastic or virtual card. The QIWI virtual card is free, but the payWave and payWave+ cards will cost you ₽299 and ₽349, respectively. If using one of these, choose VISA or credit card as the payment option.
Once you enter the amount, you will be transferred to your QIWI wallet. Re-enter and amount and proceed with the deposit. An OTP (one-time-password) will be sent to the registered number, which can be used to authorize the transaction. The funds should reflect in your account immediately.
A big advantage that bettors see in Qiwi is that there are currently no fees when depositing on Qiwi Bookmakers. There are also no fees if the account is funded through a Qiwi kiosk or an ATM. However, deposits made through a bank transfer or credit card have a 3.5% commission for deposits.
