How do I make a deposit?
If you need to know how to make a deposit on an Australian DFS site, simply follow this guide and you'll soon have it figured out.
Not all Daily Fantasy Sports competitions require an entry fee, or buy-in, however for the bigger competitions offering sizeable prize pools, a buy-in will be required and any winnings you have will be paid into your account at each specific site.
First of all, you have to create an account at the specific site you wish to play at. Once you have done this, you will then be able to make a deposit which will then allow you to participate in the bigger contests.
At Draftstars, once you have logged in you will see a Pink ‘Deposit’ button in the top right corner of the page, with you profile avatar besides it. Click on the button, select the amount you wish to deposit and method of payment. The payment options are via Credit Card (Matsercard or VISA) or Poli. Simply add in the amount to deposit, card details and the click on the ‘deposit funds’ button.
The SportChamps site has a slightly different layout. Once logged in, you have to navigate to the bottom left of the screen to find the Deposit button. They only have one immediate deposit method, via credit card. Simply add in your details, deposit amount and your account password. Alternatively, they have supplied their bank details if you wish to transfer funds direct from your bank account. These funds though will be processed on the following business day, so it’s best to keep that in mind.
DraftKings offers Credit/Debit card or PayPal deposits only for Australian players. After logging in, you can make a deposit simply by clicking on the Deposit button at the top right corner of the page and adding in your payment method, details and amount.
