Founded in 2015, Ozan is a new eWallet that aims to meet all your payment needs. As with any eWallet that starts getting some attention, some bookies are starting to offer support for Ozan as a deposit and withdrawal method.
Ozan is secure, fast, and lightweight, and could be your next betting site payment method of choice!
50% of your first bet up to £40
Registering an Ozan account is easy, and can be done in minutes. We’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of setting up your own Ozan account to use with betting sites.
There are two major ways to use Ozan as your primary payment method on betting sites; either (a) the bookie supports Ozan natively and you can pay by clicking or tapping the Ozan logo, or (b) you can use your physical or virtual Ozan Debit card for an added layer of security.
This is similar to other eWallet integration, in that it’s simple and easy. We look forward to more and more bookies offering these kinds of payments in the future.
When depositing, you’ll click on the Ozan button, a pop-up will ask you to log-in to your Ozan account, choose whether you’d like to use your Ozan balance or pay through a credit card, and authorize the payment.
For a fee, you can order a VISA debit card linked to your Ozan account. This means that even if a bookie hasn’t integrated Ozan into their site yet, you can still benefit from Ozan’s protection and use your Ozan wallet funds with the vast majority of betting sites out there. All you need to do is choose “VISA” as your payment method, and enter your Ozan card details like you would with your regular VISA card.
Ozan provides a lot of basic functionality for free, though there are a number of services that users can avail of that will incur fees.
Adding funds to your account, person-to-person transfers, and transfers to/from merchants are all free, which should cover the vast majority of transactions that the average user needs on a day-to-day basis.
Getting a virtual VISA card with Ozan is free, though a physical card will set you back a delivery fee as well as a monthly service fee.
|Monthly Fee for virtual cards||🆓|
|Monthly Fee for physical cards||£4.90|
|Physical card delivery fee||£4.90|
|Express delivery fee||UK - £14.95|
|EEA - £18.90|
|Additional Physical Card Fee||£4.90|
|Physical Card cancellation fee||£9.90|
|EEA ATM withdrawal (up to £200/month)||First withdrawal per week: 🆓|
|Additional withdrawals: £1|

If transferring money from your Ozan account to a UK or EEA account, then that’s classed as a SEPA payment, which incurs a fee of £2.90. If your bank supports Faster network payments, then an additional £0.50 applies.
Transfers to accounts held outside the EEA are more expensive, and customers need to pay 0.5% of the transferred amount plus a £4.90 flat fee.
Any Ozan transaction that requires currency exchange is going to incur a currency exchange fee, so make sure to factor select the right currency before depositing funds to your account on a betting site.
|Currency Conversion Between||Normal banking hours fee (Monday-Friday)||Non-banking hours fee (Weekends)|
|USD, GBP, EUR, AUD, CAD, NZD, CHF, JPY, SEK, HKD, NOK, SGD, DKK, PLN and MXN (“Category A”)||Interbank market rate||Interbank market rate + 0.5%|
|All other currencies (“Category B”)||Interbank market rate + 0.5%||Interbank market rate +2%|
When exchanging currencies from different categories (e.g. GBP to RUB), the conversion rate for the base currency will apply. This means it’s cheaper to exchange a currency from Category A into Category B than it is to exchange a currency from Category B into Category A.

Ozan is certainly a versatile payment tool, but we understand that it might not be perfect for everyone. If you’re still weighing your options about which payment method should be your primary one, you might also want to take a look at the following:
Each of these payment methods have their own pros and cons, though there’s enough choice out there that there’s something for everyone.
Trustly is extremely popular with betting sites, and this Swedish-based online payment service has been fully optimized for betting. Accepted by dozens of sportsbooks, and providing instant transactions, we recommend heading to our Trustly review to help you decide if this is the payment method for you.
Punter from the UK will definitely be familiar with this one. PayPal is currently the UK’s number 1 most popular eWallet, and many have been PayPal users for well over a decade. While not as widely adopted by betting sites as we’d like, there are enough bookies that support PayPal that make it a real contender for your primary payment method. Take a look at our piece on the Best PayPal Betting Sites to see which bookies accept PayPal.
Another popular choice, Skrill is an eWallet that’s widely accepted by a number of bookies. Fast payments, a secure platform, and you can even order a MasterCard debit card connected to your account. Some bookies won’t let you participate in promotions when using Skrill, but plenty still do. Click here to read more about Skrill.
This might be the most “old fashioned” payment method, but it’s still one of the most popular with the high rollers. It isn’t as fast as most of the eWallets, but bank transfers have been getting a lot faster in recent years. Head here to look at all the pros and cons of using Bank Transfer betting sites.
