Balancing risk and reward for PointsBet
PointsBet looked to Trustly for deposit and withdrawal options that lowered processing costs while minimizing risk.
For PointsBet users, payments aren’t just a service—they are a vital part of the sports betting experience. When vetting and integrating payment providers, the PointsBet team wanted a solution that was foremost reliable and trusted in the industry and second, cost-effective.
Low approval rates due to nonsufficient funds resulting in returns can cause friction in the user experience and leave PointsBet to absorb unnecessary monetary liability.
