ClickandBuy as an online payment and money transfer service was founded in 1999 in Cologne, Germany under the company name of ClickandBuy International Ltd. After a few years the company moved its headquarters to London England and was for its financial services therefore controlled and regulated by the renowned UK Financial Service Authority (FSA), tasks nowadays carried out by the Financial Conduct authority (FCA) and the Bank of England.

ClickandBuy claims to be active in more than 30 countries, having 14 million users and making online payments possible in 120 currencies at more than 16.000 web shops and other internet pay-sites.

What is ClickandBuy?

ClickandBuy is an e-wallet, an online electronic wallet, that needs to be uploaded with money from another (regular) bank account (by bank transfer), by a transfer from a credit / debit card account, a pre-paid card or another e-wallet. Once the account is funded with money online payments can be made.

This also means a customer who wants to use the ClickandBuy payment system needs to open a (free) account on the service´s website. Once this procedure is completed ClickandBuy will provide the customer with a username that, together with a chosen password, can be used to directly make payments on the internet (provided of course the account is funded with money).

As the customer´s personal and financial data only once is provided to ClickandBuy and subsequently only the username and password is used to make online payments the customer´s identity is completely shielded from the recipient, making the payments virtually anonymous.

ClickandBuy will take care of your online payments while protecting your data and while maintaining the highest possible standards of safety and security, as is the case nowadays with almost all online e-wallet services.

Just like other e-wallets also ClickandBuy is a very fast, easy and practical way to make online payments and online casino deposits. And no need to “mess around” with personal and possibly fraud sensitive data about yourself and your (main) bank- or credit card account every time you make a deposit online.

As stated, to be able to use the ClickandBuy services you need to register yourself, completely free of charge, as a client on the ClickandBuy website. You’ll have to provide your personal data, as well as the data concerning the bank account or credit card account that will fund your ClickandBuy account.

ClickandBuy will (to verify the validity of your funding account) debit your bank account with a minimal amount of money (that you’ll get refunded after the registration procedure is finished). After ClickandBuy has checked and approved the provided data you can use your username and password to pay in over 16.000 internet shops, in more than 30 countries and in 120 different currencies.

The ClickandBuy system supports more than 43 payment methods for account-holders to upload money to the account. However, the availability of these funding methods depends on the country in which the customer is residing and some charge rather hefty fees for their services. For upgrading with a credit card, for example, a 3,9% fee is charged.

To keep track of your balance and all your ClickandBuy transactions you need to, with your username and password, login into your online account on the ClickandBuy website. There the account-holder can manage the account and has an overview of all activity that has taken place with it.

A practical feature attached to the ClickandBuy system is their mobile application with which you can manage your payments by logging into your ClickandBuy account on your iOS or Android operated smartphone. The service also offers “Buyer Protection” by which buyers can be refunded by the service, in case a purchase made with the service has gone wrong.
