Instant eChecks

instant eChecks PokerInstant eChecks is probably the best poker deposit method available to United States players who hold a checking account. The process is fast and easy and the money is taken directly from your checking account just as if you were to have written an actual check. For most poker sites the money is available immediately and there is no fee unless one is imposed by your bank.

Although most rooms will credit your account immediately, there is a clearing period where your funds will not be available for withdraw. Once your funds have cleared you are then free to withdraw your original deposit back to the checking account your initial echeck deposit originated from. Keep in mind that if your funds do not clear or are returned as NSF, you will have restrictions imposed on your future echeck limits and funds most likely will never be available instantly.

If there is a problem with your echeck clearing, there might be NSF fees imposed by the poker site you are playing at and they will deduct the funds from your player account if they are available. The best part of using an instant echeck is that it is quick and simple. Unlike many other third party payment processors where an account is required and where there is usually some type of waiting period, instant echecks come straight from your bank and you get the funds right away with no waiting around.
