Required documents

You will need to provide our Payments Department with the following documents:

  • Scanned copy of the passport of the cardholder.
  • Scanned copies or photos of each credit/debit card used in the transfer (front and back). Scans or photos of the front side should show the cardholder's name, the "valid" date of the card, the name of the bank that issued the card and the first 6 and the last 4 digits of the card number (the rest of the digits should be covered). For the back side, the cardholder's signature should be visible, but the 3-digit CVC2/CVV2 code should be covered. See the example
  • If you are transferring funds from a prepaid or virtual credit card (one where the cardholder's name is not shown), you will need to send our payments department a scan of the official confirmation letter from the issuing bank, verifying that you are the cardholder.

If you are using more than one card to transfer funds, then multiple scanned copies or photos can be uploaded in one go.

You may upload scans of your passport and credit/debit card to myAlpari in the "My Account" – "Client Profile" section.

Important information

Please keep the following in mind when making a deposit with your credit or debit card:

  • This service is available to clients who have the One-Click Payment option within myAlpari.
  • Deposits to Alpari accounts can only be made from a credit or debit card in the name of the account holder.
  • When funds are transferred from a credit or debit card, they will automatically be deposited to a segregated transitory account denominated in the deposit currency (either EUR or USD), which is created automatically when a deposit from a credit or debit card is made.
  • After making a deposit to your account using a credit or debit card, you will only be able to transfer funds from this account to another one of your accounts at Alpari or to a bank account opened in your name (via wire transfer).
  • Transfers from third parties are not accepted. Funds that are not accepted are returned to the sender.

Please Note:

  1. You will only be able to make a deposit to your account from a Visa Electron card if you know the CVV2 code. You will also need to call your issuing bank to confirm that your card is set up for making remote payments.
