Deposits with Credit or Debit Cards

Deposits with Credit or Debit Cards

Processing Time

Several hours. In some circumstances, the processing center may need to initiate an inquiry into your payment. If this happens, it may take longer for the funds to be posted to your account. If you follow the directions carefully, the chances that the processing center will need to interfere will be reduced significantly.



Required documents

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

  • A scanned copy or photo of your passport.
  • A scanned copy or photo of the credit/debit card (front and back). On the front, you should be able to see the cardholder's full name, the "valid" date of the card, the name of the bank that issued the card and the first six and the last four digits of the card number (the rest of the digits must be covered). The copy or scan of the reverse side should show the cardholder's signature. The CVC2/CVV2 code must 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 the Payments Department a scan of the official confirmation letter from the issuing bank verifying that you are the cardholder. The document must contain the card number, your full name and bear the stamp of the bank that issued the card.

If you use more than one card to make the deposit, please provide a scanned copy of each card.

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


  1. Log in to myAlpari and go to the "Transfer Funds" – "Fund Deposit" section. Choose your credit/debit card type, your deposit currency and the account you want to transfer funds to.
  2. Click "Continue". Fill in the information required by the processing center and click "Submit".
  3. After you enter your credit/debit card information, a check will automatically be run to determine if your card has been activated in either the or program.1
  • If your card has already been activated in either the Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode program, you can enter your personal code in the special pop-up window. This code is used at all participating online merchants (you can learn more about your personal password at your issuing bank). By entering your password, the issuing bank confirms your identity as the cardholder, allowing you to make your transaction in secure mode.
  • If your card has not yet been authorized in the Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode program, all deposits made by credit or debit card are made normally.
  1. Go to your "Fund Transfer History" in myAlpari to check the status of your payment. If you see the status "Processing", it means that your request has been accepted. After you see the status "Successful", log in to your trading platform to confirm that the funds have been posted to your account.

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

  • Deposits to Alpari accounts can only be made from a credit or debit card in the name of the account holder.
  • The minimum transfer amount is 5 EUR / 5 USD.
