Deposit with bank cards

In South Africa, the most popular way to fund an IQ Option account is by using a debit or credit card. The card must be valid, registered in your name and support international online transactions.

To use this method, you need:

  • Access the deposit menu on the IQ Option website or app.
  • Select a Visa or Mastercard when choosing a deposit method.
  • Specify the amount of replenishment from $10 and fill in the card details: your card number, cardholder's name and CVV.

  • A one-time password will be sent to your mobile to confirm the transaction. Enter the 3D secure code in the special field and complete the transaction.

Please note that in order to replenish your account with a Visa card, you need to go through verification.

When you make a deposit, your bank card is linked to your account by default. The next time you make a deposit, you won't need to enter your details again. You will only have to choose the desired card from the list.

Payment via electronic payment systems

Many traders prefer to use convenient e-wallets due to the simplicity and fast speed of transactions. At the same time, IQ Option does not charge a commission for making a deposit! In South Africa, you can choose from several e-wallets: Advcash or Perfect Money. For this, you need:

  • Go to the deposit menu on the IQ Option website or app.
  • Select the e-wallet in which you have an account.
  • Specify the replenishment amount, mark the agreement with the terms of cooperation and click "Proceed to Payment".

  • Enter the email address and password you used for Advcash or Perfect Money, and click Proceed to Payment.
  • In the window that opens, confirm the correct details and payment information, and then complete the transaction.
  • Once your transaction is successfully completed, a confirmation window will appear.

It is worth noting that the investor and trader need to start with small investments so that in case of an error they do not lose the entire deposit. When the user has fully worked out and is confident in his strategy, he can increase the deposit, since its replenishment leads to the ability to set a large amount of entry into the transaction, therefore, the profit will also increase.

Deposit via internet banking

Bank transfer is considered secure, which makes it ideal for transferring large amounts of money. At the same time, a bank transfer may take a little longer than other methods. Funds can arrive within minutes, but may take several business days to process. To transfer funds from a bank account to IQ Option, you need:

  • Go to the deposit menu on the IQ Option website or app.
  • Choose a bank: FNB, ABSA, Standard bank, Nedbank or Investec.
  • Specify the amount of replenishment, put a mark on the agreement with the terms of cooperation and click "Deposit".
  • In the newly opened page, enter your personal account of the selected Internet bank.
  • Confirm payment information and complete the transaction.

  • Verification adds an extra layer of security and protection to your account, such as two-factor authentication and an email verification process!
  • Only a fully verified IQ Option account can withdraw profits generated from trades.

To pass identity verification, an investor or trader enters his personal account and selects the "Verification" menu. A link will open where you need to go through several items, such as email confirmation and personal data. The broker may ask for scans of certain documents to verify your identity (you can use your driver's license, passport or national identity card).

All data is requested to ensure the security of funds, transactions and personal data of the investor or trader. Also, no online trading platform will allow you to withdraw funds without passing verification. Verification can take from a few minutes to 2 business days, so take care of it in advance.


What is the minimum deposit for IQ Option?

The minimum deposit is only $10. If you have opened an account with South African rand, then the minimum deposit will be 180 ZAR.

In any case, you can contact the technical support service in a live chat on the site or in the trade room. Support responds very quickly and will definitely solve your issue.
