So, I've progressed to the Smarkets sign-Up Offer (and also going to use them as Exchange). I'm ready to make a deposit but they'll charge 2% for Debit Card deposits. Should I sign up to Skrill and deposit via them? There's a Bank Transfer option but not sure whether there's a fee (as it's Malta) and that takes approx 5 days to clear. What have others done please?

Edit: I can see that I need to use Card to qualify for the freebie but, going forward what do others use please?

Edit x2: I also meant to type '2.5%' (raises eyes to ceiling)

Evening,

I don't think I've ever paid a deposit fee with any bookmaker except for Mr Green.
I've been with SMarkets for several years and have never had to pay a fee for debit card deposits?

Just logged on to check and they charge 2.5% for visa credit card / mastercard but visa debit cards are free.
Maybe its changed for the sign up, as I say its been years since I signed up, but ongoing visa debit / solo / neteller / skill / bank transfers are free.

I only ever use visa debit.
