Please see below for fuller details of each of the methods you can use to deposit funds in your account.

Anti-money laundering requirements guide the payment mechanisms we can accept, while other parties' processes can affect the time it takes. For our part, we make it as simple and quick as possible to fund your account, and we do not charge for any deposit method.

The payment mechanisms which we can accept - including possible charges from third parties - are outlined below. Note that we do not accept payments through AXS Stations. Please include your IG account number as a payment reference when funding your account.

Please also note that third-party payments and cash payments are prohibited. Finally, for all credit and debit card payments, the minimum funding amount is $200 by card, or the equivalent in the currency of your account. There is no minimum amount for other funding methods.
