How do I deposit funds into my account?

To deposit funds, log in to My IG, and click ‘add funds’ next to the account you’d like to deposit into.

You can deposit funds with a credit card, debit card, PayPal account or via bank transfer.

Card

The quickest way to fund your account is by credit or debit card, as successful payments are deposited immediately.

Before funding you will need to register your chosen card. You may have up to five cards listed on your account at a time, but each card must be in your name and registered to the address you use for your IG account.

PayPal

When depositing via PayPal , enter the amount you want to deposit and click ‘confirm’.

This will direct you to the page below. Click the ‘PayPal’ button and you will be directed to the PayPal site to complete the transaction. Once you have deposited the funds, you will be automatically returned to the IG website.

After completing your first transaction, your PayPal account will be linked to IG. You can only have one PayPal account linked to IG at a time.

If you want to use a different PayPal account, please contact the helpdesk to request the removal of your original PayPal account.

Bank transfer

You can find the relevant IG details by selecting ‘learn more’ on the ‘deposit funds’ page in My IG.

Bank transfers can take up to three days, depending on your bank. You can upload a proof of payment if you’d like to trade with the funds straight away.

Should you wish to fund by bank transfer please find our details below:

Always make sure to put your full name and account ID as a reference of the payment.
