If you should ever run out of money at PokerStars and don’t have any money available to deposit at that moment you can always ask a friend to send you money using the PokerStars buddy transfer function. In this article we will show you exactly how you transfer money to a friend at PokerStars so that you can start funding your friends accounts at Poker Stars or the other way around.
The first thing you have to do is to make sure that you are logged in to PokerStars.com.
Click the “request” tab in the poker lobby and then click “Transfer Funds” like in the screenshot below.
You will then get a pop up box like the one below where you fill in the amount you wish to transfer and the PokerStars player ID of your friend and click the OK button.
You will then get to a new window where you can see what city the player is from. This part is there so that you can make sure that you are making the transfer to the right player at PokerStars.com
Once you hit the OK button in that last confirmation window the money will instantly be deducted from your account and then transferred to the player in question as soon as the staff at PokerStars has verified and processed your request. This is normally done within 5 minutes but it happens sometimes that you have to wait up to 30 minutes even though that is very unusual.
There is no maximum limit for the amount that you can transfer to another player but there is however a minimum limit of $10.
This is all you need to know about the buddy transfer system at PokerStars. If your friend has yet to create an account we advice you to tell him/her to use the PokerStars marketing code pbs500 in the signup process since this will give them a free $600 bonus and entries to very restricted freerolls at this Poker room.
