What is MoneyBookers?
Neteller is money transfer system which allows transfer between merchants and individuals. It is also an e-wallet stored-value service owned and operated by publicly traded British global payments company Optimal Payments PLC.
Moneybookers, also known as Skrill, is an online wallet that makes purchasing goods and services on the internet easier and safer for consumers. When making payments to an online company, consumers have three basic options: give out very sensitive banking information including routing numbers, providing credit card numbers, often with the extra security code on the back of the card, or using an online wallet like Moneybookers. Instead of having to provide personal payment information on websites for a product or service, users can simply provide their email address in conjunction with Moneybookers where the selection is available.
Moneybookers is a popular choice for bettors and punters who want to play at online gaming sites. Many online wallets limit the ability to make purchases or fill accounts at these types of websites regardless of where the consumer is located and the laws of their countries. Setting up a Skrill, Moneybookers, account is free and easy to do. All the user has to do is go to the Moneybookers website and fill in the personal information that is used on that site only for identification and money transfers to a personal bank account if desired. This information is never provided to any sales or service website. Once the membership is complete all that is ever needed to create a transaction is the email address used to open the account. With a free account users can pay for Skype, make eBay purchases or shop at over 70,000 online stores that accept Moneybookers as a payment option.
There are very few fees associated with a Moneybookers account. It will never cost you anything to send money to someone, make a purchase from a store, or load a casino site with funds. It does not cost any money to receive money from winnings at casinos or book making sites. The only time there is a charge is when you want to transfer money from your Moneybookers account to a land based banking institution.
Opening an account at Moneybookers provides many extra bonuses that are free for users such as a prepaid MasterCard® that allows users instant access to their online funds when shopping offline or for other purchases at companies both on and offline that do not offer Moneybookers options. The Moneybookers MasterCard® is especially useful for vendors, online marketers and game players who wish to have easy access to money earned and/or won online quickly.
There is a small fee to upgrade to a VIP account which offers many valuable extra options such the ability to withdraw money in multiple currencies, save money on transaction costs, a personal account manager and gaming invitations, cash back campaigns and more.
Access to Funds
One reason using Moneybookers accounts to make purchases online or fill casino accounts is that the money is automatically available to those sources when you send it. If a betting account is filled using a credit card or by a bank transfer there can be a delay of up to 4 days before the money is available for play. With an online wallet like Moneybookers, the money is in your account immediately.
Almost all online gaming websites offer a Moneybookers option for payment. Online gaming websites love when their players use Moneybookers because it allows those players to get in on the action without delay. Some even provide special incentives and bonuses for using Moneybookers as a payment source.
Moneybookers Customer Support
Customers can get in touch with a representative at Moneybookers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are easy access links on the site for email and postal mail as well as by phone. Help is available in 12 different languages for global accessibility.
Verifying a Moneybookers Account
When a new user fills out the information on the sign up page, they are sent an email from Moneybookers. The email will contain a special verification code that can be clicked, or copied and pasted to the initial sign in page. This lets Moneybookers know that you own the email and the account is verified.
After verifying an account the user can then choose a method to upload money to the account from an existing bank account or credit card. In order to register the source of funding, users must fill in contact information necessary and allow Moneybookers to withdraw a small initial deposit that varies depending on the currency. It is usually an amount between $1.01 and $2.99 US. Once you see the amount on your credit card or bank statement, you will need to enter the actual amount withdrawn on the Moneybookers’ confirmation page to finalize your account. This initial procedure may take a few days to complete, so get started several days before needing to make purchases.
