What is Neteller?
Neteller is a popular e-Wallet that allows its users to send and receive money in a variety of different currencies. The company was founded in 1999 in Canada and, back in 2004, they made the decision to move the company to the Isle of Man in the United Kingdom so that they could be closer to the European Market. They have since expanded and you will now find Neteller offices in London, Sofia, Montreal, and Vienna, and Neteller is now available to use in more than 200 countries. In fact, millions of people use this as their primary means of sending and receiving money securely. Due to its popularity, it is a banking method that you now find at the majority of online casinos.

- You will be taken to a form where you will have to input information such as your email address, the country you are living in, and the type of currency that you would like to use. In order to avoid exchange fees, we highly recommend that you use the same type of currency that you use at the sportsbook that you have an account with.
- Once you have done this, click on “Continue” and you will be taken to another page where you will have to input information such as your first name, your surname, the address that you live at, the date you were born, your gender, and your mobile number. You will then be asked to select 3 security questions with answers. Click “Continue” and you will be asked to confirm your answers.

N.B. You will be provided with an Account ID and a Secure ID. We really recommend that you take note of these somewhere as you will require them whenever you want to log in to your account.
You Will Need to Verify Your Neteller Account
Before you have full access to your Neteller account, you will need to verify yourself. Until you have completed this process, you will have some strict withdrawal limits applied to your account. How do you complete the verification process? We will explain it below as clearly as possible.
Go to the settings section and enter the verification section. Once you are here, you should find “Option 2 Fast” link and click on it. You will then be taken to a page where you can upload photos of acceptable documents to prove your identity. We should note here that you have to have some money in your account in order to go through with the verification process.
What documents are accepted to prove your identity? Well, you can send them a photo of your passport, ID card, or your driver’s license. If you go for the driving license or ID card, then you will need to send them an image of the front and back. As well as this, you will have to send them a photo of yourself holding a white sheet of paper with “Neteller” written on it and the date.
Once you have completed this process, you will need to wait patiently for them to verify your identity. Some e-Wallets will also ask you to send proof of your address, but Neteller makes use of all the latest technology to do that for you. However, this technology is not available in some countries, so if this option is not working for you then you will have to upload the necessary documents to prove that you are living where you say you are. You can send them a photo of a bank statement or a utility bill to verify your address. However, it is important that it is not more than 3 months old.
If you follow their instruction to the letter, then your account with be verified pretty quickly.
When your account has been verified, you will receive an email to let you know.

Our Opinion about Neteller
In our opinion, Neteller is a good option for those who want to receive and send money online. Whenever you have to make a quick payment to somebody, Neteller allows you to do so within minutes and without a lot of fuss. The fact that Neteller provides all of their customers with plenty of deposit and withdrawal options is something else that we like about this e-Wallet.
Another great thing about Neteller is that they have an app that iOS and Android users can download to their devices. However, if you have a Windows or Blackberry device, there is no app available for you at the moment. However, do not be too upset as there is every chance that they will change this in the near future. The app gives you the option of checking your balance, withdrawing money, depositing money, and making a transfer. We download the app to test it out for ourselves and we found it to be very user friendly. You will come across no issues when using this app.
However, we do have an issue with them, and you can probably already guess what that is. That is right, we have an issue with their fees. The fees that they charge are higher than other e-Wallets out there such as PayPal and Skrill. However, if you have no issues with the fees that we just mentioned above, you will enjoy using Neteller.
