It states on their website? Once you've signed up for your account and made your first deposit you should receive your Net+ Prepaid Card within a few days

Thank you. Yes, it stated on their website, but there is a tiny problem with that. It says between 2-21 business days. Not really easy to guess when I'm getting the card with their statement.

You should expect more than couple days when not living in Europe. I would say noticing you live in New Zealand then it might be nearer 2-3 weeks but you never know could be a week :)

I got my mastercard yestserday. It took 8days or 6 business days, so I am quite impressed with Neteller.(Also it took only a few minutes for verifying my documents and it was really easy process. I didn't need to send any email, just click "uplaod" and upload scanned docs.)

I withdrew my winnigs that was in Neteller account this morning, using the card. There was a fee of $6 something for cash withdraw which is high to compare to my other credit cards or Debit card that was issued locally. But, when I use debit/credit card or bank transfer for withdraw on online casino, I have to pay fees to bank, so not much complain for fees they charge.

I am very happy with Neteller service but I remember in another thread, somebody mentioned it is not easy to use Neteller for people in Canada, it is quite hassle to verify docs for people in Canada, that's what I was told.

Not quite sure why it has to be different between here and Canada.

But it is a good ewallet for me(I went to shopping spree with my winnings today).

If you go on a shopping Spree again, then remember that you don't need to take your money out from an ATM. It's a normal card so just use it directly at the stores, and there's no fee at all :)
I love this too, and I never need to mix it up with my bank account. That I use for my normal life.

Thanks, that's a really good tip. Hope I win something nice again very soon and hope you do same.

Neteller can't be used for gambling purposes in Canada anymore, and I noticed when I reopened my account that the only way to fund it is by bank wire, and you really can't use it to buy anything either. So it's not that convenient or even useful for Canadians.

Quite surprised to hear that and wondering why. Hope you guys don't have any problem with any other ewallets for gamble. This is first time for me to use ewallet for gamble-I have paypal account for long time, but not much online casino accept payapl at the moment, so I only used Debit/Credit card until recently-, and I think ewallet is really convenient when it comes about withdrawal.

While the card itself is great, the ATM fees are a killer. I have my account in dollars (had it for years, and to change the currency,
you need to close the old one and open a new one, which I never got round to do).
So if anyone`s in the same position, just be careful, I think I lose almost €10 in conversion fees and WD fee combined when
withdrawing €100.
One thing I really appreciate (because I forget a lot) is that you can retrieve PIN on the website.

I have to agree. When you withdraw small amount, the fee is a really killer. But as somebody mentioned above, you can use the card in shops when you buy something, instead of withdrawing, in that case I believe you only pay conversion fee-but, conversion fee is still not that cheap.

I won good amount this time, so I didn't mind paying some fee, but if I only won around 100-200, I wouldn't be happy to pay a fee.

The casino I use most of time changed withdrawal process recently. Debit/Credit card withdrawal is not possible any more which left "bank transfer" as a only option before I opened an account on Neteller. And bank transfer takes quite a time and my bank charges quite a money for international wire transfer, so I am happy with Neteller at the moment. But I absolutely agree with you about being careful with fees I am charged with.

To be honest, there isn't a better option than Neteller.

It takes a lot of activity on your account, but IF you use the card / wallet frequently you earn points which can take you up to different loyalty levels.

I get 10 ATM fees refunded every month at my request and also receive the 10 highest upload fees per month.

I think this starts at Gold VIP but if you do not play much, then getting there can be a bit of a mission.

That's a good tip. But I'm not a high roller, so not quite sure if I can reach VIP level. I will check how much points I can get on each transaction and maybe I can make a plan to reach higher level.:)

Neteller was done a long time ago and recently we just lost Skrill as well. There are still a few ewallets, and it's nice because you seem to get paid quicker, but transferring funds to and from them is a bit of a hassle and the fees can be pretty high. I've been using a prepaid visa lately and it's working ok except not all casinos will pay back to it. Not that I get that many withdrawals anyhow, but when I do, it would be nice to have it go to the card. :)

I have to say i'm very happy with Skrill. Have the card as well... I also use the free security token security. E-Mail support is lame, but besides that i'm very happy there

i had a dollar account and have closed to open a Euro account, that was a good decision.
ATM you pay 4€ for 500 withdrawal a day und i can use Neteller everywhere.
I often use the Prepaid Card and for shopping and you don´t pay fee.
You get also points every time for a transfer (kinda Rakeback) all in all Neteller is a bit better than Skrill.

I use also Moneta.ru for russian websites. It makes sense to use not only one E-wallet :)

Both prepaid cards are good but NT could be a bit better than Skrill for not having to pay the yearly €10.00. :rolleyes:
