Information about locked Skrill and NETELLER accounts for clients from Crimea

First of all, we can confirm that all accounts for clients from Crimea got locked. However, if those clients can proof that they are living outside the Crimea, Skrill will unblock their accounts again. Clients just need to provide a written proof of residence, similar to the verification documents right after their account registration. Once the document has been reviewed, the account will be reopened and can be used without any restrictions.

Skrill and NETELLER also confirmed, that it’s possible for Crimea clients to send money from their account to a non-Crimea account.

No other changes for the Russian Market

Besides the fact that clients from outside the European Union are not able to receive a new Skrill or NETELLER MasterCard, there are no further changes for those clients. All other services will stay available.

What happens if you already have a NETELLER or Skrill MasterCard?

As of 25 November 2016, Skrill and NETELLER will no longer offer their PrePaid MasterCard Services for clients from almost all non-SEPA countries. The plastic card, as well as the virtual MasterCard, cannot be used anymore after that date. If you still want to use your cards to spend or withdraw some of your funds, please make sure to do it in time. Otherwise you can only withdraw your money via bank transfer.

The following table shows all countries where the Skrill and NETELLER MasterCard will be terminated by November 25th 2016.

Please note, clients from Russia and China can use their old cards until they expire. However, they will not be able to order a new MasterCard.

Can nigerians use skril and be able to withdraw funds

Hi Patrick. Unfortunately, Nigeria is a banned country. You are not allowed to use Skrill services. A violation gives Skrill the right to suspend or terminate your Skrill Account at any time. ecoPayz might be an alternative for you. Please check the following link for more information about our ecoPayz Bonus Program: https://www.eWallet-Optimizer.com/ecopayz/ecopayz-cashback-program/

I think that this “internal business decision” is highly related with the Brexit since they’re locking themselves only to sustain SEPA members. How sad, but there’s no more advertisings about the Net+ Mastercard or either the Skrill one as before, it seems they’re getting rid of it. Without those cards, what’s the point of using either proccessor?

But well, what could we do? Goodbye Neteller and Skrill. Burn in hell.

Hi and thanks for your comment. It is a business decision indeed and we don’t like it either. However, ecoPayz is a good alternative and they still offer their MasterCard to all clients. Besides that, they have lower fees for some of their services, compared to NETELLER & Skrill, and they also have a great and fast customer support. Check out the ecoPayz Program and let us know if you have any questions:
https://www.eWallet-Optimizer.com/ecopayz/ecopayz-cashback-program/

You can also add us on Skype “eWallet-Optimizer” or send a mail to info@ewallet-optimizer.com

The problem with Ecopayz is that there’s almost NO PTC sites like Neobux or Clixsense that use it. There’s a way to use Paypal or Payza and then transfer to Ecopayz?

Unfortunately, there is no direct way to send money from PayPal or Payza to ecoPayz. The only option to deposit would be through a bank transfer or credit card. We also can try to help to move money from Skrill/NETELLER to ecoPayz. Please send a mail to info@ewallet-optimizer.com to discuss that would be an option for you.

Hello,

I want to ask can i transfer money from Neteller to ecoPayz?

Hey,
you can either use your NETELLER MasterCard to fund your account or contact us so we can check if we can help you to get started.
Enjoy your new eWallet and let us know for any further questions :)

Hi everyone, I’m from Brazil and I was planning to use my Mastercard Net+ during an eurotrip this December, mostly Spain and Italy. So, I’m from a banned country (as my plastic), but, anyway, I was wondering if it could be possible to use it on this travel to these NON-SEPA coutries. Could you tell me? Thanks in advance!

Hi Rafael, NETELLER will deactivate all cards at the end of the week, so you cannot use your card anymore, even if you are in a country where the card is still available. However, our partner ecoPayz still offers a MasterCard for all their clients. Please take a look at our ecoPayz Bonus Program. Besides benefits like increased transfer volume, lower FX fees, monthly bonus payments and an instant VIP upgrade to Gold Status, you will also receive a free MasterCard. Check our ecoPayz Bonus Program and let us know if you have any further questions: https://www.eWallet-Optimizer.com/ecopayz/ecopayz-cashback-program/

Hi there. Thanks for the information. I am from Australia so this decision has also hurt me as I enjoyed using the Net+ and Skrill card services. I wonder if Optimal had never purchased Skrill, whether Skrill would have done this as well. Somehow I doubt it.

Im looking at Ecopayz and there merchant access seems to be extremely limited. Any idea if they plan on expanding their merchant base? Such as becoming a portal for payments to Pinnacle Sports? And is the card available for Australians?
Thanks

Hi Joseph and thanks for your comment. ecoPayz will definitely increase their availability and you can expect to find new merchants really soon. It needs some time to add them all, but it’s safe to say that a lot of new poker rooms, sports books and forex providers will be added during the next weeks and months.

Regarding the ecoPayz MasterCard, the card is available for Australian clients as well and you can have up to 3 free ecoPayz MasterCards (EUR/USD/GBP) for your account.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Hello,
I have an italian Neteller Net+ card, which is not banned, as Italy is a SEPA country. I will travel to Bosnia, Serbia and Montenegro in december. Will I be able to pay and withdraw money with my Net+ card in those countries?

Hi,

you will not have any troubles using the card anywhere in the world. Please note that only the country of issueing the card matters. Since you are from a SEPA country, you can keep using your card worldwide.

Hello,
I am from Serbia. I dont see my country in the two lists. Could you tell me please what will happen with my mastercard?

Hi and thanks for your comment!

Unfortunately, Serbia is not a SEPA country and thus you will not be able to use your MasterCard after the 25th of November 2016.

If you want to keep using a MasterCard, you should use ecoPayz instead, where you can still receive a free MasterCard in Serbia.

So in 25th of November will I be able to use my card?

Hi again,

yes, you should be able to use the MasterCard until 23.59 o’clock (UTC-7). However this exact timing has not been confirmed by NETELLER, so please be aware you might not be able to use the card anymore even earlier in the day. Sorry I cannot give a more concrete answer.
