NETELLER showed a rapid growth in revenues in the last couple of years. Compared to PayPal with “128 million active registered accounts” and 110 billion EUR value of transactions in 2012, NETELLER is still the much smaller competitor. But with a growing rate of around 20% PayPal grew slower than NETELLER did with more than 34% in the first half year of 2014 alone. Ebay acquired PayPal in 2002 and is benefiting from their own eWallet provider. PayPal revenues represented 40% of eBay Inc. revenues in 2012, showing the strength of that acquisition a decade ago. As of 2015, PayPal is now seperated from the mother company Ebay.

PayPal will probably keep growing with a rate of 20% within the next years. Regarding much smaller fees for personal accounts, but especially for merchants, it will be interesting to see how NETELLER will compete with PayPal.

Aiming for the US market, especially the huge online gambling market, could be a way for NETELLER to outperform PayPal within the next 5-7 years. The full consequences of PayPal leaving the Ebay. Inc. group can not be foreseen at this time.

In most parts Skrill (Moneybookers) and NETELLER are pretty much equal when it comes to their VIP membership. But there are still some differences. With recent fee changes, there are even less differences between the two companies. It can be expected that this trend continues and that the both will be mostly the same in the future.


  • Usage for Online Gambling:
    PayPal is not offered by most online gambling providers while NETELLER is widely accepted in that segment.
  • Fees:
    Even though the fees in this PayPal vs NETELLER comparison are provided for personal accounts and are much lower than those for business accounts at PayPal, it is easy to see the huge advantage of NETELLER over PayPal when it comes to their fees. Especially the fees for receiving money and using the PrePaid Card cannot compete with those of NETELLER.
  • VIP Program:
    PayPal does not offer any VIP program, while NETELLER is almost 100% free for any use and offers high rewards with our eWallet-Optimizer NETELLER Program.
  • Cashback:
    We offer the highest available reward program at NETELLER along with plenty of other benefits. PayPal does not offer any kind of cashback for transfers to merchants at all.

Pro PayPal

  • Biggest e-wallet provider:
    With the acquisition of Ebay PayPal became the best known and biggest e-wallet provider on the net. Because of this, most merchants accept the higher fees and offer PayPal as their payment service to be able to reach as many customers as possible.
  • Safety:
    With having an official bank status as Luxembourg-based bank, PayPal is a safe e-wallet provider.

Most people have a PayPal account for smaller transfers or when they buy things at Ebay. But when it comes to bigger transactions, especially for online gamblers and Forex traders, NETELLER is the way better option. The fees are not even comparable for these two e-Wallet providers.

We only provide Skrill and NETELLER with our value added eWallet-Optimizer program, because we want our clients to benefit from the best conditions available.
