Today I got an email from MoneyBookers letting me know that they updated my account from personal to commercial. So, now I have to pay fees(2,9% for EU). If you are using MB to receive money from Envato then you should know that in one day you can get similar email, like my. According to their terms if you get money from selling stuff you should make your account commercial.

I would suggest this is theft. For a $2000+ monthly transfers, SWIFT is just $35 while MB fee is $60+ so just to remind you, I said goodbie to PP and MB long time ago.

^ I use Payoneer to withdraw money from envato, directly. Moneybookers only to get money from my partners which was a good solution until now.

So you are using Moneybookers for Envato or not? I’m confused.
