In case you use Moneybookers and didn’t noticed it already there is new option available. Now you can have standard MasterCard attached to your Moneybookers account. This can give you instant access to your funds without waiting some extra days while sending your money from MB to your bank account. I think this is a good news. I already signed up for my card.

Have you tried it already? Any thoughts, comments?

Hate to be posting questions that have already been answered in the past, but how big is the fee-difference between paypal and moneybookers ? since there’s a lot of hubbub with paypal, and I can’t seem to be able to get that damn 4 letter code to work, I was thinking of switching over. Thanks, and sorry for asking this again if it’s been asked already.

Yes, just checked and it’s only for EU residents.

I can’t seem to find it, where is it?

when i logged in I got a big advertisement. But you can access the Mastercard section manualy. log-in to your account and on your left there is menu that says Summary, History, View limits etc. there is also title called My MasterCard.

Since it’s limited to EU only it could be that they’re not offering this to those who haven’t confirmed their address. You has to have fully verified account to be able to get your MasterCard, but it’s easy. You have to provide your adress. they will send you a regular letter to your post box. when you receive it – go back to moneybookers.com and provide the number that was in the letter. The second step is to send a scan of your Passport or drivers license.

Mine is on it’s way right now :)

They just wanted some scanned ID and that’s it.

Beware, the currencies are only GBP , EUR, USD , PLN and if you live in a country without those currencies, you have to pay 1,99% from every transaction with your moneybookers card :( Plus the fee for withdrawing money via ATM machine is 1,8 EUR . The daily limit for ATM withdrawal is only 250 EUR and daily limit for paying in shops etc. is 1000 EUR .

So it’s not that great, but still :)

I got it, the credit card looks ugly but I think it’s a wonderful option to have a side account to paypal if things go wrong. Paypal made also an affiliate rechargeable credit card here in Italy, but they need to be charged manually it’s not linked like the one of moneybookers. I would reccomend to give it a try. :)

Didn’t they said something that you’re able to change limits later? 250EUR via ATM a day sucks. I knew about the 1.8EUR commission, but hope the limit could be raised. If it works as planned this will be the fastest way to get my money. because usually I got money from Envato on 15th or 16th (time zone differences) and then have to wait some 3 or 4 days to withdraw it to my bank. Now with the card i was hoping to get the money out in ATM and use cash in the same day. 1.8Eur for a single ATM operation is not much but if you have to pay 1.8EUR for each 250EUR this is not good.

That’s right. The limit is 250 EUR and there is NO way to bump it up – I tried, but no luck.
