    Red face Neteller: Love it :-) Hate it :-( Please tell
    We recently signed a contract with an affiliate program with 25,000 resellers a good portion of them international. Neteller was recommended, and after checking out the program it looks like a good solution for us.

    I do want feedback however from folks who use it. Can you help me out and share your experiences with me?

    I greatly appreciate your feedback.

    I used netseller (as a customer) for a while, probably close to 2 years or so. I've never had a problem with them, at least nothing that I was aware of. Working with the account and interfaces was a smooth experience, and transfers always went well.

    Thank you for your comments! I have been getting quite a bit of positive responses. If we decide to go with this program it might just effect some of you on this board. I want to make sure I don't require some of you to use a program you don't like!

    Like I said in the other thread, I love it! I can get payments from dffrent programs into my Neteller account and then do the DD from all of them to my bank account.

    Customer Service (Chat, email and tlf) is top notch and a toll free number is available for most countries.

    Thanks for the link to the other board. I posted a thread there as well. I checked out the website and will be contacting them in the morning. There seems to be an issue with corporate bank accounts. Seems that some can use them others can't. I am wondering if it could be an industry related issue. There is a lot of risk involved in online gambling and certain countries are considered high risk as well.

    Are other industry types having this same issue? According to Neteller's website it says deposit to a bank account, doesn't say personal account only or no corporate accounts.

    Anyone experiencing this issue on non gambling sites? I want to make sure I have a list of questions before I invest big bucks into integrating this program

    I'm hearing Paypal could be an option as well. Which do you prefer?

    the only thing about neteller i dont like that i know of is that anyone can use a card that they have the key info on to fund an account with. i know this because i had to cancel a card that someone got ahold of and made a deposit into their neteller account. they closed the account and reversed the charge so i can't b1tch too hard.

    i dont know how paypal is these days (on big balances) but once i did have an account froze by them for 6 months with no explaination or reason, but under the circumstances (time passage), Id go with paypal moreso if i had a choice.

    either one is likely good enough.

    PayPal is the better-known option for most people (simply b/c of what eBay has done with them). If you're planning on giving a payment option of either PayPal or NetTeller, I would say PayPal (even though both have worked like a charm for me).

    I've been doing some product comparision between Paypal and Neteller. Paypal charges to send money Neteller doesn't. A big issue for me. with either a 2% charge with a cap of $1.00 on Paypal that could possibly cost me $25,000 a month just to send money to my affiliates. Neteller doesn't charge to send. If I were to use paypal I would have to deduct that $1.00 from each check as a service charge. An option to consider.


    Another concern is the bad rep paypal seems to have with frozen accounts and poor customer service. Yet Neteller seems to be mostly associated with online gambling.

    Tough decision but I appreciate the feedback that I have been getting.

    Whoopie do. Someone contracts with an illegal operation to act as a front for washing commissions to 25,000 spammers and greed driven Adwhore affiliates. Object is to profit from hiding the money transfers from those promoting bilking billions from USA hooked gamblers. Passing US funds to 3rd world anonamous spam operations is the hurdle. Asking ABWers (thousands of the greed driven scumbags here pushing everything from gambling, porn to BHO infestations) how best to hide the salami with PayPal or Neteller, based upon middleman transfer cost.

    Watch out for step #2 by the Feds sweating these Canadian perps awaiting criminal trials. The supoenas for records showing everyone involved, and profiting, from furthering illegal online gambling operations. Following this money trail will just uncover the same Adwhore scumbag names used in other underworld affiliate advertising scams, where Gambling Ad proceeds were just part of their illicit incomes. Feds looking over the banking records funding the in & outs of paypal/neteller middlemen/fronts, and their large playas, is a government wetdream come true.

    Look. The quasi-legal and illegal activities of those needing online advertising parallels the Cocaine & Heron cartels biz plans. From Gambling to Pill pushers the obstacles to THE Plan is the same. Distribution, Drug lords, pushers, money laundering, payoff bribes, and enticing suckers with sucker bait... all requiring hiding the money trail... and unethical greed driven promoters.

    Short time ago Gambling Ads made up over half the Ad budgets & Ad views of every sleezeball Adwhore operation on the internet. Those same rats and their enablers now seek alternate ways to keep their quasi-legal and illegal operations flowing in sucker bait money. If nothing else, as the risk factors increase from exposure to the Feds, some in this industry will leave or turn to making legit affiliate activities more profitable. Obviously, PayPal or eGold, seems like a better way for someone to fulfill their contract and payoff those 25,000 affiliate spammers.... OH and change the lead fee offers Ad copy to something other then "have fun while Gambling online, the first 20.00 is on us".

    Hey times change and even Revenue magazine no longer can plaster issues with Gambling opportunities.

    I refuse to read that last post, Mike. You didn't include the usual, oft-repeated words, and so it is hard for me to understand now...
