How to open and verify a Moneybookers account



Signing up for an account at Moneybookers is easy and will only take a few minute. Choose Personal account sign up and enter the details as shown on below model.

After you have opened your account, in order to fund your Moneybookers account you must verify the account. To ensure that you are the account holder, an e-mail will be sent to you with a verification code. (Note: It may take up to two days for customers to receive the verification code) This code must be used to activate your account. An email will be sent to your registered email address with instructions how to activate your account by using the verification code provided. You can also view in the model below the registration page inside the Moneybookers account.

Once your account has been activated you can choose to register a credit/debit card for your Moneybookers account. Click on Register Card from within your Moneybookers account and as shown on below model. When the details of the card(s) have been entered Moneybookers will withdraw an amount between 1.01 and 2.99 (according to the currency of your Moneybookers account).

Check your bank statement for the specific amount that has been taken out and write that amount inside the section as showed in below model inside your Moneybookers account.

You need to check your Moneybookers account (as seen above) and see in what currency the system wants you to enter the verification amount – then you need to find this amount in your statement & place it in the field.

Note: if in your online banking account you don’t see the amount in the currency you are requested to enter – you may need to wait for your monthly statement (in paper) to find the transaction and see the original amount withdrawn.

If you are verifying a bank account (not a card) the process is practically the same. It is just that you need to enter the code of the transaction (not the amount deducted).

Once your account has been verified you may start using your account to send and receive funds online. Receiving funds to your Moneybookers account is free of charge and usual fees for making a withdrawal is generally €1.80 for bank transfer and €3.50 with a check. The verification process also allows your Moneybookers account’s limits to be raised.
