MONEYBOOKERS ISSUE

Salaam to all memberz,

I want to ask is any1 using moneybookers system for withdrawing funds. I recently add a mb in my account but when I try to transfer my money from mb to my personal bank account they ask me to verify my addres or my bank account. I already apply for verification process about 9 or 10days before but I still dont get any letter from mb. Please advise me what I do???

And their is also an option in mb that I transfer 13 to 14dollars from mb to my personal bank account and they send money to my personal account with the attachment of some security code and than I write this code to my mb security section.

Please advise me which process is good. My personal account is in Muslim commercial Bank.

Thanks in Advance
Saad Ali.

dont use MB

I think its time for us to say Bye Bye to Moneybookers because they have started charging a huge amount on transactions. if your account is in Muslim commercial bank I would suggest you to use LFT instead.

Hi, Wire transfer charges $30

Hi,

Wire transfer charges $30 and moneybookers charges a flat fee which is approx $3. If you have any information about how to verify my bank account for mb please advised.

Thanks

not now

It used to be $3 but now things have changed. They are treating every freelancer account as merchant account so you have to pay a large amount beside $3 and there is delay too. Last time they cut $50 from my transaction so I dont use it now. If you still in doubt, experience yourself.

lft no wire transfer

I have asked to try LFT not wiretransfer. LFT costs $4.99 per transaction and your first transaction would be free so you dont even have to pay that small fee on first transaction. Best of all, it is secure and you wont have to worry about any delays and hidden cuts.

can you plz guide me what is

can you plz guide me what is lft??

Saad, Skrill is known to

Saad, Skrill is known to charge merchant fees once it identifies you as a commercial user (anyone withdrawing earnings off oDesk/any freelancing site gets counted in too). While a USD wire costs $30, a local currency wire (sent in Pak Rupees rather than dollars to your bank) costs only $4.99.

Add a new withdrawal method and Setup Wire Transfer (PKR) {Recommended in Pakistan}, follow the steps and you will get LFT setup

Hi,

Same problem i face in past, just contact skrill support staff and they will done this verification manually for you. but you need to show bank letter where u receive $10 or $15 for verification.
