How to open a NETELLER Account? 

If you want to open a NETELLER account, this will take around 10 minutes of your time. Opening a NETELLER ewallet is a simple procedure. 


Desktop and mobile

Neteller is a digital ewallet, so you need a desktop or a smartphone device to open an account. Neteller ewallet works on iOS and Android, and you can download the Neteller app for free. 

ID document

You will need to present your identification documents for the verification process, either your official ID card, driver's license, or passport.


Step 1 - go to the NETELLER website

Go to the NETELLER website and find the registration button in the upper right corner of the website or the middle of your screen. By clicking the JOIN FOR FREE button, a simple registration form will open. 

Neteller website offers several language options. If your mother tongue is not listed, choose the language option that is the most suitable for you. 

Step 2 - Fill in the NETELLER registration form

To open a NETELLER account, you need to submit personal information: first name, last name, country of residence, and primary currency. 

Always enter data as in your official documents, as you will later have to verify your ewallet account and confirm your email address via a link sent to the given address. 

Enter your email and password for your NETELLER account

Step 3 - Submit NETELLER registration form 

To complete account registration, you have to agree to the NETELLER Terms of Use and Privacy Notice. By doing so, you will also allow NETELLER to send you marketing messages and notifications. If you don't want to receive marketing content, you can cancel those in your account's settings anytime. 

Step 4 - First deposit and receiving funds to NETELLER

Neteller will require additional information before you can make the first deposit or receive funds. In your account, add:  
  • Country of residence
  • Address
  • City of residence
  • Postal code
  • Date of birth

Once your account is set up, you will be able to make the first deposit and receive a limited amount via money transfer. If you want to use the Neteller wallet's full potential, your account needs to be fully verified. 

Step 5 - Verify your account 

Verifying a NETELLER account is straightforward. Verification is a procedure in which your registration data is compared to your official documents. 

Clients are asked to use a desktop webcam or NETELLER app to verify their accounts. It is an automatic process, which takes a couple of minutes. Users can either upload or take a photo of their ID and use the cam for a portrait snapshot.  

NETELLER needs between 24 and 48 hours to approve your account. You will receive an email notification once the account has been verified. 

Verification unlocks all NETELLER account features and limits. 

Step 6 - Save your login data 

Neteller is a secure wallet so that you will need a password and a 6-digit verification code. Your password should have at least eight characters, one letter, and one number or symbol. 

Always keep your login data safe, and don't share it with anyone.
