Review (ecoPayz) 2018-02-06T16:48:38+00:00


Having been established in 2000, ecoPayz is one of the longest existing and successful eWallets (remember paysafecard?) on the web. Together with Skrill and Neteller, ecoPayz stands near the top of the eWallet market, standing out from other competitors due to the benefits they provide. Alongside offering both virtual and physical prepaid cards, they are also currently used in 173 countries in more than 47 currencies. Let’s take a look deeper to find out what makes ecoPayz great.

ecoPayz Review – Account Creation

Creating an account is very simple and straightforward. After inputting a few personal details such as your email, name and adress, you need to fund your account by either a prepaid card, credit card, debit card or bank account. You can also choose the type of currency your account should be funded with. A short confirmation email will then be sent to you in order for you to verify your account which can be done quickly and painlessly. Once this is done, you can login with your email and password, accept the terms and conditions and complete the registration in a matter of a few minutes.

Unfortunately, while ecoPayz services more than 173 countries, the US is not included and US residents cannot register for an account. There are also no plans to do so in the foreseeable future.

Tip: If you take advantage of our Guru Deal, you will immediately receive Gold VIP Status right after verification without having to transfer 2.000 EUR to any merchant.

ecoPayz Review – Deposits

Deposits can be done via the following methods (fees are in brackets):

– Credit or debit card (1,69%)
– Local bank deposit (1,5-2%)
– Local Services (2-7%)
– International bank deposit (0%)
– Alternative currency deposit, including Bitcoin)

Deposits made through wire transfers usually arrive within 1-4 business days. If a payment has not been credited until then, a quick and responsive support team will ensure that your problem is solved as quickly as possible. You will need to email a copy of your payment order for your payment to be identified.

ecoPayz Review – Withdrawal

Withdrawals are possible via the following methods (fees in brackets):

– Bank transfer, credit card (10 USD)
– ecoPayz Mastercard (2%)

Wire transfers take 3 business days to process and another 5 days to arrive at the account. Alternatively, you can also use your ecoPayz Mastercard to withdraw money from any ATM instantly. For withdrawals to your bank account, there is a flat 10 USD fee. With your ecoPayz Mastercard, the fee is 2%, so it is easier to use when you want to withdraw small amounts of money.

ecoPayz Review – Security

ecoPayz’ 2-Step Verification adds an extra layer of protection to your account and ensures that only you can get access. Anyone wishing to use your ecoAccount needs to enter the login credentials in addition to a one-time-use code only sent to your smartphone. Even if your login credentials were stolen, the 2-Step Verification allows your ecoAccount to remain safe and secure.

ecoPayz Review – VIP Program

ecoPayz’ VIP program follows a different set of rules than many other e-wallet services. One can reach Gold VIP simply through verification (ID, adress, credit card) and only the Platinum Level and VIP Level require you to have the necessary transfer volume. The list of levels are below:

ClassicThe standard stage for normal customers.
SilverAfter successful verification.
GoldAfter successful ID, adress and credit card verification. (Immediately for Guru Clients)
PlatinumAfter being Gold Level for 30 days, owning an active ecoPayz Mastercard and 50.000 EUR in transfers.
VIPAfter being Platinum Level for 30 days and 250.000 EUR (only 10.000 EUR for Guru Clients) in transfers.

ecoPayz Review – Support

On Trustpilot, ecoPayz scores a 6.2/10 as a whole which is many times better than Skrill or Neteller. Unlike Skrill or Neteller, ecoPayz has also claimed its Trustpilot account and regularly comments on user feedback, offering support. Most of the problems there can be traced back to uninformed customers and less to ecoPayz services themselves.

However, with our Guru Deal, you will have personalised Skype support to ensure that you will receive help in a timely and efficient manner. If you have any problems with ecoPayz, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we are ready to help at your notice!
