Neteller To Return To The United States
The popular e-wallet Neteller is being re-opened to customers in the United States, it was reported yesterday. It has not been available in the US since 2007, when founders of the company where arrested and charged with breaking anti-gambling laws.
Neteller is online payment solution which allows customers to transfer money to other Neteller users and a wide range of merchants. It has long been a particularly popular deposit method among customers of gambling sites, which is largely the company had to leave the US market seven years ago following the introduction of the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act.
It has remained popular in several other parts of the world though, and is still used by many for depositing and withdrawing at gambling sites. It is one of the very best e-wallets on the web in terms of the services it offers and the fees it charges.
The parent company of Neteller, Optimal Payments Plc, released a statement announcing that it was returning to the US following an agreement to partner with a federally-insured financial institution within America. CEO and President of Optimal Payments Joel Leonoff said “The Neteller service and the Net+ card being launched in the US are brand new services that have been developed to meet the unique needs of the US marketplace.”
With online gambling being legalized in states such as New Jersey and Nevada, there is an opportunity for Neteller to provide its services to regulated online gambling operations. One of its competitors, Skrill, is already doing so but it is not known at this time whether Optimal Payments has yet entered into any agreements with US gambling sites.
