Moneybookers is a “money transmitter” that enables
any business or consumer to send and receive payments both
securely and cost-effectively.
Using Moneybookers is like using a bank account
with a switch (debit) card, but without the card. Because
a credit card is not involved, nor a is it a credit system,
no-one needs to trust you - demanding proof of credit-worthiness
- nor can a bank draw you into (credit card) debt.
Moneybookers enables any business or consumer
with an email address to securely and cost-effectively send
and receive payments online – in real-time!
Use Moneybookers to:
- Send money via email from your credit card or bank account
- Make online purchases
- Collect money via email
Moneybookers delivers a product ideally suited
for small businesses, online merchants, individuals and others
currently underserved by traditional payment mechanisms. As
a true global payment solution, we welcome customers from
every nation of the earth!
Moneybookers Limited is a money transmitter
