In order to use the NETELLER Service, you must:
5.1 be a Member; and
6. USING YOUR ACCOUNT
6.1 In order to make a Transaction, you will need to make an Upload
6.2 Purchasing electronic money
6.2.1 You may purchase electronic money by using one of the Upload options available to you depending on your country of residence. Upload options are payment services provided by third party financial institutions (for example, the issuer of the payment card you use to upload funds or third party direct banking service providers) and are not part of our service. We do not guarantee the use of any particular upload option made available, and may make changes to or discontinue the acceptance of any particular upload option at any time without following the procedure set out in section 2.2. Notwithstanding section 6.2.2 below, we shall not be responsible for the upload payment until the uploaded funds are received by us. You must provide the information requested and pass all identity and security validation and verification checks. For any Upload, you authorise us to obtain or receive funds on your behalf from your chosen payment source, less any applicable Fees, and then issue electronic money to your Account.
6.2.3 Uploads are subject to fees including currency conversion fees (if applicable). Please see section 8 for further details on fees.
6.2.4. You must not make an Upload from, or a withdrawal to, a payment instrument or bank account if you are not the named account holder. We take any violation of this requirement very seriously and will treat such actions as fraudulent acts.
6.3 Applying for Cards
6.3.1 If you reside in a supported country, you may apply for a a Card once your Account has been verified in accordance with section 6.3 .2 below. To find out if you reside in a supported country, please contact the Customer Contact Centre.
6.3.2 In order to apply for a Card, you will need to “verify” your Account by confirming your identity and where you live. Details of how to do this can be found on the Website. We may use third parties to obtain this information, which may also contain credit checks, on our behalf. You agree to us applying reasonable discretion in using and sharing relevant personal data to conduct such identity and verification checks.
6.3.3 If you receive a physical Card, you must sign it as soon as you receive it.
6.3.4 We reserve the right to refuse to issue you a Card in our sole discretion.
6.4 Using your Card
6.4.1 Your Card is not a credit card, charge card or a debit card. You can only spend to the value of the funds that you have in your Account. You can use your Card anywhere Mastercard® is accepted, however a virtual Card can only be used where a physical card is not required, for example, Transactions made online or over the phone.
6.4.2 All Transactions made using your Card are subject to:
- there being sufficient funds in your Account;
- the Merchant or financial institution being able to verify that you have sufficient funds available in your Account; and
6.4.5 Merchants such as car hire companies, hotels and other service providers will estimate the total sum of money you may spend or for which you require authorisation. The estimate may be for more than the amount you eventually spend or are charged, for example:
a. at restaurants you may be required to have a maximum of 20% more on your Card than the value of the bill to allow for any service charge added by the restaurant;
b. at “pay at pump” petrol pumps (if applicable) you may be required to have an amount equal to the maximum Transaction value permitted at the pump in your Account.
The merchant will be required to tell you the estimated amount that will be blocked in your Account and seek your consent.
This means that some of the funds on your Account may be blocked until the Merchant has settled the actual Transaction amount and accordingly, you will not be able to spend this estimated sum during this period. We will release the blocked funds without undue delay on becoming aware of the amount of the Transaction and in any event will unblock the funds immediately after receipt of the settlement request from the merchant.
6.5 Making Payments to and from your Account
6.5.1 In addition to using your Card to make Payments and Withdrawals, you can also make a Payment straight from your Account to a Merchant that accepts payment from a NETELLER account or another Member by completing the information on the “Money Out” page of the Member Site, and, in some cases, you may be able to make a Payment to or from a Merchant, directly from the website of a Merchant.
6.5.2 When making a Payment from your Account, you may not designate an amount in excess of the balance (plus the applicable Fees) in your Account at the time the request is made. If you attempt to do so, your Payment request will be denied. The funds on your NETELLER account must also be sufficient to cover any minimum Withdrawal amount. You can choose the method of Withdrawal when submitting your Withdrawal request.
6.5.3 The amount of any Payment made to your Account will be credited to your Account balance, less any applicable Fees, on receipt. If a Payment credited to your Account is reversed by the sender prior to you performing a Transaction, the amount of the reversed Payment will be returned to the sender and no Fees will be owed by you.
6.5.4 You are fully responsible for any goods or services bought by you that are paid for through your use of the NETELLER Service. Any dispute with a Merchant regarding any product or service bought by you through the NETELLER Service is between you and the Merchant and you agree that we shall not be a party to such dispute. We do not provide any warranties, representations, conditions or guarantees with respect to such goods and services.
6.5.5 Payments are subject to fees including currency conversion fees (if applicable). Please see section 8 for further details on Fees.
6.5.6 If we are late in executing a payment that you instruct us to make you may ask us to contact the recipient's payment service provider and ask them to credit it as if it had been received on the correct day.
6.5.7 We may, if requested by the payment service provider of someone trying to make a payment to you that has executed that payment late, credit it to your Account as if we received it on the correct day.
6.5.8 Transactions are displayed in your online transactions history together with the date of receipt or transmission (the credit or debit value date), the fees charged and, where applicable, any exchange rate used. Each transaction is given a unique transaction ID and shown in the transaction history. We will not alter or amend information displayed in your online transaction history. You should quote this transaction ID when communicating with us about a particular transaction. You should check your Account balance and transaction history regularly. You should report any irregularities or clarify any questions you have as soon as possible by contacting Customer Service.
6.5.9 We will send you an e-mail notification every month reminding you to log into your Account and download and/or print a copy of your transaction history.
6.5.10 You must give consent to the execution of a Transaction for it to be authorised. You agree that by pressing the “agree” button, or entering your Account ID Information (or any equivalent button or process whereby you submit the required Transaction information) you are confirming that you are providing consent for the Transaction to be processed and for the relevant Fees to be charged and deducted from your Account. All Transactions made using your PIN, your Account ID Information or any other security procedures that we require are deemed to be authorised by you. You also agree that once consent has been provided by you, the authorised Transaction can no longer be revoked. To this extent, the time of receipt of the Transaction request (and therefore the time of consent) is the time when the “agree” button has been pressed (or such equivalent button or process).
6.5.11 When you send or receive a Transaction, we will disclose your registered Account name to the recipient and/or sender to process the respective Transaction. We may also display that information in notifications sent to the recipient ad/or sender.
6.5.12 You acknowledge that your intended recipient of a Transaction from your Account is not required to accept the Transaction. If an intended recipient declines a Transaction from your Account, your Account will be re-credited with the amount of the Transaction and no Fees will be charged.
6.5.13 If you receive funds into your Account that were not intended to be transferred to you, we will be entitled to remove these funds from your Account.
6.5.14 You must ensure that the payment details you enter when making a Withdrawal are correct and complete. We will not be liable for withdrawn funds being sent to the wrong account where this is due to you providing incorrect payment details. When withdrawing to a bank account, you must ensure that the account number, sort code, IBAN and/or BIC/SWIFT are correct. If you have withdrawn funds to the wrong account, you may request that we assist you in reclaiming the funds. However, we will charge you an administration fee as displayed in the "Fees" section of the Website for doing so and we cannot guarantee that the reclaim efforts will be successful.
6.5.15 Withdrawal methods are payment services provided, at least in part, by third party financial institutions (for example, the bank where you hold a bank account). We do not guarantee the availability of any particular Withdrawal method and may make changes to or discontinue a particular Withdrawal method at any time without following the procedure set out in section 2.2 as long as there is at least one withdrawal method available to you. Where the Withdrawal payment is received by you through the involvement of a payment service provider (such as the bank where you hold a bank account), we shall not be responsible for the Withdrawal payment once the withdrawn funds are received by your payment service provider. We also reserve the right to request an alternative bank account or other withdrawal method to be used in case we are unable to process the withdrawal to your preferred withdrawal method.
6.6 Subscription Billing
6.6.1 Some online Merchants may offer goods or services which can be paid for using Subscription Billing. This means that a Payment will be deducted from your Account at regular intervals. The amount of the Payment and the intervals at which the Payment will be deducted is determined by the relevant Merchant.
6.6.2 Subscription Billing is an arrangement between you and the relevant Merchant. If you wish to amend or cancel your Subscription Billing Payment or have any query or dispute concerning your Subscription Billing Payment, you may only do this by contacting the Merchant directly and the terms and conditions set by the Merchant will apply. Once you have contacted the Merchant you should inform us. We are unable to cancel or amend Subscription Billing Payments without the consent of the Merchant. You should not cancel or otherwise reverse a Subscription Billing payment without contacting the Merchant first. We will not be liable for any Subscription Billing Payment that is deducted from your Account before you have notified the Merchant of the cancellation. You will not be able to cancel a Payment that has already been made to a Merchant.
6.6.3 It is your responsibility to ensure that your Account has sufficient funds to make each of the Payments you have agreed to make using Subscription Billing. We shall not be liable for any fees, charges you may incur as a result of there being insufficient funds in your Account to meet your obligations under a Subscription Billing arrangement. If your Account goes into a negative balance, the terms set out in section 10.3 shall be applicable.
6.6.5 We will refund any past Subscription Billing Payment(s) initiated by or through the Merchant provided that: (a) the original authorisation given to us or the Merchant did not specify the exact amount of the Payment and (b) the amount of the Payment exceeded the amount that you could reasonably have expected taking into account your previous spending pattern and the circumstances of the case. You must request such a refund within eight (8) weeks from the date the funds were debited from your Account. You agree to provide us with such information as is reasonably necessary to ascertain whether the conditions for a refund described in this section 6.6.5 are satisfied. Within ten (10) Business Days of receiving a request for a refund or, where applicable, of receiving any further information we requested from you, we will either refund the full amount of the payment or provide you with justification for refusing to refund the payment indicating that you have a right to refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service if you do not accept the justification provided.
6.7 Closing your Account and redeeming your funds
6.7.1 If you wish to close your Account, you may do so by notifying us in writing. Subject to subsection 6.7.3 below, you may redeem at par all of the balance of electronic money in your Account (excluding amounts that have not cleared your financial institution) by selecting one of the withdrawal options available to you in your country of residence as set out in the “Money Out” page of the Member Site, or by using your Card at any ATM.
6.7.2 We will process the Withdrawal request provided all identity and security validation and verification checks are successfully completed.
6.7.3 Depending on the method of Withdrawal you choose, a Fee may be applicable which will be deducted from the balance in your Account prior to Withdrawal.
6.8 We may refuse to execute any Transaction in the following circumstances:
6.8.1 we reasonably believe that you did not give us the instruction;
6.8.2 we reasonably suspect fraudulent activity;
6.8.3 your instructions are unclear, incomplete or not in the required form;
6.8.5 we need to do so in order to comply with the Mastercard rules; or
6.8.6 where we are otherwise required to do so by law or requirement of any applicable regulatory body.
We may notify you of such refusal, our reasons for doing so and, where applicable, how to rectify the error that led to the refusal, unless such notification - or any part of it - is prohibited by any law or regulation.
6.9 Merchants may not be able to authorise a Payment if they cannot obtain online authorisation from us (for example, if they are unable to access the internet).
6.10 You are fully responsible for the instructions you give to us and as a result we may not be able to detect errors in your Transaction instructions. It is important that you ensure all the details entered in respect of any Transaction are accurate. Any Transaction will be deemed to have been correctly executed where it has been executed in accordance with your instructions. However, we may in some circumstances, be able to assist you in recovering the funds involved and will apply the relevant Fee for doing so, per the Fee Table. We are unable to recover funds incorrectly sent to another Member, unless you have a police crime reference number or the consent of the other person involved.
6.11 Transactions are final and are not reversible save in the following circumstances and at our sole discretion:
6.11.1 where we confirm there has been a Merchant error;
6.11.2 where there is illegal activity involving your Account; or
6.12 You acknowledge that certain of our Transaction options will require different types and levels of identity and security validation and verification checks, including use of third party validation and verification systems, and you agree to us applying our reasonable discretion in using and sharing relevant personal data to conduct such identity and security validation and verification checks if you choose such options.
6.13 You also acknowledge that for security purposes, certain of our Transaction options impose minimum and maximum limits on the amounts that may be transferred. We reserve the right to impose limits on the amount of any Transaction and the frequency you may use a particular Transaction option. Further information is available on the Website. These limits are subject to change from time to time without notice.

6.14.1 an actual or attempted act by you which is deemed by us to be collusion, abuse of bonuses or other promotions in respect of the NETELLER Service;

6.14.3 the carrying out of false and/or artificial activity or Transactions (commonly known as “churning”).
6.15 You must only use your Account for personal purposes and not as a means to trade or run a business unless, in certain circumstances as determined by us, we give our prior written consent for you to do so.
6.A. THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS
6.A.1 A Third Party Provider is a service provider that is permitted by law to make payments from your account on your behalf and to provide account information services to you, provided they are acting in accordance with your instructions and the relevant regulatory requirements. You can check whether the provider is authorised in the information they give to you about the services they will provide.
6.A.2. We will treat any instruction from a Third Party Provider as if it were from you and the terms of this Agreement will still apply. If you consent to a Third Party Provider having access to information concerning your account, we will assume that you consent to access being granted as frequently as the Third Party Provider requests it.
6.A.3. If you give your security details to a third party that is not a Third Party Provider, we will have to assume it is you that is authorising us to give access to your account, we will treat payments instructed by that third party as authorised by you and will not be responsible for any losses you suffer as a result of misuse or disclosure of information about your account by that third party.
6.A.4 We may refuse to allow a Third Party Provider to access your Account if we are concerned about unauthorised or fraudulent access by that Third Party Provider. Before we do this we will tell you and explain our reasons for doing so, unless it is not reasonably practicable, in which case we will tell you immediately afterwards. In either case, we will tell you using any of the contact details we hold for you. We won’t tell you our reasons where doing so will undermine our reasonable security measures or otherwise be unlawful. If you want to cancel the consent you have given to a Third Party Provider to access your account you should contact them directly.
6.A.5 If you think a payment may have been made incorrectly or is unauthorised, you must tell us as soon as possible even where you use a Third Party Provider. If you ask a Third Party Provider to request a payment and they do not do this, we will not be responsible for your payment not being made. Once a Third Party Provider has initiated a payment, you cannot normally cancel it.
7. CARD EXPIRY, LOSS AND DAMAGE
7.2 Upon expiry of your Card, we will only automatically renew Cards that have been used within the 12 months prior to expiry. A charge will not be applied if your Card is automatically renewed.
7.3 If you so request, we will replace a Card which has been lost, stolen or damaged. A Fee will be applicable for replacing a Card that has been lost, stolen or damaged.
7.4 If you find your Card after you have reported it lost, stolen or misused, you must destroy it and inform us immediately.
8.1 We will charge you the Fees set out on our Website for each Transaction. You authorise us to debit from your Account any applicable Fees at the time of a Transaction. We may also charge you certain administration Fees, including, but not limited to, in relation to ongoing management of inactive accounts, debt collection and reprocessing charges in case of insufficient funds. All Fees will be charged in the currency of your Account and you agree that we may debit by way of set-off from your Account any Fees, charges or other amounts owing to us and payable by you in connection with the NETELLER Service. All Card Fees will be charged in the currency of your Account, regardless of the currency of the Card or the Transaction.

8.3 Please be aware that some ATM providers charge additional fees for the use of their ATMs. It is your responsibility to check before proceeding with your Transaction.
9. CURRENCY EXCHANGE
9.1 When you register your Account, you have the option of choosing from a list of currencies, which will be the currency in which your Account will be denominated.
9.2 If you use your Card to make a Transaction in a currency other than the currency of your Account (for example because your Card or your Account is denominated in a currency that is different from the currency charged by the retailer or you use your Card abroad to make a payment in a foreign currency or withdraw cash), then such a Transaction will be converted to the currency of your Account on the day we receive final settlement for the Transaction (typically 72 hours after you make the Transaction). You will receive an estimate of the converted amount at the time you make the Transaction, but this may be less, or more, than the final amount deducted from your Account due to exchange rate fluctuations. We will use Mastercard authorised rates applicable for such a Transaction. A foreign exchange fee will also apply (for further details on the applicable foreign exchange fee and the mark-up over the latest available foreign exchange reference rates issued by the European Central Bank (ECB) see the Fees section on our Website). You will be notified via automatic electronic notification (such as email or push notifications via the NETELLER app) with transaction details every time you use your Card to make a payment. You have the option to unsubscribe from receiving such notifications.
9.3 If you apply for a Card in a currency that is different to the currency of your Account, all Transactions you make from your Account using your Card will incur a foreign exchange fee. Any Transaction you make in a currency which is different to both the currency of your Card and your Account, will incur an additional foreign exchange fee (you will be charged an exchange fee for the currency conversion from the Transaction currency into the currency of your Card and a further fee for the currency conversion into the currency of your Account). We recommend that you choose the same currency for your Card as the currency of your Account.
9.4 Transactions not involving your Card may also be subject to currency conversions. For every such currency conversion, we will apply our NETELLER exchange rate which applies at the time we carry out the transaction between the two currencies involved, to which we add a foreign exchange fee. The NETELLER exchange rate is a reference exchange rate set by us and changes continuously throughout each day. You can find out details of our current reference exchange rates here. When we set and change the NETELLER exchange rate we take account of the buy and sell exchange rates in the market, and changes to those rates, which we receive from a variety of independent sources. Our foreign exchange fee is displayed in the "Fees" section of the Website. The foreign exchange fee is payable in addition to the transaction fee.
10. CHARGEBACKS, NEGATIVE BALANCES AND REFUNDS
10.2 Without limiting our rights or remedies, if you do charge back, cancel, reverse or de-authorise a payment in such circumstances, you are responsible for refunding the payment to us. We may, at our discretion, recover the amount by reducing your Account balance, re-charging your credit card or bank account for the amount or otherwise collecting such amount from you.
10.4 We reserve the right, at any time, to send you reminders or to take other debt collection measures including but not limited to mandating a debt collection agency or solicitors or to pursue the claim in court. We reserve the right to charge you the expenses we reasonably incur in connection with any such debt collection or enforcement efforts. This provision shall survive termination of the relationship between you and us.
10.5 If you receive a refund for purchases made with your Card, the refund will be paid to your Account. For legal reasons, you are not entitled to receive refunds in cash for Transactions made using your Card. Refunds may take up to 30 days to process.
10.6 Once you have used the NETELLER Service to make a purchase, we are unable to stop that Transaction. However, where you have used your Card to buy goods or services you may have a claim against the Merchant if the goods or services are unsatisfactory, not supplied, supplied only in part or do not match the supplier’s description. You must notify us of any dispute within 60 days of the purchase and the chargeback will only be applied to your account if successfully secured from the merchant through Mastercard. Mastercard and not us will determine who will win the chargeback. If you wrongly make a chargeback claim, we will be entitled to charge you any fees we reasonably incur in pursuing the chargeback claim and we will be entitled to debit your Account with the amount of any such fees.
11. REWARD OR PROMOTIONAL PROGRAMS
From time to time, we may offer reward programs or other promotional programs. Such programs will be subject to the program rules. We reserve the right to cancel or amend the terms of any such reward or promotional program at our discretion.
12. ACCOUNT RESTRICTIONS
12.1.1 using the NETELLER Service to obtain a cash advance (or assisting others in such activity);

13.1 It is your responsibility to keep your Card safe; your Card is personal to you and you must not give it to anyone else to use. You must take all reasonable precautions to keep your Account ID Information confidential and secure. This includes ensuring the ongoing security of your Account ID Information and your personal computer device for accessing the Internet. You are required to change your password regularly and to use up to date virus, malware and spyware scanning software and firewall protection to reduce the risk of a security breach. Although you must not, generally, give your security details to anyone else, you may give them to an authorised Third Party Provider if it is necessary to allow them to access your account information or initiate a payment from your account with your permission.
13.2 You will receive a PIN for your physical Card and you must keep your PIN safe. This means that when you receive your PIN you must memorise it and destroy the letter containing details of the PIN. You must keep your PIN secret at all times. You must not disclose your PIN to anyone including friends, family or any Merchant. You must not write down your PIN anywhere. You must not use your PIN if someone else can see you typing it in. You must comply with the security procedures we tell you about from time to time.
13.3 If you suspect that someone else knows your Account ID Information, or either it or your Card has been lost, stolen, misappropriated, used without authorisation or otherwise compromised you are advised to change your password. You must contact the Customer Contact Centre without undue delay on becoming aware of any loss, theft, misappropriation or unauthorised use of your Card or Account ID Information. Any undue delay in notifying us may not only affect the security of your Account but may result in you being liable for any losses as a result where your failure to notify us is intentional or grossly negligent. If you suspect that your Account was accessed by someone else, you should also contact the police and report the incident. . If you forget your PIN you can find the details in your Account. It is important you keep your Account details safe and secure as it provides access to your virtual cards and physical Card PINs.
13.4 We may suspend your Card and / or your Account or otherwise restrict its functionality on reasonable grounds relating to the security of the Card or the Account or any of their security features or if we reasonably suspect that an unauthorised or fraudulent use of your Card or Account has occurred or that any of its security features have been compromised. In addition, we may suspend your Card and/or your Account or otherwise restrict its functionality where we reasonably suspect that another NETELLER Account or Skrill Account provided by us or one of our group companies is held by you and has been used for any fraudulent activity, money laundering, terrorism financing or other criminal activity. We will notify you of any suspension or restriction and of the reasons for such suspension or restriction in advance or, where we are unable to do so, immediately after the suspension or restriction has been imposed, unless notifying you would be unlawful or compromise our reasonable security interests.
