For those who like to use online payment methods, popular platform Neteller is an obvious choice. A lot of users are happy to use it for many forms of shopping, but it’s a primary choice for a lot of online gamers. This online platform has become a major part of the online industry, particularly for entertainment platforms such as online casinos and the like. However, as of April 10th, 2019, Neteller will be adjusting just how users actually sign-up to their platform.
Previously, users would sign up to the popular platform using a standard shot of themselves (a ‘selfie’) whilst holding a piece of corresponding identification. Now, though, just as Skrill have, Neteller have decided to follow the same change in verification. Now, users will need to take a photo of themselves in a selfie whilst holding a dated piece of paper with the word ‘Neteller’ written on it.
This is a bit of an annoyance, as it can mean taking a much more specific photo than before. Also, you will need to have some snaps of the ID that you need to showcase, anyway. So, make sure you get a high-quality photo of each, and then you can easily get signed-up with Neteller.
It’s going to help with approving accounts in the future, though, so any new Neteller accounts should benefit from the process. It will help you to get a much faster response and easier yes/no verification on the account. With a stricter setting on the photo needed, it should become simpler to receive the results that you need.
Will I have to reverify my Neteller account in 2019?
No, this is only for new accounts that sign up with Neteller. You do not have to renew your old verification process. If you are already an agreed member for the platform, then you do not have to sign-up once again. Nor will you have to send in the new selfie image. If you were to create a new account, though, you would have to follow the new process.
The new Neteller verification process in 2019
- When you log in to your Neteller account for the first time, you’ll need to visit the Settings
- Now, click on the Verification page within Settings.
- When you do this, click Upload Photos. When you do that, you’ll have to upload two photos.
- One, you have to upload a photo of your ID, such as your passport or ID card.
- You also need to upload the new selfie, holding the dated piece of paper saying ‘Neteller’.
- Then, you need to verify the address using the geo-locator tool provided.
- You could also upload a statement proving your address, such as a bank statement.
- Now, hit Continue and your application will be processed and finalized.
Verification often takes less than 48 hours, though the majority will receive a response within 24 hours. Either way, this new solution should help to improve efficiency and reliability when it comes to getting your Neteller account opened in future.
With a lot of issues in the past for a lot of new accounts, this should hopefully speed up and improve the sign-up process. For any Neteller users who were frustrated in the past, you’ll be happy to know that any future accounts should be a smoother, simpler process. If you do run into any issues, then make sure that you get in touch with their support team.
