Years later, after moving hundreds of thousands of dollars around, I wish I knew Tobi and his partners from E-Wallet Optimizer at the time I created the account. It would have had huge benefits with the VIP upgrade and lower fees than Neteller is standardly offering. The same applies for Skrill and Ecopayz accounts, of course. Be smart how you move money around and if you’re uncertain about what to do the guys from eWO are very happy to help you! Please contact me and we’ll make it work together.

Visually it looks like this:
