About Optimal Payments (PaySafe) and its payment services

Optimal, expected to rebrand to PaySafe in October 2015, is the company behind the Neteller, Skrill and prepaid product, PaySafe Card. Through its acquisitions, the company is considered among the largest e-wallet providers available to customers in hundreds of countries.

Its Neteller service launched in 1999 and has grown to become a popular e-wallet among online shoppers and gamblers alike. In fact, there are over 600 online casinos that support this payment method. Withdrawals from casino operators are often processed instantly once approved and the Net+ Card featuring the MasterCard logo makes accessing you cash simple and convenient.

If you recall the days of Moneybookers, which launched in 2002, you may or may not know that the company rebranded to Skrill a few years back. The brand was acquired by Optimal Payments in 2015 and offers similar fee based services as Neteller and also offers a MasterCard product.

Although the use of these services often comes with a fee, several of the basic everyday transactions are free. PaySafe Card is yet another Optimal Payments service based on stored value cards, also known as prepaid solutions.

For a listing of operators that support these as well as other payment methods, see our Banking page.

  • This company is a real giant now owning the two of the most popular eWallets nowadays, I don't use Netteler because of the higher fees in comparison to other eWallets but Skrill really don't have a real alternative for all casino, poker and sports betting players amongst the other eWallets. So the future ahead of the company is really bright and the rebrand will just help them to become even more popular I think.
  • Interesting times for Neteller that is for sure
  • Well, as was said - for us players this does not mean anything. But for company it seems important. What interesting for me it is what happens with skrill when neteller will buy it. Will they change something? Probably will be some interesting actions and probably even some promotions for us, players. Anyway, i'll look forward on this events with this giant payment options.
  • The name changing nothing important for us, but this is doing after skrill buy and this is a part of new look of optimal payments plc. The Lion share-player, Neteller and skrill, now are the same brand , so You could expect lil bit changes in both, however, One big company could bring some noise for the custumers nad play monopoly games..Hope, they not gonan increase FX rates or service fees. Great company, which is offering the best prepaid-cards and instant electronic money transfers!
  • It seems to be an epidemic. Everywhere you turn, somebody is changing their name. What is the matter. You don't think mom an dad did you right. Of course, when you get together with somebody else, there is probably gonna be a name change. Are you going to take their name? Are they gonna take your name. Another option, maybe combine the two names and if all else fails, you can come up with something entirely fresh and new. Good luck to Paysafe Group pic...
