Hi I'm just wondering which is your preferred E-Wallet and why? And what benefits does one have over another?
Skrill, Paypal or Neteller?

I think that Neteller is by far the best for online gaming. is cheaper than skrill, while I think that paypal is more suitable for online purchases
Skrill is MUCH CHEAPER than Neteller... (for depositing and withdrawals) for example: withdrawal fees:

Deposit with Credit Card Visa : Neteller 1,75% - Skrill : 1,90%
Withdrawal with bankwire : Neteller 7,50 eur - Skrill : 2,95 eur (ops... here you are right Sommi )
For me deposit with Visa costs 1,90% with Neteller.
You probably have bronze or silver VIP.
Anyway, I don't use cards to make a deposits if I can do it for free with bank account.
Anyways, some copy-paste as I can't post any links.
The main important fees like depositing and withdrawal fees, especially for non-VIPs, are much lower at Skrill (Moneybookers) compared to NETELLER.
There are two exceptions for which NETELLER provides lower fees than Skrill does: The currency exchange fees (see below) are much lower in average and peer to peer transfers are free of charge for NETELLER customers while Skrill customers pay 1% of the transferred amount that is capped at 10 EUR for non-VIPs and at 1 EUR for VIPs.
Promotions & Cashback for smaller turnover:
Skrill ran several cashback promotions up to 1.5% cashback for outgoing transfers until 2013, but stopped doing so in 2014. Skrill still offers the Skrill Loyalty Club for their VIP customers earning them 0.2% cashback, but the list of excluded merchants taking part in the promo has been extended heavily in 2013.
MasterCard for NON-VIPs:
The default NETELLER MasterCard limit is much higher than the one of Skrill MasterCard for NON-VIPs. In case customers use their maximum withdrawal limit every time at the ATM, the fee for cash withdrawals at the ATM is also bit lower with NETELLER MasterCard than with Skrill MasterCard (4 EUR vs 5.40 EUR per 750 EUR cash withdrawal). Please note that this difference only applies for NON-VIPs. For VIPs limits and fees are almost the same.
Currency exchange fees:
Since Skrill raised their currency exchange fees in late 2013, NETELLER is now the clear winner in this part of the comparison (1.25-2.95% FX fees depending on customers VIP status).
Skrill now differs currency exchanges in the following three categories depending on the customers VIP status. For example for non-VIPs the currency exchange fees are:
1) Exchanging money from and to USD, GBP, EUR, CAD or PLN: FX fee of 2.99% does apply.
2) From USD, GBP, EUR, CAD or PLN to any other currency: FX fee of 3.99% does apply.
3) From and to any other currency: FX fee of 4.99% does apply.
Cashback for high turnover:
For those planning to use their eWallet heavily and are interested in earning decent cashback every month, we suggest using NETELLER where our clients earn a monthly extra cashback of up to 1.2% on all qualifying transfers.
I still prefer Skrill. And I find PayPal pretty useless (for gamblers )
- of course skrill is best for me! because i have unlimited transfers -
Per transaction ? NO LIMIT
Cumulative/Overall ? NO LIMIT
Withdrawal ? NO LIMIT
but most of all ewallets have limits.
i pay only fees for credit card (when i upload money - this aply for every visa) and also when i withdraw money from skrill card - 1.80.
i use neteller too (only once per few months when i have no chance use skrill (for example rtg casinos) and i really dont like that even for 100 euro i have to pay 7.50!

Thanks for the replies people. I was mostly wondering because when you use Paypal to store funds they take a chunk of your money. Thanks really helpful stuff.
Oooh, did not know this Dom, thanks
As for e wallet I only use Skrill. So good I have not even bothered to try anything else plus if a Casino does not use Skrill as payment method, I'm not touching it.
- I had skrill in the past until sombody sent to a friend of mine money in his account and because he didn't had a card he send it to me to take some money with mine.They closed my account his account and the first person account.The ugly thing was that the reopened the first sender account and gived him the money and my account and my friends were closed permanently even if the first one talked to them and told them that it was no money londering.
So now I only use neteller.Where I have a problem because I can't deposit money with my card in it(never worked I think that I will change the bank soon),I can only put money with paysafecard wich is now 9% from what I can remember and I lose a lott when I do that.
- Yes you are wright and not.I tried that once and my neteller has the balance in euros and the ukash voucher is in RON and when I tried to put the money I didn't managed because of the courency.I tried to convert on the ukash site my voucher from RON to EUROS but with no chances.With paysafe card I don't have the same problems even if the voucher is in the same curency.I gived the voucher to a friend that had his neteller in RON and he managed to make the deposit.
- I have used both Neteller and Moneybookers (now Skrill) over the years and, while they operate in similar ways, the key differences in my view are customer service and security. If anything ever goes wrong with your ewallet account, chances are you'll find it much easier and quicker to contact Neteller and get your issue resolved. I currently don't use Skrill but have read many horror stories online of people whose accounts were hacked having trouble getting through to customer support, though I think the situation has improved a bit lately. Still, just enter 'Moneybookers hacked' and 'Neteller hacked' into Google and compare the number of results, especially considering the service with more problems became popular after the other one had been the leader for years.
P.S. Paypal doesn't really figure into this discussion as most online gambling sites don't offer it as a payment method and only players from a few countries can use it.
