I live in Zimbabwe, Can I open an Account with Neteller? Copy
Let me guess: You've probably gone into Google and searched for "Neteller Zimbabwe" in the hope of an accurate response to the question: "Is Neteller [the popular eWallet] available to local residents?" Bad news: Unfortunately, Neteller does not open Accounts to residents in Zimbabwe. However, you still need to make cheap transfers via a multicurrency [USD, EUR, GBP among many others] account, you need to find an eWallet that is indeed available to clients in the country.
We have checked out the possible options that local clients have, and we believe that you should try Transferwise (www.transferwise.com), which as a multicurrency eWallet that has the advantage of providing actual Bank Accounts in the local jurisdiction of the currency [i.e., it provides you with an account in the US for USD, an account in Belgium for Euro, an account in the UK for GBP, and so on]. If you need to transfer or ship on other African countries, Transferwise also allows you to maintain balances in Rands, Kwacha, Pula, Franc CFA, Kenyan and Tanzanian Shillings, among other currencies from the region. If you need a proper money management solution in Africa, definitely Transferwise is worth checking.
I don't want to open an account with Neteller! I just want to know what it is
Ok, in that case, Neteller is an electronic wallet offering payment, shopping and money transfer services. An Online Account with Neteller works like a bank account [although it's not one] allowing you to: (a) receive money, (b) transfer money in a fast and simple way, and (c) pay for products and services online. These types of accounts are called e-wallets. For more info, check out our Neteller's Review.
