Hello To open a account on neteller you need to give your bank account? Iwant to open a account there just to move money from different poker rooms not to take it to my bank account For example take money from party poker and with that make a deposit somewhere else Thanks for the help
Its gonna be real hard to make that happen, perhaps you are able to add funds using methods like paysafe cards, i know it works for paypal for example. Otherwise you could consider switching to another banking site.

I had a skrill account and to open it i had to give them ID with picture and all the information about my bank account. Then after the account was open then i could make cash out from a site and deposit to another one without going throught my bank and also keep some cash in my skrill account. I dont know about neteller bu i suppose you could do the same.

both are ewallet cards process and cash outs are definitely same,altough promotion and shopping items has its own previleges in a one time creditcard or debit card personal identity,all are used by cc or debit without it u cant make application for ewallet.for me i refer skrill because its a lot of option rewards ,while on netteller a common card that most people used for transfering site from sitepoker and casinos....
Be aware the Netteller is expensive (as is skrill) on party poker (3% withdrawal fee). Also any currency conversion fees may be added to that (another 3 - 5%). So make sure your ewallet and poker accounts all use the same currency.
I recently got the GoPlay credit card, which is free for both withdrawal as well as deposit. There is however a one time fee of $11.50 (if I remember correctly), and a dormancy fee if you don't use it for 2 months (kinda sucks, since it's very likely I'll forget). They did however not charge me the $11.50, so I got it for free it seems.
For Canadians Instadebit seems to be a good option.
Edit: So far I'm pleased with the goplay card, except that they are offline for over a week now (Party has some technical problems at the moment).

Having an e-wallet without the option to cash out ever is not the best way to use them in my opinion. But if you only want to use the cards they are offering then I guess you won't have to give them your real bank account. The problem you will face soon, that depositing with an e-wallet anywhere will makes you able to withdraw your money into only your e-wallet again. And by the time you do this, if you didn't give your valid bank acc or credit card info to them you will hardly able to use that money since you cannot cashout without these. Also they will require pictures of your ID and such.

well i have neteller for quite sometime now all i had to do is upload an ID and then you can transfer all the money you want but pokersites won't let you withdraw to your neteller account unless you made your first-deposit using neteller so you have to find a way to get some money in neteller
