How NETELLER developed
In the UK, Netbanx Ltd is created, specializing in the processing of credit card payments. In the future, this company will be issuing plastic cards for NETELLER customers.
NETELLER PLC was founded to present a payment solution in Great Britain.
Optimal Payments moves to the offshore area on the Isle of Man. The company already conducts about 80% of the world's calculations in online gambling. 95% of the income is brought by transfers between deposits of gambling sites, for the most part, US citizens. The payment system takes the first place for all poker rooms and online casinos.
Being a joint-stock company, it conducts an IPO and enters the London Stock Exchange (with the designation "OPAY"). By that time, its capitalization equals $ 70 million.
NETELLER purchases Netbanx for £12.36 million. By that time, Netbanx independently handled credit card payments totaling £10 million. The company cooperated with the largest banks in the UK, as well as with MasterCard and Visa. NETELLER purchased it in order to provide plastic cards to its customers.
Legislative prohibition of online gambling is passed in USA. 250 thousand of NETELLER accounts are seized by the authorities. The clients of those accounts could get back their money only on July of 2007. The company couldn’t work with clients from the USA, and it was reflected in its earnings for several years (it fell from $239 million in 2006 to $ 61 million in 2010). It was difficult times for Optimal Payments.
Neovia starts accepting online payments on the territory of Russia and Ukraine. The company will arrive in Belarus in 2014.
Neovia acquires Optimal Payments, a company dedicated to supporting solutions for payment systems in North America and Europe. At that time, it independently serviced payments totaling $2.5 billion a year. The total amount of the transaction is $50 million.
A month later, the company changes its name to Optimal Payments PLC.
Optimal Payments is buying California-based Meritus Payments Solutions and American Global Merchant Advisors for $263 million.
Due to the development of these companies, it was possible to significantly improve the speed and quality of the payment system.
Optimal Payments acquires a competitive payment service Skrill for €1.1 billion and changes its name to Paysafe Group. (The text of the Skrill's preliminary public agreement on Optimal Payments PLC was published on the London Stock Exchange on March 23, 2015).
The two largest services Skrill and NETELLER combine their resources.
Currently NETELLER has representative offices in Canada, Great Britain, Hong Kong and Costa Rica. Several companies are working on the service at once. The service is licensed by the British FCA, which controls compliance with European economic security standards.
The company key figure is Joel Leonoff, president and CEO of the parent company Paysafe Group. He is engaged in management and handles all processes in the company, including major transactions.
In 2016 Paysafe Group owning all the companies that provide the NETELLER work, achieved revenue of $1 billion, that is 63% more than last year. $311 million of this revenue was brought exactly by the company's payment systems. At the same time, operating profit was $194.4 million, according to the company's annual report.
Leonoff said that it was an excellent year, and the company has great plans for the future:

and a photo (selfie) with the document.

What you should consider while working with NETELLER?
NETELLER and Skrill are a payments system that divides the first place in the world of online gambling. It may be more convenient to make Internet purchases with ordinary bank cards or whatever you prefer, however, NETELLER is indispensable for operations with forex brokers, bookmakers, and poker rooms.
To confidently use NETELLER you should know about several of its shortcomings:
First, there is no withdrawal to the bank card, only to the bank account.
Second, if you withdraw to bank account in USD, you will have to pay double conversion as long as the processing of bank withdrawals are held in EUR.
New NETELLER users who live outside the SEPA zone can not order either a NET+ card or a virtual NET+ Virtual Prepaid MasterCard. However, existing users (who have already ordered a card at least once) can re-order it again after the expiration date.
You will be granted the highest transfer deposits and withdrawals limits of funds in just one business day. Please, find out more about our VipDeposits + NETELLER program, register or fill out the application form (if you already have a NETELLER account) and get all the advantages of working with VipDeposits.
