      I'm about to move my BR from Pacific to FullTilt. Because of the comission and some other reasons I would like to avoid transferring money to my rl bank account. What is the best option to do the transfer... like using Paypal or something similar. An virtual bank account where I can transfer money on.

      If there is already a thread concerning this matter feel free to point me there. :)

      I use Neteller, but recently started using Entropay. Entropay is like a virtual visa card, you just load it with cash and you can use it to deposit like a regular visa.

      You can also ask someone with a FT account who you trust to transfer the money to you, and transfer the money to him on another site (e.g. Pacific) where you have money. If necessary in steps of x% per transfer.

      Entropay sounds interesting......when you withdraw from a site, does it work the same as putting the money back on your visa (ie. withdraw using your 'virtual card' number?)

      what sort of fees are attached to these sites (netteller, moneybooker). I'm looking to move some money to a new site, but never had to withdraw or deposit before.

      I have never used netteller, but for moneybookers there is no fee when moving money around between pokersites. Only time there is a fee is when you are withdrawing to a real bank account etc. But you can move money from site a->moneybookers->site b for no charge.

      I use neteller, and there is no fee for transfers. The catch is, before you can withdraw from any site to neteller, you have to have made a deposit from there first. I think it is the same for all withdrawal options from all poker sites though.

      So you have to open a neteller, and probably moneybooker, account with a deposit from your own funds, then make a small deposit to the site you first want to withdraw from. After that it is easy.

      That's how moneybookers work his right.first a deposit and then u can cassh out,but its worth imo.And the fee for withdrawing to a bank account is 1.75euros,

      So if I get this right - there is no way to use these services unless I deposit my own money first?

      Usually the poker rooms will require this for ALL withdrawal options (expect maybe cheque). It means that if your account gets hacked it's not so easy for someone to withdraw all your money.

      Every site will be different. I know I withdrew from Titan with a simple minimum deposit and no wagering.
