can't see it anywhere on the site, do you get a pysical plastic card or do you just use a card number generated on the website.

I see transfers from Laser are free which is handy.

If its easier to apply/activate than Neteller then this may just be better than Entropay.

sounds like a good deal, will check it out.

Would this work when paying on Ryanair? Think it's no charge when paying with Prepaid Mastercard

There is no info on the site anywhere, but if you log into your account (with residence in Ireland or the UK) you will get an offer to apply for it.

You need to upload a scan of your id and might also be asked to provide proof of address.

You get a phyical card issued by Newcastle Building Society which most likley will mean (based on other experience) that it's coded as "prepaid" and allows you to avoid the Ryanair Charge.

Moneybookers are cheaper than rubycard, payzone etc. as you can load it for free from your laser card or bank account (to a bank account in Ireland) and from my experience the customer service (while slow) is good.

sounds like too much effort, when you can just walk into the Dundrum or Blanch centres and get one

The card costs 10 Euro a year but they dont tell you this until after you have uploaded your ID so I sent them a email to cancel it I allready have the Neteller card for free so not much point in paying 10 Euro for something I might never use.Their transaction fees seem to be less than Neteller so if you use them a lot you might make up the 10 Euro a year fees.

It states it very clearly on the information page under 'fees'.
I haven't signed up and I've read about it.

For one, you can top it up without loading fees (laser, bank transfer).
