ecoPayz Fees, Limits, Charges and Rates. The Definitive Guide 2021.
As with all digital wallets, there is a multitude of different fees for various types of transactions and actions.
It can sometimes be somewhat difficult to find the correct information and the correct fee for your personal account and account status.
We’ve put this updated 2021 ecoPayz fee guide together to help you understand the types of fees that are applicable and to try to help you in reducing your ecoPayz fees.
Although the fees at ecoPayz are less dependent on your VIP status than other ewallets such as Skrill and Neteller, your account level at ecoPayz is still an important factor as you will see in this guide.
Therefore, we advise all clients and partners to try to achieve at least Gold to maximise their limits, reduce their fees and access benefits such as free P2P transfers.
ecoPayz Deposit Fees
There is a wide variety of deposit methods available at ecoPayz.
The fees for depositing at ecoPayz are generally similar across all ecoPayz account levels.
The notable exception is that ecoPayz customers who have “VIP” level will pay reduced fees (50% decrease) for bank transfer deposits.
One particular point to note regarding ecoPayz deposit fees is that, as you can see on the comparison table below, there is a “fee range” on many of the listed fees.
For example, bank deposits are listed as 0.00-10.00%.
The reason for this is because the exact fee depends on your country and the deposit options available to you in your region.
Another point to note is that credit card deposits are charged between 1.60-6.00% but there is also an additional charge of €0.25, or currency equivalent.
|Bank wire deposit||0.00-10.00%||0.00-10.00%||0.00-10.00%||0.00-10.00%||0.00-10.00%|
|Credit card deposit||1.69-6.00% + €0.25||1.69-6.00% + €0.25||1.69-6.00% + €0.25||1.69-6.00% + €0.25||1.69-6.00% + €0.25|
|codePayz deposit||€0.00 - €3.50||€0.00 - €3.50||€0.00 - €3.50||€0.00 - €3.50||€0.00 - €3.50|
The best way to check your exact deposit fees is by logging in to ecoPayz and trying to make a deposit with your chosen method.
On the deposit page you will see the exact fee payable.
ecoPayz Deposit Limits
Your VIP account level at ecoPayz is important for determining your account limits.
Whilst there are some reductions in fees as you progress through the account levels, the increases in account limits are more noticeable.
However, the single most important thing is just to verify your ecoPayz account as the functionality available for unverified accounts is very limited.
Please refer to the table below to compare ecoPayz deposit limits, according to your account level.

ecoPayz Withdrawal Fees
There are 3 usual methods for withdrawing your funds from ecoPayz.
- Bank transfer

The fees are slightly reduced for “VIP” account level bank withdrawals as instead of paying €5.00-€10.00 fee, you will pay €2.90-€7.00.
For zestPay, the fee is the same regardless of account level with the exception of Classic.
Classic (unverified) accounts unfortunately cannot make any withdrawals.

ecoPayz Withdrawal Limits
As with deposit limits, the ecoPayz withdrawal limits are set according to maximum single transaction, max daily, weekly and monthly limits.
The highest limits are for bank transfer pay-outs with large amounts up to €1m on a weekly basis.
Since zestPay is essentially a bank transfer withdrawal, the limits are the same as a regular bank transfer.
For most ecoPayz customers, you shouldn’t have any issues withdrawing the amount you require.
The limits on transferring to another ecoPayz account depend on your account level with a 500% increase on your limits from Silver to “VIP”.
|Bank withdrawal/zestPay (single transaction)||-||€500,000.00||€500,000.00||€500,000.00||€500,000.00|
|Bank withdrawal/zestPay (daily)||-||€500,00.00||€500,00.00||€500,00.00||€500,00.00|

ecoPayz MasterCard Fees
Like Skrill and Neteller, ecoPayz offer a prepaid MasterCard for your convenience.
In the past it was possible to obtain an ecoPayz Virtual Card (ecoCard) but ecoPayz discontinued the virtual card in 2020 to focus solely on the physical version MasterCard.
The prepaid MasterCard is available in the EEA (European Economic Area) and the UK only.
You must be at least Silver VIP to order your prepaid card.
Your card fees and limits will depend on your account level with increases in limits as you progress from Silver to Gold.
All cards for Silver upwards are free to apply but all account levels do incur a £10/£30 GBP delivery fee (or currency equivalent) depending on where you are located.
One improvement ecoPayz could make to their MasterCard offering is to reduce the FX fees for higher account level holders as the currency exchange fee for all levels is a flat 2.99%.
Whilst this FX rate is cheaper than Skrill and Neteller lower VIP levels, it is more expensive than Skrill & Neteller higher VIP levels.
The cash withdrawal limits per day increase from €750-€1,500 as you move from Silver to Gold.
|MasterCard application||Not available||Free||Free||Free||Free|
|MasterCard deliver (UK)||-||£10 GBP||£10 GBP||£10 GBP||£10 GBP|
|MasterCard deliver (EEA)||-||£30 GBP *||£30 GBP *||£30 GBP *||£30 GBP *|
|Cash withdrawal limit||-||€750/per day||€1,500/per day||€1,500/per day||€1,500/per day|
|ATM withdrawal fee||-||2.00%, min €1.50||2.00%, min €1.50||2.00%, min €1.50||2.00%, min €1.50|
|POS limit||-||€5,500/per day||€11,000/per day||€11,000/per day||€11,000/per day|
|Card life||-||2 Years||2 Years||2 Years||2 Years|
* The fees are set in GBP due to constant exchange rates fluctuations. The converted rate will be displayed at the time of the application and will also be shown on your eco statement.
The MasterCard is available in the UK and most of the EU/EEA member states.
Fees charged will be currency equivalent of the payment card currency.
ecoPayz to ecoPayz Transfer Fee (P2P)
The fee schedule for making transfers from one ecoPayz account to another is very simple and straightforward.
- Classic account level holders cannot make P2P transfers (to move from Classic to Silver you simply need to verify your account)
- Silver account holders pay a fee of 1.5%, min €0.50 to make P2P transfers
- Gold account holders and above can make free P2P transfers
You can make free P2P transfers to other ecoPayz account holders with our instant ecoPayz Gold upgrade. Submit your ecoPayz details on our form to get your instant lifetime Gold VIP status.

|Send P2P send money fee||Not available||1.50%, min €0.50||Free *||Free||Free|
|Receive P2P transfer||-||Free||Free||Free||Free|
ecoPayz FX Fees
ecoPayz currency conversion rates are relatively inexpensive and are discounted to 1.25% when you reach the highest account level – “VIP”.
One thing to note is that the FX fee for your “ecoAccount” is based on your account level whilst the ecoPayz Mastercard has a flat rate of 2.99%.
“ecoAccount” just refers to your regular ecoPayz account that you use for transferring to merchants and transferring to other ecoPayz accounts.
|ecoAccount FX fee||2.99%||2.99%||1.49%||1.49%||1.25%|
|MasterCard FX fee||2.99%||2.99%||2.99%||2.99%||2.99%|
