This is a discussion on Multi site accounts - how to transfer money within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Hi all,
Right now i have my account with stars but will soon be registering with a couple other sites, just to try them out.
Right now i have my account with stars but will soon be registering with a couple other sites, just to try them out. Lets say i open an account with Full tilt, Pacific poker & Noble poker. Whats would be the best & fastest way to move my money around?
Example: i have $100 in stars and i want to move it all to noble for 1 week, then over to pacific etc. Cashing out and re-depositing seems like that may cause some pain as I could wait a while for the cheque to arrive from one site, then going to a bank, waiting for it to clear and then re-depositing.
I do have an account with Net-Teller, would that be a good idea?
If anyone here does have several sites they play at, how do you do it?
I don't know if it makes any difference but i am in Australia and I think the rules here with online game play aren't that bad. I'm a little unaware of all gaming laws in USA, but do think it sucks and hope none of you get restricted too much.
Anyways all suggestions welcome and thanks in advance for advice.

I use Moneybookers same concept as Netteller and it works fine, wthin 24hrs my withdrawal is put into the moneybookers account from all poker sites and then I deposit via moneybookers to other sites and the money is there instantly.
Can you expand on e-checks, what are they, how does it work etc, where can i go for more information and would it be easier than options such as neteller & moneybookers?

Since you have Neteller already, that should do the job just fine.

re: Poker & Multi site accounts - how to transfer money
e-checks are basically an electronic version of a check. I dont use them very often but not hard to understand pokerstars and google have info on them but theres not that much to know.

e-checks are only available on some sites, and not to all members.
Your best bet is to find a common e-wallet (Neteller or Moneybookers being two popular ones) that is available on most of the sites that you want to play on and use that to move money around.
Unfortunately, a lot of people were doing this with EPassporte and they are now stuck doing private trades with people to move money on and off their accounts. I would recommend against keeping any money in an ewallet to avoid this type of issue. If you move cash into it, it should be redeposited somewhere else or withdrawn completely.
