EcoPayz Registration – How to create a new account & FAQ’s

EcoPayz is an excellent e-money service for those who want to trade forex, gamble, invest in cryptocurrency, or send and receive money between friends. While there is certainly a lot to talk about today, it’s all luckily quite straightforward. Today, we’re talking about EcoPayz registration: how does it work, what do you need, and what can you get out of it?

Let’s get you some answers.

EcoPayz Registration 101

First things first, we’re going to give a simple guide to registering for EcoPayz. After that, we’ll talk about requirements, benefits, and more – so stay tuned.

Step-by-Step Guide to EcoPayz Registration

Registering for EcoPayz is actually quite simple. It’s entirely free and takes a matter of seconds – though verification is another story. Though – today, we’re talking about how to register for an account.

To register for an EcoPayz account, simply do the following:

  1. Go to
  2. Choose a username.
    • You’ll use this to log in, so make it easy to remember but hard to guess.
  3. Enter an email address that you check regularly.
  4. Choose (or randomize) a password. The more secure, the better.
  5. Enter your country of residence and preferred language, along with your preferred currency.
  6. Enter personal information:
    • Your first & last name
    • Date of birth
    • Full home address (this will be verified, so make sure it’s accurate)
    • Your cell phone number – this is mandatory.
    • Enter the validation (Captcha) code displayed in the next section
    • Read and agree to EcoPayz’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy (boring, but it’s always good to be informed.)
  7. Select “Create Account”
  8. Success!

But there’s another way that is often missed, and it offers a number of excellent reasons to choose it instead. Of course, I’m talking about connecting your EwalletUpgrades (EWU) and EcoPayz accounts – let’s break that down a bit more, shall we?

Through EwalletUpgrades

So what exactly do I mean when I say “connect your EWU and EcoPayz accounts?” EwalletUpgrades & EcoPayz have been partners for several years now. Each user who connects their accounts gains the following benefits:

  1. Streamlined verification (under 12 hours vs. 1-5 business days for verification to process)
  2. Free verification (which traditionally requires a €10 deposit)
  3. Gold VIP status after registration and verification (standard users get one level lower, Silver VIP).
  4. Reduced fees on forex and card transactions
  5. Free Peer-to-Peer (P2P) transactions

So – how do you connect your EWU and EcoPayz accounts to get access to these awesome perks?

The Process To Sign Up To Payz

This is a pretty straightforward process. You’ll need a few things, specifically:

  • A valid government-issued ID (passport, driver’s license, etc.)
  • Recent mail (bank statement, paid utility bill) with your name and home address correctly listed.
  • A high-quality selfie (don’t include glasses or anything else that may obscure your face) in colour 

Now – here’s how to connect your EWU and EcoPayz accounts:

  1. Follow steps 1 and 2 shown here

And best of all, you don’t need to make a deposit when connecting EWU and EcoPayz, meaning this whole process is the best price possible – free.

How to Find Your EcoPayz Account ID

Locating your EcoPayz account ID is very straightforward compared to other eWallets. Simply log in to your account and it will be straight in front of you labelled Account Number.

EcoPayz Joining Bonus

EcoPayz does not have a joining bonus in any form.

While this is certainly disappointing to hear (After all, who doesn’t like free stuff?), there is a solution. EwalletUpgrades offers several super-handy benefits that reward new and returning EcoPayz members for simply using their accounts as normal. Skip to the next section for more details.

EwalletUpgrades & EcoPayz Sign Up Bonus

Each of the perks detailed here acts as a form of sign-up bonus for new EcoPayz users. Traditionally, users will need to register, wait up to a week for verification, and then spend a hefty chunk of money to acquire EcoPayz Gold.

With EwalletUpgrades, verification time is cut down to a max of twelve hours, verification is free, and you gain instant access to EcoPayz Gold, along with numerous other benefits. Find out all of the benefits EwalletUpgrades offer with EcoPayz here.

What Do I Need to Create an EcoPayz Account?

As mentioned above, to create an EcoPayz account, you only need a handful of easily-acquired items:

  • A first and last name
  • Date of birth
  • A home address (which can be verified)
  • A cell phone number and email address
  • Valid government-issued ID
  • Five minutes of time to fill out all of this
  • €10 to verify your account, not to register

As an extension of the above point, you’ll need some way to transfer money. This can be with a bank account or credit/debit card.

Beyond that, there really is very little that you need – after all, EcoPayz wants it to be simple to use their platform. That’s… kinda the whole point.

How Old Do You Have To Be To Use EcoPayz?

Anyone over eighteen (18) years of age can use EcoPayz. 

While some areas may restrict certain features (such as gambling for those under the age of 21), that’s only due to local regulations, not EcoPayz policies.

Do You Need an ID For EcoPayz?

Yes, you need an ID for EcoPayz. While you can open an account without one, you will be unable to verify without a valid government-issued ID in some form.

Do You Need A Bank Account For EcoPayz?

You don’t need a bank account for EcoPayz – however, as (briefly) mentioned above, you do need some form of payment to use EcoPayz. 

EcoPayz takes international bank transfers, credit and debit cards, and a few local options when available.

Do You Need A Credit Card For EcoPayz?

As with the bank account question, you don’t need a credit card for EcoPayz – however, you will need some form of payment. 

What Is EcoPayz Secure ID?

EcoPayz doesn’t have a Secure ID programme, unlike some other competitors in the same niche (such as Neteller). Some services opt to provide a “Secure ID,” which doubles as a secondary form of authentication when logging in. Think of it as a combination of your password and username, which you enter alongside the other two. 

Secure ID ultimately serves as another means to verify your identity, but EcoPayz doesn’t use this because of two main reasons:

  • EcoPayz automatically encrypts every ounce of data that crosses through their servers, meaning they’re already a step above some other competitors in terms of security.
  • And, EcoPayz requires users to verify and enable two-factor authentication (2FA), which is essentially the purpose that Secure ID already serves.
    • Most of EcoPayz’s competitors encourage 2FA, though they’re the only one that outright requires it.

And that’s that! 


The reality of registering for EcoPayz is that it’s incredibly simple. The most complicated thing you’ll need is a piece of mail with your name and address listed – and we all have that… somewhere. Beyond that, assuming you’re a legal adult with a name, date of birth, ID, and ~five minutes, you’re able to register on EcoPayz, free of charge.

If you want to get more than the average EcoPayz user, though, connecting EwalletUpgrades to your EcoPayz account is the fastest (and best) way to get rewarded for just using EcoPayz as normal. You can sign up using the form below.
