How to Use Webmoney

Moscow, Russia-based WebMoney is a global online funds transfer and payment system that enables individuals and businesses to send and receive invoices and payments online.

Fund your WebMoney purse by wire transfer. Other WebMoney users may also deposit funds into your purse.


Withdraw funds from your WebMoney purse. You can have money wired to your bank account or transfer funds to other WebMoney users.
