I have done a few bank withdrawal requests around 2-3pm and have it in my bank account the next day. If you put in a request now you should probably have the money by wednesday. They are really fast.
I have never done a card withdrawal so can't say. I also don't know if it helps that I am a vip. I don't know if it it was MB or NT that promoted faster payout times for vips. But I am 99% sure that you should have your money in good time for the weekend if you request it now.
I did a request around 2pm today by the way. I will let you know how long it takes.
It does not depends only on moneybookers, but also on how your bank handle the international IBAN transfers.

Anyway, I requested a bank transfer as soon as the money came back from betfair this morning, and within 30 mins it's gone from pending to processed
Now I've just got to deal with the withdrawal symptoms, several weeks of not staring at odds, I don't know how I'll cope.
As predicted the money is already in my bank account.
Hazard, I am not sure if they use international bank transfer. When I upload money I am sending it to a Norwegian bank, so maybe the withdrawals come through that bank too so it would not have to go through the international system.
But it should not take any longer for anyone based in the UK to get the money anyway.
FWIW I use Lloyds bank and bank withdrawals take 3-5 days for me. Annoyingly Moneybookers OWN bank is Lloyds as well and so really it should be (literally) an instant withdrawal. I can only presume they do that so they can maximize the return they make on my money being held with them one way or another - why it's instant then for overseas users whilst taking 3-5 days for customers who use the same bank as them... I don't know.
Alternatively I've made one withdrawal via card in the past and that was actually instant... so not sure why bank withdrawals take so long. It doesn't really bother me too much because I only tend to make a withdrawal once at the start of each month (actually probably every other month).
Does anyone know if moneybookers would have a problem with 2 people living in the same household each having an account?
I don't see why that would be a problem? Have you read their T&Cs? Is anything like that mentioned there? They're not a bookies, they can't "lose" money through couples both using their services and sharing knowledge etc... if anything they'd probably be keen on it.

From my experience, withdrawals to my UK accounts take 2-3 days.

Yeah I couldn't be arsed reading all the T&C's....there's alot! I scanned through and didn't see anything. I rekon it'll be alright too, but I think I'll email them and ask just in case. Cheers Riklet.

Does it matter if I use an email which is already registered on my £Stg a/c (I have two registered)?
If I've transferred from £Stg MB into a bookmaker and the funds have been converted to US$ can I then (once wagering is completed) transfer those funds to the US$ MB account rather than the £Stg MB account or does it have to go back to exactly the same original account?
