Today we’re going to outline all possible qualities and shortcomings of the well-established payment system - Skrill.
Skrill gives you a possibility to send and receive money using only email addresses. The company was established on 18 June, 2001 in London and was called Moneybookers until 2011.
At the moment it belongs to the Paysafe Group and is one of the most popular payment systems along with PayPal, Payoneer, and Payeer. Skrill is supported in 180+ countries and transactions through the system are executed in 40 currencies.
Merely a few clicks separate you from the successful sign-up - it’s pretty easy and completely free. Just perform the following steps:
It is worth mentioning that true personal information is a must. The information you provided would be verified in different ways which we will elaborate on further. The verification is carried out to make sure you’re a real person and indicate your personal information correctly.
Take our advice and open the Skrill account in euro since it’s a universal currency, which is accepted in most bookmaker offices. This way you won’t have to spend extra money on conversion.
When the whole procedure is over, you are assigned an ID and your account is activated. Please be advised that you cannot change the currency after the registration.
Skrill provides different deposit / withdrawal options and commission depending on your location. For example, these are the following deposit options for UK:
Each Skrill user can obtain one of the three VIP statuses: Silver, Gold, and Diamond. The status depends on the transaction amounts for the specific quarter of the current year.
To gain the Silver status one should transfer no less than €15 000 per quarter, Gold - €45 000, and Diamond - €90 000.
reasonable question comes up - what the VIP status gives you? It gives more favourable terms for transaction / withdrawal and deposit, opportunity to open multi-currency account and other benefits. More on Skrill VIP statuses here.
The overall limit of €2500 and €1000 on transactions (or any other currency equivalent) is established for your account right after the registration.
It’s possible to raise the transaction limit by undergoing verification which consists of several stages and includes proof of identity (uploading of documents), home address and credit card verification.
