Today we are talking about Skrill, a reliable and secure payment processor . We will be able to do our operations online and it also has commissions that are quite good .

We are going to talk about how it works and the commissions it has . We will see how to verify the cards and our account . We will also take a look at how to load money and how to withdraw money . And finally we will finish the topic with an opinion about this platform.

I have been using this payment platform for some time now and I think it is worth it, especially if you work with pages to earn money on the Internet such as Clixsense or Neobux . In fact, it is a good alternative to PayPal . It has more or less decent commissions and it is also a secure and easy-to-use payment processor that you can work with without problems.
It should be noted that this payment platform is used in many online sites and virtual stores. I use it sometimes to make some purchases on the Internet and to withdraw my money in some of the pages with which I work.

Enter here:

What is Skrill and how does it work?

Skrill is a globally used payment processor , much like PayPal . This page was born under the name of Moneybook in 2002 and became Skrill in 2011. As you can see, it has been in the sector for a few years now, not to mention that it has been together with PayPal since the beginning.

On this site your account will be associated with an email, as in other payment processors. With which you can send and receive money through this online wallet.

You can also withdraw the money from Skrill and send it to your bank account without dying trying. Not like other processors, which seem to ask you for a ransom to be able to withdraw the money to our bank account and/or card.

create our account

To register we will simply have to click on the link of the official page at the beginning and register :

We fill in the fields with our data, the typical steps…

The only thing to keep in mind is to mark the currency with which we are going to operate from our account . We must be clear about the currency that we are going to use. Since, once we have registered, we will not be able to change again.

If you normally use dollars, you will need to check the dollar box. This way we will avoid commissions for currency exchange.

Remember that you must put your real data . This way you will avoid possible errors in the future when starting to operate with this platform, starting with email. They will send you a confirmation email to verify your email.

They will send you an email with the confirmation of the email verification. We will have to open and click on the link that indicates, once this is done, we will have our email confirmed (which is not the same as the verified account).

Add card or bank account

After having verified the email, the next thing we will have to do is add a credit card or bank account . It is faster by card although yes, the commissions are higher...

Next, we must fill in the fields with the card information. In my case I am going to use the Advcash virtual card , which is what I normally use. Frankly, I recommend doing it from a VISA card if you have one, since they will charge us less commissions (1.9% with Visa and 2.25% with MasterCard).

Once these steps are done, you will only have to verify the card in a few simple steps.

How to verify a Card or Bank Account

Once we have our card or account linked to Skrill, then we can verify them in the " Verify " box.

Do not forget to select the option "No games or bets " in case you are not going to use it. Immediately afterwards we will click on "Amount due and verify" and the following screen will appear that will tell us that we have to check our account where they have made the extract so that you can confirm the amount.

To finish we will have to finish verifying our card. We will go to our bank or card account, which we have linked, and we will check the amount of the statement that they have made for verification.

Once verified, we will put the exact amount of the money and that's it ... We already have our verified card ! Remember that it may take a while for the money to arrive.

How to load our account

To fill our account with money we must click on the "Load" box that appears below our balance.

We will select the method with which we want to load our Skrill account. In my case I choose Debit/Credit Card:
Load account step 2

Once the process is complete, you will receive a message on your mobile phone to confirm the operation.

The transaction should show up on your account balance and you're done.

How to withdraw money from Skrill

We have two possibilities to withdraw the money from our account.

Send money: You can send money to another account for free . The transaction is done instantly . You just have to put the email of the person you want to pass the money to and the amount. (Remember that this is only for people who have a Skrill account).

Withdraw: We can withdraw our money through a bank account or VISA card;

Click on the Withdraw box:

We select the method that we are going to use , either with a VISA card or with a bank account. In this case we are going to choose a VISA card:

Once all the fields are filled in, we will only have to verify our card.

Important: They will send us a 4-digit code that will be shown in the transaction made. We will have to verify by looking at the transaction where we have made it (VISA or bank account).

This process is a bit slow, so don't worry if it takes a while. The transaction may take a few days.

Verify Skrill Account

You do not need to verify the account to be able to operate with it . Although yes, we will have some limits, which for ordinary people like me, are more than enough.
  • Limit per operation: €1,000
  • Maximum limit that we can accumulate: €2,500
  • Maximum refund: €1,000
Even so, if we want to verify our account we can do it in a couple of simple steps…

To verify our account we will simply have to do some operation. And after making a transfer, we will get a notification in an orange rectangle letting us know if we want to verify our account:

Then we will choose the type of document we want to present to verify the account...

Your documents will be received and the verification will be processed, now you just have to wait a bit ????.

skrill commissions

The commissions may vary depending on the country where we are, you can check the commissions in your country through skrill commissions.

Here is a quick summary of all the commissions that Skrill has:

Commissions for loading the account:

Here I leave all the Skrill commissions to load/add money to our account:
  • By bank transfer: 0%
  • RapidTransfer: 0.50%
  • Top up with Bitcoins: 1%
  • Fast Bank Transfer: 1,50%
  • immediate transfer: 1.90%
  • Trustly: 1,95%
  • Neteller: 3.00%
  • Swift Transfer: 0%
  • Visa card: 1.90%
  • MasterCard: 2,25%
  • Paysafe card: 7.50%

As you can see, the best way to add funds is through Bank Transfer.

The only problem is that it takes a while to arrive (3-5 days). If you are not in a hurry, I recommend this type of operation to transfer money to you.

Commissions for withdrawing money:

These are the commissions if we want to withdraw our money from Skrill to another site.
  • Bank transfer: €5.5
  • VISA card: 7.5%
  • Swift: 5,5€
As you can see, they are a bit high, but even so, they are not entirely bad if we compare them with some of their competitors…

We can take advantage of the fixed amounts of money per transfer (€5.5 per transfer) to send us large sums of money, since they are not going to charge us more, since it is not a percentage.

Skrill prepaid card

The card that Skrill offers us is a prepaid MasterCard card . It can be useful if we are interested in withdrawing our money from an ATM, for example, or doing other types of card operations.

In addition , you do not need to have a bank account since it is a prepaid card. So your bank details will remain completely safe.

The Skrill card has an annual cost of €10.

This card has a limit of €1,000 per transaction .

The card usually takes 2 weeks to arrive , once you receive it you will only have to activate it through your account.

Card only available in Europe.

Opinion about skrill Is it safe and reliable?

It is clear that it is a secure and reliable payment processor . The fact that he has so many years behind him proves it.

As a payment processor, it's not bad at all. In addition, this processor is one of the few with which you can make purchases directly over the Internet , either in some online stores or other services.

It should be noted that the commissions are a tad lower than on other platforms , but it is not anything special either.

In short, it is a good place to withdraw money from some pages like Clixsense or Neobux.

Positive aspects
  • We can operate with our account without verifying it . That is, they will not give us the pain in the ass every time, as in other pages.
  • Affiliate program: It has an interesting affiliate program, with which it adds a plus. You can always get a little money sponsoring your affiliate link.
  • Easy to use: Everything is clearer than in many other payment processors.
  • I have used the ticket support to make several queries and they have responded quite quickly (on a working day), although I must say that this is nothing new, since almost all of these well-known payment platforms have good customer service in general.
  • They also have the Skrill App for mobile devices. You can manage your account and make your operations through this application.
Negative aspects
  • The commissions, despite the fact that they are lower than in other processors in some cases, I think they are still high . To try to compete with PayPal they have light years left.
  • I believe that there are some steps that are not very clear , such as verifying the account ... It seems as if they do not want you to verify the account until they do well. Isn't it easier to verify the account when I get out of the minga? ????
  • To withdraw money from Skrill , it can only be done by bank transfer or VISA card . If you want to put a MasterCard like me, you can't... a pity.
  • Another disadvantage is that, as in other payment processors similar to this one, your card is not available to everyone , at the moment only for European countries: S.
In short, Skrill is a solution to pay and withdraw our money from some pages that we usually work with , such as Clixsense, Neobux or any other that accepts this platform. Its commissions are well above those of PayPal, but even so it is one of the few alternatives that there are on some pages.
