Skrill is currently one of the bigger online payment companys out there. They are active since 2001 and of course, they are a legitimate business.
What is Skrill?Skrill provides online payment services. You can receive money to your Skrill-Wallet and send it to your bank account or use it to buy at different online shops. Sadly, not much shops are using Skrill, it is used mostly by Online-Casinos. But if you are into gambling, Skrill is a great choice. Of course, it is free to create an account. They earn their money through their transaction fees. Sadly, the fees are quite high, if you decide to send your money from Skrill to a bank account. Skrill is able to use a lot of different currencies, that means, you don't have to exchange it by yourself all the time. Skrill automatically exchanges it to the one used in your country. For example, if I receive Dollar, Skrill exchanges it directly to Euro.
I can't tell you the exact fees, because they are different, depending on your country.
One of the most interesting things at Skrill is the possibility to buy Cryptocurrencies directly at their site. You can use your money at Skrill and buy for example Bitcoin and send it to your Bitcoin-wallet. Although I never tried it, it's a nice thing to have, if you are into Cryptocurrencies.
I also like the interface of Skrill. It's easy to use and self explanatory. You don't have to search in complex menus to find what you are looking for. It's very user friendly.
Is Skrill safe to use?Yeah. Skrill uses a 2-factor-authentication and it uses Google Authenticator for it. You can easily install it at your phone and noone is able to access your account without your email, your password and your mobile phone. That makes it really safe to use.
How can I register at Skrill?Just visit their homepage and click on register.
You have to insert your email adress and your data, use the correct ones, don't use fake names, else they can close your account.
Go to the PlayStore with your mobile phone and download Google Authenticator. With this, you can easily access your account and keep it safe.
After the registration, you have to verify your email adress and you are ready to start sending money to your Skrill-account
Why should I use Skrill and not PayPal?A lot of PTC sites for example got banned by PayPal, therefore a lot of them are using Skrill. Although I personally prefer PayPal to Skrill, you don't have a choice most of the time. But if you use online-casinos, Skrill is a perfect choice for you. You don't have to pay a fee if you send money to a merchant. That means, you can use your money at Skrill to gamble without fees. That's quite nice, if you are into such a thing.
- A lot of sites have low fees for using Skrill. ClixSense for example just takes 1% of your money as fee to cash out to Skrill.
- If you use Skrill to buy stuff online, you don't have to pay a fee
- You can buy Cryptocurrencies directly at Skrill
- Fees are high, if you want to send your money to your bank account
- If you want to send money from Skrill to Skrill, the minimum fee is 0,50 Euro
ConclusionSkrill is a nice tool to use, if you want to send and receive money from different sites online. It's best if you are into gambling. If you don't like online-casinos, I personally recommend you other E-Wallets. If you want to cashout directly to your bank account, the fees are too high. Still, it's good to use for a lot of PTC sites, because they usually take a fee of 1 % for Skrill.
