Why Skrill?

Available in 12 languages, Skrill (formerly Moneybookers) is a convenient money transfer method that allows you to deposit and withdraw anywhere from small to large (e.g. US$10,000/€10,000/£10,000 or more) sums of money to and from online bookmakers seamlessly. Aside from Skrill (and NETELLER), the only other option available for players wanting to conduct a large sum money transfer would be via international bank wire transfer. Since international bank wire transfers are not only time-consuming but are also subject to high transaction fees, this is one reason in particular why we recommend Skrill for conducting money transfers to and from online bookmakers.

Skrill Prepaid MasterCardAnother advantage of creating a Skrill account is you can then apply for a prepaid MasterCard debit card with which you can use to withdraw funds from your account at ATMs worldwide. The benefits and fees associated with the Skrill prepaid MasterCard debit card are as follows:

  • Free online and offline shopping
  • Cards available in EUR, GBP, PLN or USD for use globally
  • Fixed €1.80 local or foreign ATM transaction fee *local ATMs may apply a surcharge
  • Fixed 2.49% foreign currency conversion rate
  • €10 per year card fee
But that’s not all. Aside from convenience and the prepaid debit card, further Skrill benefits include:
  • Sending money costs 1% of the amount sent but is capped at a maximum of €10
  • Paying at a shop or transferring funds with any merchant is free *if the currency is the same
  • Receiving money is free of charge
  • Uploading funds into your Skrill account is usually free, but some options involve a small charge
  • Your Skrill account is free for personal use as long as you login or make a transaction at least every 12 months *if you don’t do this, a service fee of EUR 1.00 (or equivalent) will be deducted monthly from the funds in your account
Note that Skrill will add the following charges to cover all transactions involving currency conversion when transferring money from your account online:
  • 2.99% charge for money transfers between USD, GBP, EUR, CAD or PLN currencies
  • 3.99% charge for transfers between USD, GBP, EUR, CAD, PLN and any other currency
  • 4.99% charge for transfers involving any other currency

※ As the foreign currency conversion fees can be costly, this is why we recommend the currency of your Skrill account and the currency of your online bookmaker account(s) to be the same. By following our recommendation, not only will you have access to more funds to play with online but also will be able to receive your funds in full when ready to withdraw.
