How does Skrill work?

e-Wallets offer faster transaction times than even conventional bank accounts and in recent years Skrill has emerged as the leader in the e-Wallet marketplace. There are several reasons for this, most notably their highly competitive rates for deposits and withdrawals.

To create an account, you only need a valid email address and when depositing funds or paying for goods, Skrill offers three solutions. Firstly a simple transfer which takes 2-3 days. Second a card deposit where the money is transferred instantly but there’s a charge of 1% and lastly a cheque, which can take up to 10 days for funds to clear.
