Over the years, we have added support for Western Union payments, bank wire transfers, as well as for different types of credit and debit cards in our quest to make our services accessible to everyone, everywhere. Skrill payments helps us to get closer to our goal!
Skrill is an e-commerce platform, which allows customers to make payments choosing between a variety of methods. We don’t have to necessarily support these payment methods ourselves, since many of them are country-specific. When making a purchase, the customer will transfer the money to their Skrill account first and then Skrill will transfer the funds to us.
The added bonus is that Skrill does not charge customers any additional payment fees, which allows us to keep our prices the way they are!
Existing Skrill users can also enter a VIP program through which Skrill will reward them with VIP points for every transaction they make, which can be cashed at a later time.
Skrill was founded in 2001 and back then was known as Moneybookers. In 2002, Skrill became the first FCA-regulated eMoney issuer in Europe. In 2010, Skrill was acknowledged as the fastest-growing, private equity-backed company in the UK profit-wise. Since then, Skrill has experienced constant growth and now more than 36,000,000 end customers and around 150,000 merchants are using its payment gateway.
