Which type of business account is right for me?

Skrill offers a choice of three types of business accounts:

  • A merchant account is any account with a commercial purpose built on custom websites or using HTML gateway integration, shopping cart solutions or auction platforms.
  • An expense account is usually a company Skrill account that you may use to pay your employees, freelancers, suppliers, etc via our cost-effective instant standard send money service.
  • A freelance account is an account registered as private and is for individuals or companies who do not use their own website, ecommerce solution or auction site, but who still accepts payments for services offered online. At Skrill you can receive payments for the services or products which you offer, such as scriptwriting, translations, photographs, website developing and much more.

If you are in doubt as to which type of account with suit you best, please contact the Skrill Merchant Services Team and we’ll be happy to help you choose the account that's right for you.
