What do I need to become a verified merchant?

Verified merchants benefit from lower reserves, more payment options and unlimited transactions when sending and receiving money worldwide. Once verified, you can also take advantage of various marketing opportunities.

Merchants who operate as a separate legal entity must have documents that clearly confirm their commercial status.

The minimum requirements for verification are:

  1. A colour copy of a valid official identification document of the Skrill account holder, such as your passport, national identity card (front and back) or driving licence.

  2. Proof of the registered company's address such as a utility bill or bank statement issued within the last three months, confirming the name of the registered representative or business and the business address. Alternatively, we can accept a screen shot from the relevant Companies House registration.

  3. Certificate of Incorporation or similar document that proves you are operating a legitimate business. (Not applicable for sole traders.)

  4. Details of your shareholders and business partners if applicable – please enter the names of the shareholders and directors of the company on a company letterhead and have this signed and stamped.

  5. A completed Merchant Questionnaire.

This list covers minimum requirements and additional documents or information may be requested.
