What's the difference between my Skrill account and a bank account?

Your Skrill account offers you far more than an ordinary bank account. It acts as a Digital Wallet, giving you the flexibility to pay with your uploaded funds, your bank account, or your debit or credit cards. With a Skrill account, you're firmly in control.

And while most banks offer only limited coverage, Skrill is global. With Skrill, you can do much more than just transfer funds from one account to another. When you are sending money across borders, the transaction is instant and costs no more than €10. This makes Skrill probably the cheapest and fastest way to send international payments.
