How to verify my account and increase my limits?

Increasing your limits is usually a matter of providing additional account verifications which is quick and easy. You can find out what your current limits are in the Limits & Verification, located in the Settings section of your Skrill account.

Once you have started using your account to make transactions, you will be given the option to provide an additional verification of your identity, by uploading a clear, legible, valid and unaltered scanned colour copy or photo of one of the following documents:

  • The front and back of your driving license
  • The photo page of your passport
  • Front and back of your national ID card
  • Address verification document
  • Face match/selfie picture of your ID

You can start the process of uploading a copy of your photo identification documents by clicking on the orange banner, visible after you login to your Skrill wallet.

This will take you to the Verify Your Details page where all remaining verification steps will be displayed.

You can choose to verify your account via your Facebook profile or to follow the standard verification flow.

Once you start the Verify your ID process, you will be prompted to enable your Webcam or download the Skrill Mobile App to initiate a face match/selfie picture of your ID. If you don’t have a webcam on your computer, you can download the Skrill application (Skrill Google Play/Skrill Apple App Store) and use your smartphone camera in order to easily complete this verification step.

By clicking on “Verify now” you will be given the option to choose your document type and country of issuance. 


Note: The country of issuance will be preselected based on your country of registration. If your ID document is issued by another country, please selected it from the drop-down menu. Failure to change to the correct country may cause upload error.

At this point you will be required to use your webcam to capture a new copy of your document and a selfie, which we will use to verify your identity.

After successfully using your webcam or the mobile app to submit an image of your ID and face/selfie, both the Verify Your ID and the Verify Account Ownership steps will be IN REVIEW.
 

Once the documents are successfully processed you will receive an email and the Verify Your ID and the Verify Account Ownership steps will show as COMPLETED.

If you have previously shared your browser location, the 'Verify your location' step may automatically be completed, if you are logging in from your registered Skrill address.


If you have not yet shared your browser location, you will be prompted to do it to fulfill the Verify Your Location requirement.

Depending on your country of residence it might not be possible to verify your address via geolocation sharing even if you are at your registered Skrill address. In this case, you will be asked to manually upload an address verification document.
