Do I need to verify my identity?

You can use your Skrill account without verifying your details to send and receive funds up to a limited amount. When you reach this limit, in accordance with our responsibilities as an FCA regulated financial institution and for security reasons, we are required to verify your identity. 

At the time of you reaching this limit, you will be temporarily unable to make transactions to or from your Skrill wallet.

An easy way to ensure you have continuous access to all your Skrill wallet benefits is to actively complete your identity verification. 

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

  • The front and back of your driving licence.
  • The photo page of your passport.
  • Front and back of your national ID card.

You can find further details on how to complete this here.
