What do I need to open an account with Skrill?

Opening a Skrill account is quick and easy. To register you only need to provide your name, country of residence, currency, email and password. You can now explore Skrill!

To actively start using your Skrill account, you will need to complete your registration. We will ask you for the following minimum personal information that will help us set up your Skrill wallet features:

   - Address

   - City

   - Postal code

   - Date of birth

   - Mobile phone number

To secure your newly created account, we will send you via phone or email a 6-digit verification code, that you will need to confirm. You can now start using your Skrill account!

Once you make your first successful deposit or receive money in your Skrill wallet, the option to verify your account will become available for you. You don’t need to verify your identity, though, until you reach certain transaction limit. The limits depend on the features you use and will be displayed to you when you initiate a transaction.

Note that:

  • If you don’t have a Skrill account and money is sent to you from another Skrill customer or online merchant, you will need to complete the registration in order to receive it. Once you do this, the money will be automatically added to your Skrill account in the currency you chose during the registration.
  • You may need to verify your Skrill account in order to take advantage of some of the available features.
