What is Purpose of Deposit?

When uploading funds with a credit/debit card, you will be asked to choose the purpose of use for the deposited funds. The two options to choose from are gambling (skill gaming, wagering, fantasy games, sports betting, etc.) and non-gambling (shopping, etc.) purpose of use.

Funds deposited for gambling purposes can be used for all types of payments with the Skrill wallet, including transfers to gaming merchants.

Funds deposited with the non-gambling purpose of use can be used for all types of payments with the Skrill wallet or Skrill card, except transfers to gambling merchants.

Note: Non-gambling funds cannot be used for gambling merchants. Once funds are deposited, their purpose of use cannot be changed.

Can I use my Visa card for gambling transactions?

Sure! You will, however, need to select the gambling merchant in advance. A list of currently supported merchants will appear onscreen. If the desired merchant is not on that list, you can go back and deposit for non-gambling purposes. You will not be able to change the selected merchant afterward. Funds deposited with Visa can only be sent to the single preselected merchant or later on withdrawn to your bank account. They cannot be sent to other merchant websites!
