Overall Satisfaction with Skrill

I have been using Skrill for seven years and I am still a customer today. It is a platform that offers a simple aesthetic and although we could say that it is at the forefront of certain things, it continuously offers improvements, slight, but improvements at last in the use of tools to improve the user experience. Business-wise it has made it easier for us to pay freelancers around the world, it has practicality in this case that is fantastic and that keeps it over time, which is the immediacy. As against is the high price that increases and increases in commissions at the time of making such payments or withdrawals.
  • The immediacy of payments between accounts.
  • Clear interface and menus.
  • Breadth of services and continuous improvements.
  • It has very high commissions, even on small transaction amounts.
  • The number of currencies available varies by country of shipment.
  • Offer more transfer methods than just bank or digital wallets.
  • It has a high level of security. For financial reasons that is a great relief.
  • The user experience is streamlined and simple.
  • Great tool for payments to the self-employed, freelancers and sole entrepreneurs.
  • I can quickly deposit my international multi-currency account without making an expensive wire transfer, with no border restriction as long as I have the mobile app with me.
  • Skrill is very convenient for each transfer amount up to EURO 2,500, and EURO 15,000/monthly.
  • Possibility of hiring freelancers for my company with immediate payments.
Skrill is free to get started. It has a wide range of tools at the disposal of the model used that make the work and tasks of money transfers agile. Compared to Paypal Pro which requires a monthly subscription, and a smaller range of tools (even though it is paid).

Skrill ends up, in my experience, being an effective tool and one of the most versatile and accessible international transfer service options. It is not recommended for withdrawals to banks and wallets outside the platform, the fees are calculated through an exchange rate margin that is not transparent. The immediacy makes it a useful tool for work, but at the same time, there are often cases where transfers are delayed and the support service is non-existent.
