Overall Satisfaction with Skrill

We used Skrill to pay our service providers in non-U.S. based countries, allowing them to receive the funds using Skrill Money Transfer and other transfer solutions, store them in a Skrill "digital wallet" etc.
  • Skrill allows paying with fairly low fees
  • Skrill supports quite a few locations and currencies
  • Skrill allows usage by people using different languages, which makes it easier to sync with non-English speakers
  • Skrill has an average but not terrible business account management system
  • Skrill's UI can be bloated and slow sometimes, and overcomplicated
  • There are some issues with localization and language, some concepts didn't see to be translated properly
  • What an e-wallet is, is not super clear to potential users
  • Transfer target management
  • Support for multiple currencies and languages
  • Cheap fees and fast transfers
  • Skrill has simplified payments to various countries that we used to transfer funds to using multiple other vendors, saving on time and increasing ROI
  • Skrill has good local payment options so allows service providers to easily receive funds, increasing happiness and decreasing churn
  • Skrill has good support for multiple languages, allowing easier usage by service providers who receive the funds, cutting down on support requests and questions
Skrill is cheaper and seems simpler, most times, but perhaps lacks some advanced features that cause us to end up using another vendor.

Do you think Skrill delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Skrill's feature set?


Did Skrill live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Skrill go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Skrill again?


Compared to alternatives, it is fairly cheap, fast and fair - so I'd give it a proper recommendation.

Using Skrill

2 - Payouts and billing for customers and service providers
1 - Head of Service Provider Success
  • Payouts to service providers
  • Tracking payouts over time, metrics/statistics
  • Sanity, payouts compared to payins
We ended up using Tipalti which seems to have solved our specific needs better, though it is more expensive.
