It is a so-called e-wallet provider that allows users to make payments in real time. Since 2015, Skrill has been part of the listed Paysafe Group. Other brands of this payment service provider are Neteller and paysafecard.

The British Financial Services Authority (FSA) is responsible for regulating the e-wallet provider.
How is a Skrill payment processed?
First of all, the interested party must create a free account with Skrill. Subsequently, the account is then loaded with funds using a payment method of his choice. For example, the account can be topped up via bank transfer, via various credit cards or via Rapid Transfer. After this step is completed, a Deposit can be made with Skrill in the online store or Online Casino of one's choice. All that is needed is the access data for the Skrill account. After just a few clicks, the transaction is completed in seconds.
Skrill in online casinos
Especially because of the high speed deposits and withdrawals with Skrill in online casinos are extremely popular. In addition, Skrill is offered in many online casinos as a means of payment, so it is very widespread. However, it should be noted that Skrill belongs to the so-called excluded deposit methods in many bonus promotions. This means that especially welcome offers for new customers usually cannot be claimed if the respective deposit is made with Skrill. The same is usually true for deposits made via Neteller.
