Skrill Money Transfer Reviews

Posted on June 13, 2022 06:38 am

I've registered on Skrill thinking it was a secure wallet for my money, BIG MISTAKE, they will steal your money and ban your account for no reason, just read the reviews of other people on it they all have the same problem: Skrill stole their money and closed their account for absolutely no reason. Good reviews? They are all just bots used by the company to make their fraud look trustworthy, if you are reading this please don't trust them with your money. Here is my story: I registered with Skrill and for a week; didn't have any problems, did some transadtions with small amounts, no problem, but guess what happened after I put a high amount on my account? I recieved this email: Dear Ray*** Ben*****, Your account has been permanently closed. Best Regards, Skrill And NO REASON SPECIFIED WHATSOVER, they just closed my account out of nowhere without giving me a reason nor even a warning so I can withdraw my funds before they close it? Now my money is GONE no way to get it back tried every way to login and I guess they took my money, just like that! Thank you so much Skrill for stealing my money and closing my account!

I always send money with debit card. Recipient receive the money within hours. Never had any issue with Skrill. But every time I come to review, I find way too many unsatisfied customer. Skrill should have a better customer communication/relationship and avoid this unnecessary bad review.

this is the worst merchant provider I've ever worked with. Was with them for 5 years. As payment sender much like PayPal (not as a merchant account). Out of nowhere they close the account (without warning, no email nothing) and demand a bunch of documents (the exact same documents we gave them when we opened the account such as LLC docs, records with state of California, tax status, and bank account). We give them all of this of course. They take about 3 months. Never get back to us unless we ask, then send a "sorry we're closing the account" letter. They are STILL HOLDING $1200 because they conveniently can't find a record of a transfer in their systems.

I am sending money for a while with Skrill using my Debit card with no issue. Money is transferred within hour and best rate compare to other transfer services. With that said, the friends I referred to didn't have the same experience. They couldn't use their Debit card, some bank will restrict such transfer.

Quick hassle free transfer via Debit card. Compare Remit rates are all wrong. Not showing transfer fee properly for some sites.

Posted on August 15, 2021 07:15 am

it is good and secure but the rate showing in compare remit is not matching the rate provided in site.

Posted on August 03, 2021 10:42 pm

The conversion rate mentioned in Compareremit is not matching with the actual rate by Skrill. It's misguiding the customers.

I tried ti make a Rapid Instant Bank Transfer by Skrill to my account as I always did in the last 10 month. It was on 4th of June and the deposit amount was about 125 USD. They collect the money from my private bank account but it did not arrived on my Pokerstars account. I informed them about this issue. They send me an offical reply via email about it was a failed transaction ans they will refund me this money in 2-5 work days. We changing many emails and we taled on phone, but I did not get neither information nor the refund. I dont have any though what is going on. Why I dont get back my money? Who knows. Is there anybody was in similair situation with money transfer?

don't take nay risk to use Skrill for withdrawal they will never support is any delay happen or lif you will not receive payment since 2 months i am facing issue for payment from skill and they are not supporting.

Posted on May 18, 2021 05:05 pm

Horrible customer care, I would have given 0 if I can. They do not understand what the issue is and different teams do not know what the processes and procedures are. I made a transaction for which it was asking for verification but I do not have a place to upload verification documents. I called Customer care and they asked me to email which I did but the security team said they cannot accept. Then I called them about 10 times and every time my case was escalated and the resolution was I need to upload my verification documents again. which I was not able to, finally they cancelled my transaction and permanently closed the account.

Posted on May 14, 2021 12:23 pm

I was unable to use bank account to send the money. They kept showing errors. They showed using credit card as an option without providing any warning that credit card company will charge you for cash advance fees.

I have been using Skrill for a few months now & my experience has been amazing. The transfers are super-fast & the exchange rates are the best too! I would recommend people give it a try!!

One of the best Money Transfer site I've ever used... I recommend Skrill... High transfer rate and takes less time for transfer.

Posted on April 12, 2021 09:49 am

Really good nice exchange rate

Posted on April 05, 2021 12:34 pm

My first transfer itself credited in my account within 3 hours. Great service and very fast. By looking at poor rating reviews, I was scared to transfer the amount through Skrill. But, After I transfer, I feel it great and Now I recommend to my friends.

Hello All, Very poor customer care service. if I can give zero rating but this option is not here. currently they are showing some promotional in their website and I used this promotion in my transaction so they cancelled my transaction and ask me to upload my KYC documents. I uploaded 3 times but every time they are rejecting my docs. i think they are doing it intensely because i will use that promotion. very frusted from their customer care.

Posted on March 31, 2021 12:38 pm

Not sure about the services for other countries. But I have used skrill to send funds to India from US on a consistent basis. And not once did I have any issues. Funds reaches just within a day. Communication is excellent and best of all the conversion rates are by far better than any other. Skrill does not employ those trap tactics like some other companies who will advertise a rate of exchange with their fine prints = in other words you dont have to guess whether your rate is accurate or not when using skrill. These are great people.

Posted on March 31, 2021 09:59 am

Worst site. if you tempt with rate also service is worst. Please do not go with skrill. I never saw this much worst service. Your time will be wast. Even transfer rate is a bit less also go with others who give good service. For me one hour west and finally canceled the transaction. Worst website.

Remittance is very fast but they are keep on asking verification documents even though I sent multiple times. Customer service is worst service, while speaking with executive he disconnected phone.

Been very satisfied with the rates & delivery times. Their rates are much better than the competitors. Will certainly recommend to all my friends.

Posted on January 17, 2021 10:33 am

They keep on asking verification documents even though i sent multiple times. they never respond to it. worst service

Posted on January 15, 2021 11:54 am

after making 4 transactions they keep on asking for bank statements and they want debit card number printed on bank statements which doesn’t exist, it’s just waste of time arguing with dumb stupid customer care.

Posted on January 08, 2021 05:51 pm

Very easy to send money. Excellent

Posted on January 05, 2021 10:43 pm

Great Experience so far using debt card. Best rate. Quick Transfer.

Posted on January 05, 2021 08:10 am

Worse ever. I initiated a transfer, after three days called customer care. They asked me to cancel and it will take another three days to refund the full amount. Also they mentioned they have issues with system and will be fixed. I dont know how long. But dont transfer unless you enjoy calling customer care several times.

Posted on January 04, 2021 09:54 pm

I think the services are good once you go past the initial setup .Money transfer is much more quicker than the other competitors and the rate is real time at the moment.Below link can be used for $10 bonus on first transfer

Posted on December 29, 2020 08:36 am

Customer service experience is THE WORST. They don't have tendency of helping the customers. My account is restricted, they have asked me 1000s of supporting documents, i have provided them everything even my granny Birth certificate ! :) They are asking me bank statement showing "Skrill transactions", you got that! yes when my account is restricted how i will be able to do transaction and provide them a statement with Skrill transaction. I tried to explain them through phone call, email posting message in their site. But nothing worked, the final response i got is "Sir please provide us statement with Skrill transaction" we will be able to remove restriction, so that is not gonna happen anytime. This could be a SPAM service, be careful

After using several services for money transfer, I know the process of providing ID and other documentation, especially for the new accounts. With lot of patience I provided documents multiple times every time they asked. None of my transactions are going through and account will get blocked for future transfers for no reason. Every time I call customer support or open case through online, they provide copy+paste of some basic template like solution and close the issue. They don't have any idea why the transaction are getting blocked. After close to 15 attempts (Yes, I wanted to see how long the failure goes), I am finally now giving up Skrill for the below reasons: 1. Skrill money transfer is a scam 2. Customer support don't have any idea why the transaction failed, every time I called, after 24 hours account restriction will be fixed, but you still can't able to get successful transaction 3. You will end up with frustration for losing your valuable time, fear of missing money (sometimes amount will be reversed after few days) If you still want to fall skrill scam for few cents higher than other wonderful services around, I'm sure you will be the next one to write review like me.

Skrill is really pain in the neck. For no reason it started giving a false error that my Debit card is not authorized by my bank, however I am able to use all my Debit cards on other online merchants. After 7-8 retries with my debit card, it restricted my account. To 'unrestrict' your account you need to provide a credit card statement. And I've tried uploading a CC statement 10+ times, but it is stuck in a loop. It doesn't show the uploaded statement anywhere and keeps showing the "Upload Document" button dashboard. I tried opening 3-4 customer tickets, and they keep closing it with automated responses "your account is restricted please upload CC statement." or "We don't see any document uploaded by you. Please upload a CC statement". After reading other reviews here, I have decided to give up on Skrill. Good bye

Great rates and getting hold of customer service agents is also comparatively easier, but they are ill informed of the process. When I made a trasaction using my debit card, they needed a debit card statement. Which is not possible, but first off the request on the website does not inform what they need so I tried multiple documents DL to multiple CC statements utility bills, all rejected without a reason. After multiple calls with the customer service they said they needed to verify that the debit card account is infact mine. But since this is a debit card, I could provide the checking statement that has the Skrill transaction and my name as the account holder. Once that is done, I called the customer service to confirm, they verified the page number and transaction id and escalated. Now I am again able to do tranfer money. It was a hassle, but one good thing is their customer service is good and they are always patient and tried to help and not shun me off. That plus great rates deserves one more star.

Very hard to verify account. I have provided DL, Passport, SSN, utility bill, Bank statements etc. and still they didn't approve.

Posted on December 21, 2020 05:00 am

Pathetic Customer Service, Baseless security verification. You will encounter more failed transactions than successful ones. Random masking rule for verifying your debit/credit card. THEY WANT TO VERIFY YOUR DEBIT/CREDIT CARD STATEMENT AS WELL. Mostly they will restrict your account right away and ask for a debit card statement. Almost all US banks do not provide only (masked) debit card statements as it is attached to your checking account and if you do not use your debit card it won’t reflect on your bank account statement. SKRILL DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THIS AND IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE THIS THEN YOUR ACCOUNT REMAINS IN RESTRICTED STATE AND THEY WILL TERMINATE ACCOUNT STATING - “” We are sorry to inform you that during a recent audit of your Skrill account we found reasonable grounds to discontinue our business relationship. Therefore your account is now closed. Please note that this decision is final.”” Further, they won’t entertain you at all even you lose your money. I spend 7-10 days just to get my account verified and only email back and forth. Then I hear my account is terminated without any valid reasons. It's really disappointing and frustrating to understand why can't they provide clear instructions and feedback about all documents you need in one go rather than a back and forth. They keep restricting your account and demanding the same documents again and again. Again There is no consistency and transparency in customer support just push back with random responses. Rather than solving the issue, they prefer terminating the account. Wow, what a customer care!
