    Dishonest money transfer merchant. They will hold your money for a much longer than advertisement period to get it transferred. Meanwhile they use your money for their own purpose. Messaging their helpline will not help as they will tell you they have no idea what is going on. Use them at your own risk.

      Three days ago, I sent mail to Skrill to apply for the business account, but still no feedback. Does anyone know how can I get a bussiness account to use?

        Hi Mumudan,

        You might want to try reaching out to them via the contact info we’ve provided within the review here. If you haven’t made up your mind yet, I’d also suggest checking out Paypal, Stripe or possibly Square. Best of luck!

          I have been using Skrill for 18 months. Excellent support and absolutely no issue. Far lower costs than Paypal and support is fast and via Skype if need be. I only give 4 stars as my customers in Japan and some other countries unable to use Skrill for payments.

          I am alarmed with by my fund transfer from IQoption to Skrill because until now I can’t track my money although Skrill has emailedme last March 9 that they will rewire my money back to my credit card but until now I can’t see it reflected there on my statement. And when I go to their website it so hard to get help. I am worried because i missed payment for my credit card. It’s more than a month now. I went to my bank but they have no control on Skrill yet Skrill has already been paid for my fee which is 1.62USD one month ahead. Somebody please help me. Thank you.

            Hi Gert,

            I’m sorry for your situation. I’d suggest getting in touch with Skrill directly. Here is a link to their BBB profile, that contains some additional contact info as well. I hope that helps! Best of luck to you!

              Skrill is a company trying to turn out to be a serious transmission company, it can work but it’s a lottery. Sooner or later, there will be a problem and then you will not get help as a customer.Bring over $ 2500 this money disappeared like in a dark hole when I conducted a banking operation to them. In the last month, the suspects have not solved this. Do not know if it will be solved either. They ask for proof of the transfer that I sent to them, this proof comes from my bank with then refuses to accept this. It feels like talking to the bank mafia, and you must try to prove to the mafia that you are right, but they are both judges and prosecutors, and they do not light on you at all. That is, impossible to solve any problems. So if you do not want to lose any money, use some serious payment service instead.

                I’m in the US and have used Skrill for a year for offshore forex trading. So far everything has been fine.

                  Avoid Skrill at all cost!! I made the mistake by doing my business’ payroll to overseas employees through skrill, and even though their website is slow and hard to use that was tolerable but when they froze my account I couldn’t transfer or withdraw any money and the message read “Get in touch with us” (the least you can do is put a phone number if you really want me to get in touch with you), when I got in touch the lady there told me that they are doing a routine security check (no previous notice or anything to let me know that I won’t be able to use the account) and that the security department is unreachable and they’ll contact me when the check is finished which might take days (well then why are you asking me to get in touch?) . She kept interrupting me whenever I asked for a reason on why it was frozen in the first place and she wouldn’t give me any dates.I had to call three times in a week to get the account unfrozen and withdraw my funds, by far one of the worst customer services I have ever seen and I still have no idea why they froze the account other than a “routine check”.A fucking joke not a company. DONT use them for anything business related!
