Sports Betting Guide
Skrill is an e-commerce service that enables safe, easy and fast online money transactions. Skrill is considered to be one of the most popular e-wallet services in the world. The service is also very popular among sport punters.
What is Skrill?
To put it simply, Skrill is an e-wallet that has all the functions of a traditional banking account. A free Skrill account enables storage of the funds, payments for both online and regular purchases as well as any type of services. The company was established in 2001 in United Kingdom as ‘Moneybookers’. In 2010 it rebrands for its current name, Skrill. At this moment, the company has over 40 million customers. The money transfers between the punters and the online bookmakers and the other way around are a large percentage of all transactions done with the usage of Skrill.

Withdrawal of funds from Skrill
When it comes to Skrill, we can withdraw our funds at any time we want. The most popular ways of withdrawing our money from our Skrill account are:
Skrill Visa Card - very similarly to the regular Visa Card, we can pay for any services and purchases with this card both online and in traditional shops. Operational costs are €10 (£8,65) a year. It also enables fast withdrawal of our funds which each time costs €3.95 (£3,41).
Bank transfer - a little more time-consuming and expensive option. Each time we need to pay €5.50 (£4.75) and wait between 3 to 10 working days for the transfer to be completed.
How to contact the Skrill support?
The Customer Support of the Skrill will gladly answer all your questions and help you with any problems. It is very simple to contact them. All we have to do is click the MENU in the right upper corner and pick the HELP from the list. After that, we are redirected to a page with a search toolbar and a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). It is worth saying that if we still did not find an answer to our problem, we can type in: ‘contact us’ in the search toolbar. This will open up a window with all contact numbers for different countries as well as a contact form.
