Okay, but now let's think about how it all works. What does Skrill offer, what do not offer other platforms (except popularity) and what functions we can really use here?
First of all, we should get acquainted with applicable fees. This is true - all deposits for gambling (at least on the Skrill side) are free. Although the other functions of this portfolio are no longer of necessarily. Below are a small table with fees for the most frequently performed by customers.
|Type of activities
||When is charged?
||At each payment, regardless of the method.
||In the case of transactions involving the exchange of currencies, an additional fee will be charged.
||If our account is inactive for 12 months or longer (we do not log in, we do not make transactions), Skrill will start paying a fee equal to EUR 5 for each month of inactivity (counting from 13 months).
||1.45% / free
||No fees If we use the SKRLL cash transfer to send money directly to the bank account.
||In the event of a payment on the VISA card and bank transfer
It is also worth mentioning that Skrill also offers its clients also a prepaid MasterCard card, which is available in four currencies: AUD, EUR, USD, GBP. We can use it exactly the same as from any other MasterCard card and make payments in stores or withdraw money from an ATM. However, it should be noted that ATMs PlanetCash in Australia reject this card.
The issuance of such a card is not free - the company calculates 10 EUR in the form of an annual fee for the possession of a card. We must also count on the fact that withdrawals from ATMs with the SKRill card will also not be free - a fee of 1.75% of the amount paid will be charged here.
One of the minuses of the Skrill portfolio (and at the same time the portfolio of Neteller) is that for some time the casino has ceased to offer bonuses for payments made using the two most popular portfolios. While a few years ago this has been introduced only by several largest bookmaker platforms and casinos, today this is in principle the standard applied by virtually any gambling dirt. Of course, we do not limit us in any way from the later use of these portfolios - only payments that are qualifiers for a given promotion have been covered by this rule. We can use both of these solutions without restrictions to an ordinary casino game.
Customers can also apply for a VIP account in Skrill, which carries a multitude of benefits compared to having a regular account. However, there is one condition that unfortunately not every player is able to meet - within three months we have to make transactions to bookmakers, casinos or other gambling partners of Skrill for at least EUR 6,000.
However, players with the VIP account are entitled to numerous benefits. These are:
- Free payment on their accounts
- A personal adviser (only applies to VIP Gold and Diamond statuses)
- No limits transactions
- Unlimited payments with a banking card
- The ability to run an account in many different currencies (normal users can only only change)
In addition, ordinary players are protected only to EUR 1,000 in the case of Skrill's bankruptcy - regardless of how they have funds in the portfolio. However, this principle does not include players with the VIP account status.
It is also worth to raise the safety aspect here. Sam in himself, Skrill is a very well-protected platform - but it does not protect us in any way, if we make a mistake ourselves. It is necessary to pay attention to the application to register an e-mail address to which we have access only and there is no chance that someone broke at him. If someone falls into possession of our e-mail, then we remain waving to finance gathered in our portfolio.
As mentioned at the beginning of the adventures and minuses of this portfolio, the widespread strategy accepted by cheats is that they send false emails asking for logging in to the wallet using their link, for example, additional verification or checking something. We should always check from whom the e-mail came and preferably log in only by the official main page - not with any links.
Fortunately, Skrill also allows customers also a two-component verification, which significantly increases our security. To do this, go to the Settings tab and then install on your smartphone, Google Authenticator '. In this way, to log in to the Skrill portfolio we will have to provide a special code generated by this application on our phone.
Of course, there is also a classic option to secure our account with a PIN code. However, this is a much less secure method than two-component verification, so if we hold any sums in your wallet that we do not want to lose - it is definitely better to choose this first option.
