What Skrill Cardholders say...

  • Been using them for some time now and I've been pretty happy with the transaction process thus far. Some ecommerce store only accept them instead of Paypal especially stores from the Asia region. Verification can take some time but since it's for our own protection, I guess it's acceptable.

    James Darronte

  • Have been using for a month to pay online stores that do not accept paypal. Fairly good security/verification processes leave me feeling confident my finances are secure.

    Mark Hewetson

  • So far it was the best and easiest way for me to make online transactions and payments. I ditched paypal and alertpay, cause there were too much hustle and online policies, which ruined online shopping, at least for me.
