Skrill have recently announced changes to their verification process which you may be required to complete in order to successfully verify your Skrill account.
In the past, a small number of customers who signed up to Skrill were required to upload a selfie to Skrill to prove their identity. Essentially the main change that has been implemented, effective from 3rd April 2019, is that if you were one of those customers who would have previously received the request from Skrill to upload a selfie, you will now need to upload a selfie with a handwritten note with the date and the word ‘Skrill’ on.
Whilst this may seem to you like an unnecessary step to implement, we believe that if the Skrill security team are changing the procedure, there must be a fair reason for the change. And let’s be honest, if you had to upload a selfie of your face anyway then adding a handwritten note to the selfie is not too much trouble to complete.
To make the process easier and to ensure that you can complete it quickly and without ongoing issues we have taken the time to explain in simple terms how this process will work and how to verify your Skrill account and enjoy all the benefits of a verified Skrill account.
Since the changes implemented by Skrill relate solely to verifying your identity, we will explain this in detail below.
Step 1 - Select document to upload - Passport, Driving Licence or Identity Card
Skrill uses technology to automatically verify your address. This is country-specific so may not apply to you but in most cases, this is successful and your address with be automatically verified. However, if this process is unsuccessful or does not apply to your country, you will be required to upload documents to prove your address.
This process is unchanged from the previous Skrill address verification process so you can find more information by referring to our Skrill verification page.
Once your Skrill account is fully verified you will receive email notification that the process is complete.
Please remember that if you register your Skrill account via eWalletBooster you will receive the following benefits:
