  4. Hi Emma,
    I have an issue verifying my syke bank mastercard coz the money deducted from my account of which am to confirm was in Naira. I contacted their help desk n i was told it could be activated manually and that i needed to get a debit card statement with my debit card number written on the document of which skye bank does not offer only an account statement could be given to me. i submitted the account statement like that to skrill since Friday last week n up till now my card hasn’t been verified.
    Note: the statement of account reflected the naira equivalent of the cash withdrawn by skrill.
    Pls, Does this represent a problem and what could be done to resolve it?

  5. I appreciate this post. I’m hoping to start earning soon from Freelancer and I would like to use Skrill. I’ve got a few questions for you.
    1. Do I need a dorm account to verify and fund my Skrill account using GTB Mastercard?
    2. Do I need the dorm account to withdraw from Skrill? Can’t I just withdraw directly to my savings account?

    1. Hello CheeBooZoor,
      You don’t nneed Dom account for verifying and funding your Skrill account. However, you may need Dom account for receiving international payment into Skrill account.

      1. Thank you for your reply. Considering the problems in finding current account holders as referees for the dorm account @ GTB, I was wondering if I could just withdraw straight to my main account pending when I create a dorm account. I’m searching frantically for a current account holder.

  6. Whats the commission like (%age) for a regular skrill account if you want to withdraw $50 or even $100 from skrill into your dorm account?

  7. Hello good day,

    I have a few questions and I believe you are in the best position to answers them Sir.

    First, is there anyway to make withdrawals from Nigerian PayPal account to my local bank account without linking my PayPal to a skrill account?

    Secondly, pls kindly guide me on the procedure for linking Nigerian PayPal account to skrill or payoneer account to receive funds.

    Also, I heard that Dom account fees are quite expensive, is there any other bank you can recommend with lower charges? or that doesn’t even require a Dom account to receive payment from either the skrill/payoner account.

    looking forward to a swift response Sir

    thank you.

  8. great post. Just some few questions:

    1) Can I send money to another person outside nigeria from my skrill? if yes what is the max?

    2) any limit of how much i can fund my skrill account from my Naira mastercard or savings account with GTB?


    1. Can I send money to another person outside Nigeria from Skril account? Yes.
      What is the max? it depends if it is verified or not verified. Wait bit; did you register your skrill account through us?

      1. ok, because i tried funding my skrill account and its asking me for neteller user name and id… please explain what it means, thank you sir.

        1. Hello Abiola,
          You can fund your Skrill account with your neteller account ( that is, if you have one) but you can choose to fund it through other means like using your GTBank Mastercard, AMEX, JCB, Diners, Maestro, Paysafecard etc.

    1. Hello Mohammad Musa,
      We are sorry for the late response!
      For now, It is only GTBank mastercard; that has work fine when using it to verify and fund skrill account. I don’t know of any other bank that work. There is harm in trial, you can try FCMB.
      You don’t need to go to bank to do verification. Skrill doesn’t have any Master Card. Help us, Lets help you…register or sigh up for your skrill account through our SKrill partnership link

  15. Good morning,
    Your information’s above are so helpful, but have not register for skrill yet. My questions are Can I found skrill account with Heritage MasterCard or Ecobank debit card because I have both on Naira denomination.
    All the procedure involved on how to register and verify my account.

    1. Hello Osas,
      The ONLY Naira mastercard that I know that work for now is GTBank Naira mastercard. Howover, I will suggest you try Heritage MasterCard or Ecobank debit card. If you are registering for skrill account, I will appeal that you register through our SKrill Partner link

  16. Good day,

  17. hi, i tried to deposit funds on my skrill account and after uploading my master card details i was told no upload possible.what does it mean.thanks

  18. Hello Emma,

    I am yet to open Scrill account and will do so through your link. I have my sister living in Canada, We do business together,she sends shoes and bags for me to sell here in nigeria. We have been having trouble because after the goods are sold in naira,converting it to dollar has become a problem with the exchange. I would like to send back the money in dollars so she can buy again. If I open a scrill acct with my naira mastercard, can I deposit the money to her account in canada? Is the exchange that scrill gives from naira to dollar better than black market? Thanks in advance.

  19. Hi Emma,

    I have a personal Skrill account but cannot receive money with it…they company (Empowr) said that my Skrill account rejected the payment, and so they could not send the money to me. Pls what could be the problem?

    Although, I have not added and verified my GTbank account and my Naira master card, nor uploaded any thing to my Skrill account, pls could this be the problem?


      1. Pls Emma,

        Do you have any idea what they need to do before they can send me money on Skrill?
        I ask this so that I can know what to advise them, they just told me that they have try it again but it still reject it…I’ve been battling how to get this money since last April.
        I’ll really appreciate your help.

  20. Hello Emma,
    I’m trying to open a Skrll account via your link. Please, I need GTB swift code to complete my Bank Detail Verification Stage. Thank you greatly.

  21. Hi Emeka,
    I signed up for skrill through your link, and on my dashboard is the bold notice saying, “Please be aware that we no longer accept bank-wire deposits or facilitate bank-wire withdrawals in US dollars.”

    Does this not defeat everything you have said so far about receiving money into domiciliary account, especially if we have the money in a Payoneer account etc?

    1. Hello Tola,
      You can fund your skrill account from GTbank Naira MasterCard. What you see written boldly is, “Please be aware that we no longer accept bank-wire deposits or facilitate bank-wire withdrawals in US dollars.” I don’t understand your argument.

  22. I have a Dom account with stealing bank can I Link both accounts? Can I also make payment to someone without having a skrill account? How long does it take to open a skrill account?

  23. Hello I opened a skrill account for funding my bet365 account but tried verifying it with first bank MasterCard but to no avail, so please give me a break down wat I need to fund my bet365 account and also withdraw wen d time comes.

  24. Good evening Emma. I want to register. Please help me with this. If I fund my skrill account with gtbank naira debit Mastercard, can I withdraw my money back to my Gtbank savings account? What is the fees? I actually want to use it for sport betting. Will bookmakers like bet365 require me more verification if I fund my account through skrill? Will bet365 require me to have a Dom acct before I can withdraw my winnings back to my skrill account? Thanks

  25. Your post was extremely helpful. I am not sure GTB is into currency exchange. So when uploding funds into one’s skrill account, who does the conversion, skrill or GTB? Thank you very much for this post.

  26. I’ve tried all the phone numbers you have on your site, none are going through. Please I need an active line to call or you can call me; 08029278009…I have a question about your skrill link, please get back to me asap

  27. I just opened a skrill account and I’ve verified my gtb mastercard, but it keeps telling me transaction declined whenever I try to fund the account with my gtb MasterCard
