General info about Skrill

Skrill is a free online payment method and money transfer service similar to PayPal, but for international transactions. It can be used for personal payments and is an alternative way of accepting payments for merchants. Skrill is not just a convenient way of transferring money worldwide; it's also easy to set up and start using immediately! Once you sign up with them, there are no forms or paperwork to fill out – they verify your account automatically so you can send or receive money immediately. Moreover, they don't charge anything extra when you make a transaction through their website or app. To sum it all up, Skrill is ideal for any Internet user who wants fast access to their funds and transparency on fees. The account setup only takes a few minutes at most (you can do it even faster if you have an email address). You then add whatever information makes sense for your business (debit card number, bank details), and that's all there is to set up your new account! 

Sign up for a new account

If you don't already have a Skrill account, you'll need to sign up for one. To do so, visit the Skrill website and click on Sign Up Now on your screen, enter all of your information as correct as possible; if it says that a first name is required, but you can't figure out which one to put down, try putting correct as per ID. Once you fill out your info and submit it, they will send an email with further instructions; make sure you follow those steps carefully so that you can set up two-factor authentication. Don't worry about having trouble signing up – people often think they made a mistake when filling out forms online (you might not be able to guess someone's last name correctly), but rest assured, everything will work fine. Just move forward with creating an account, even if something doesn't seem right initially.

How to add money to your Skrill account

To add money to your Skrill account, you have many options. You can also transfer money from your bank account. This can take several days depending on your bank and whether it is a weekend or a public holiday. To avoid having money sitting in limbo for too long, consider adding another payment method such as a Credit / Debit Card. After depositing funds into your account via a credit card, for example, request that they be converted into USD/EUR (your choice). This happens within 24 hours and has no additional cost. 

How to withdraw your funds from your Skrill account in Pakistan

The most common reason you would need to withdraw your funds from your Skrill account is to make a payment or transfer money out of that country. Your options for moving money or making payments are limited by where you live and what methods are available there. The way you withdraw money will depend on whether you're making an international withdrawal, but they all have similar procedures. They also have a flat fee attached, so while they do give you more flexibility, they're also more expensive than just using your debit card within your own country.
