Skrill requires users to verify their accounts for security and financial reasons. After successful Skrill registration and confirmed use of your account, you would receive a notification from Skrill to verify your account. This process is pretty easy, and it attracts a lot of benefits. It removes the transaction limit on your account, and it increases the amount you can transact. Another fact, it guarantees account security, and you would face no interruption from Skrill. So, it’s a great idea to verify your account once and for all.
The first requirement for verification is funding. You are required to deposit some funds before your verification is successful. This funds will remain in your account after verification, so, verification does not cost you a penny. It is only mandatory to have some funds in the account. You can upload your funds directly by clicking the Deposit section of your account and following the steps outlined. It is quite easy; you can’t miss it.

The Step-by-Step Process of Skrill Account Verification
Verifying your account is pretty straightforward. You are only required to provide additional information about yourself. Just before we begin, you can get the following documents available to fast track your verification process:
- ID document (ID card, passport or driver’s license)
- Address document (any stamped bank document, court statement, state clearance, or utility bill that has your name and address clearly stated).
Sometimes, if you figured the geographical location on your computer and allowed to define it, it would be enough to confirm your address. But in many cases, Skrill will ask to confirm your address with your documents. Remember, your address document must not be older than 90 days.
