Skrill Verification

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.

By verifying your Skrill account, you can conveniently and securely make payments on Baxity Store, which is a reliable supplier of vouchers, prepaid, and gift cards.

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. But we will be here to provide support if you ever need some. If you have received some funds from another Skrill customer and you still have it in your account, your account is considered financed too. So, you don’t have to upload funds anymore.

Alternatively, you don’t have to worry about funding if you register your account via Baxity. With that, you can skip the mandatory pre-funding and start verification right away.

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.

1. ID verification 

This is the phase where you upload additional details of your identity. The step by step ID verification process using a webcam is detailed below:

Step 1: Sign in

As you log into the desktop site you may access the verification page by clicking on the “Settings” tab at the account details drop-down menu.

You will be taken to the  “Settings” page, where you need to choose “Verification” tab and click “Verify now”. Clicking on the button will immediately redirect you to the verification form.

  1. I submit my orgnl bnk statement but i dnt get any reply from skrill in 2day,all my dcmnts are real

    1. Currently, the verification process may take up to 5 days. Although, if you registered using our link, it should not be more than 24-48 hours. Send us your ID if you registered using our link and we will clarify what is going on.

      1. I have seen in the comments mentioned that if someone signs up using the skrill website ,the account may not be verified , why is that?

        1. Brian, thank you for your question! Perhaps our wording was not fully understood. The problem is not that with direct registration on Skrill website the account may not be verified at all. It’s just that direct verification takes longer, from 3 to 5 business days, while using our affiliate link it will take up to 24 hours.

        1. Hello! Thank you for contacting us!
          Skrill directly checks documents. If you have questions regarding the account verification process or questions about documents, we will advise you.

  2. I turned my location and tried verifying from my phone but it’s not recognized by Skrill… it says Skrill does not have access to my phone. I also tried using utility bill but still it’s not verified. My location is Nigeria. What can I do about this?

    1. Dear Prince Samuel, verification by geolocation is available only for SEPA countries. Currently, Nigeria is not one of SEPA members. You can verify your address in Skrill using the following documents:
      1. Utility bill;
      2. Letter from the housing office;
      3. Documents from the bank containing your name, address you provided when registering with Skrill, bank seal.
      The document must be issued not earlier than 90 days ago.
      If the document you submitted meets all the necessary requirements, but it was still not accepted by Skrill, you can try to send this document for verification again. Sometimes the same document is not accepted for the first time.

  3. I’m Emmanuel
    Please I want to use my bank statement to verify my account and my bank is in the place I live at the moment
    I also used the same place I used to register, I hope they will verify me when I submit it

    1. Dear Emmanuel, you can verify your address using a bank statement, but note, please, that the address indicated in your Skrill account and the address in the document (e.x. bank statement) must be equal. If you create Skrill account via our partner’s link, you will get verified rapidly and get VIP statuses in Skrill on our special terms!

  4. what if verifying my location thru phone is not working and i cant even get any documation because of today’s crisis what will i do?

    1. Verification by location usually works correctly only for SEPA countries, unfortunately. If your country isn’t the part of SEPA zone, verification by location won’t work probably and you will have to verify your address using the following documents:
      1. Utility bill;
      2. Letter from the housing office;
      3. Documents from the bank containing your name, address you provided when registering with Skrill, bank seal.

  5. Must I use utility bill to verify my account or is any of the three things you mentioned above

    1. Dear Favour, thank you for your question! You can use any of the documents mentioned above for address verification in Skrill. It’s up to you.

      1. Hello!
        The e-wallet requests a deposit when the client needs to pass account verification. To access account verification, it is enough to make a minimum payment – 3-5 EUR. After the deposit, you will have access to account verification.
        Until the account is verified, the main functionality of the e-wallet will be limited.
        Most likely, having received the transfer, your account limits have been reached.

  6. I submitted my original bank statement since 19 August 2020 trying to verify my skrill account which I registered using your link and today is 21 August 2020 And my account as not been verified yet which I don’t understand why..
    Please I really need your help

    1. Dear Mary, thank you for your feedback! Our clients usually get verified in 24 hours. There are actually can be a lot of reasons why your account hasn’t been verified yet. First possible reason: you created Skrill account via Skrill website directly. Second reason: your documents were rejected by Skrill; in this case, you should find out why the documents were rejected and submit them again. We will try to help you, please contact our support in a live chat on our website.

  7. Hi Team,

    I did the transfer through Skrill, money was deducted but showing as verification is not yet happened. I am living in mexico and Skrill had my Indian address details but country is showing as mexico by app and unable to change it, but remaining address I can able to change. When I upload documents and I’d proof, is was verified of driving licence but address is not verifying , I given my Indian Bank statement and income tax return but still rejecting. Could you please help me, which address location I have to share india or mexico ? If mexico means, mexico bank statement is enough to verify address?

    If this verification not successful, what is next process and when will I get back my money to account?

    1. Dear Sunil Kumar Bolisetti, thank you for your question! If you live in Mexico, you need to verify your current address in Mexico. The address indicated in your Skrill account and the address in your documents must be completely equal. Thus if you entered your Indian address in Skrill account, you can’t verify your address using documents including your current address in Mexico. In this case, you have to contact Skrill support directly to change your address in Skrill account for your Mexican address. After that, you will be able to verify your address in Skrill account.

    1. Dear Mohamed, thank you for your question! Daily limits on account transactions differ for each country and information about them is not particularly disclosed. But you can easily check your limit yourself in personal account.
      To do this, go to the Deposit tab, select the desired method and the desired top up amount. After this you will see the size of the limit at the bottom of the window, beyond which you cannot replenish your account.

      1. Please can I deposit any amount of money in my skrills account as low as two dollar before verification or is there a minimum amount for that sir please assist me.

        1. Obyino, you can deposit quite small amount of money to get access to verification process. But if you sign up for a Skrill account via our special link you don’t have to make a deposit in order to pass verificaion.

  8. I’ve tried verifying my account multiple times with a valid drivers license but every single time they say the verification is unsuccessful 🤦🏽
    I’m not in possession of my ID, if anyone found success in verifying their account with their drivers license, please let me know thanks

    1. Cameron, thank you for your comment! A driver’s license is one of the suitable documents for identity verification. The document can be rejected if only the front or back of the license is provided (you need to upload a photo of the license from both sides), the drivers license have already expired, or if the photo rules are not followed. I remind you that the photo should be clear, readable, not contain glare, and all 4 corners of the document should be in the frame, without cropping.

  9. Hello, Can i use any Bank Documents that contains my name/Address to verify my address, And can i use Drivers license as well for address verification as well?

    1. Someone, thank you for your question! A driver’s license is not suitable for verifying your address. Any official document from the bank will be suitable for address verification if it is issued less than 3 months ago, contains your full name and address specified by you during registration, and also has a bank employee signature or a stamp.

  10. I have been trying for days to verify my account and it will not verify. I have did my ID and both my bank account statements. What is going on?

    1. Amber, thank you for your question! During address verification, users often encounter the problem of document mismatch. Here are some rules:

      – the bank statement must include the full name and address of the account holder. They must match those that were specified during registration in Skrill
      – the document must be dated no later than 3 months ago
      – the document must be signed by a bank representative or have a seal
      – you must not send an electronic statement in pdf or doc format. For the statement to be accepted, it must be printed on A4 sheet and photographed so that all corners of the sheet are visible, and the information itself is clear.

      You can send us a copy of the document at and we will check the document for correctness

  11. I am in Nigeria, I submitted the national ID issued in our country and it wasn’t accepted and I don’t have the other. Id documents.. what should I do, is it possible to take back my funds there?

    1. Goodluck, thank you for your comment! To make a withdrawal from your account in Skrill you need to verify your account firstly. In order to solve your problem you should contact direct Skrill support and explain them your situation in details.

      Skrill support:
      International phone: +44 203 308 2520, +44 203 514 5562
      Or email or if you are VIP –

      It is cheaper to call from Skype – 2,3 cent/min

  12. I updated my address later. My address on the bank statement and skrill matched. But still, they are rejecting my documents. Can I upload the school enrollment letter to skrill for my address verification.

    1. Sohan, thank you for your question, and we are sorry that you had to wait so long for an answer.

      Usually, a bank statement is the most win-win option for an address document, perhaps you do not have a seal or signature of a bank employee on the document. In any case, if the statement did not work – rely on the list of documents from the drop-down list in the Skrill verification section.

  13. Hello, what is the minimum and maximum for the first Skrill account without verification ? and is it possible to enter more than two currencies for an account without verification?
    thank you^ ^

    1. Yasmine, thank you for your question! There is no minimum amount for Skrill account, but unverified users can make in total operations on sum of 250$ before they are required to verify the account. You can also make an account multicurrency even before verification.

      But, we always recommend users verify their account first, and only after that make any operations on more than $5

      1. Hello ,can i use skrill without the deposit verification ? and Does Skrill accept a school document with the full address and printed, meaning the signature is printed and the round mark of the institute is not printed.
        thank you:)

        1. Yasmine,we are very sorry for a long answer here, lost your comment.

          As I wrote you in our online chat, we do not recommend our clients to start using account before all stages of verification process. As for the document, yes, they should accept it. The address document must be no older than three months, contain your full name and address that match the information you provided during registration.

        1. Willie, there can be different reasons why your document was rejected, for instance, pood quality of photos, document is expired, document isn’t fully visible on the photo, your dateils on the document aren’t equal to the details enetered in your Skrill account etc. You can try to upload another document.

    2. Hello, Please can I request for refund on Skrill because the verification process for Nigeria is very difficult and my fund is hanging there, please I need help

  14. How much time it takes to verify??
    I submitted a request of verification for more than 2 days ago. But not got any reply…

    1. Hafeez, if you sign up for a Skrill account right throgh Skrill website (not our special link), verification can take more than 2 days. It depends on Skrill directly.
