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 or continue using it without verification. Verifying your account 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. 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. You only have to register your account with our link, and, in this case, you shouldn’t deposit 5 Euro in your account. With that, you need not fund your account for verification.

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. Please remember that you can only verify your account when it is successfully registered.
Just before we begin, you can get the following documents available to fast track your verification process.
Front and back pictures of your ID card (Not necessary, but ensure you have the ID at hand if you don’t have the pictures)
A pen and a note on which you write SKRILL and today’s date (the date you are verifying your account).
Your 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 utility bill must not be older than 90 days.
And just so you know, there are three main phases of verification:
1) ID verification Phase;
2) Address Verification Phase and;
Phase 1. ID verification Phase
This is the phase where you upload additional details of your ID. The step by step ID verification process using a webcam is detailed below:
Start to verify your account by clicking on the prompt that pops at the top of your account when you log in. The notification reads that you need to verify your account so your activities will not be interrupted. Click on the blue link that reads “verify your account” as shown in the picture below or something similar.
You found it, yeah? Awesome!
Then again, you may verify your account by clicking “Settings” in your account. When the webpage opens, check for the verification tab and click on it.
Step 2: Deposit
After clicking on verification, you are prompted to deposit some money into your account if you have not funded your account yet. This stage will be skipped if you register through our link. That is because you are now using a fast-tracked verification flow.
IMPORTANT: This step is skipped for our customers as they use a fast-track verification flow.
Step 3: Verification
You are immediately taken to the next stage if you registered yours through us. If not, you have to fund your account and wait till it is confirmed before moving to this phase. Here, you are prompted to verify with your Facebook account. Click on the “No Thanks” option, which is found right under the big Facebook icon you see on the page. It is marked with a red box in the picture below.
Got that too? Piece of cake!
Step 4: Verifying your account
Having selected “No Thanks’, you are taken to another page where you have a couple of options to pick from. The first option is to download a Skrill App and verify through this app. The other option which is more comfortable and faster is to verify by uploading photos. This section requires you to upload a few pictures, some of which can be snapped with the webcam during verification.
So, select option 2, which allows you to upload pictures, and we continue!
Step 5: Verify with your ID and a handwritten note
Having clicked on the second option, you are required to upload a selfie of you holding a note with the day’s date and “Skrill” written on it. That note should be handwritten, and yes clear. The selfie should be clear as well, so, consider taking the picture in a clear environment with bright light. You would be required to upload the front and back images of your ID too.
Did you do that, right? Amazing!
Step 6: Upload your country
Now, you need to select your country, your means of identification and a couple of other relevant data.
Step 7: Selecting your capture method
After you have successfully selected your country and selected your ID, you are taken to the next phase of verification where you are required to choose how you would like to capture your ID. You will find two options on this webpage.
a. Take a picture directly with your webcam
b. Upload an image from your files.
Step 8: Uploading a selfie with your handwritten note and wallet brand
The next webpage you will be shown is determined by the option you selected at the previous stage. If you choose to take a picture, your webcam will become live, and you would have to hold the handwritten note right in front of the webcam, then click to take the picture. If you choose to upload a file, however, you have probably made the picture earlier, and saved a copy on your computer. Now, you only need to locate that picture and upload it. You should see something like on your computer screen if you are using the webcam.
You need to hoist that handwritten note the same way it was held in the picture above.
Step 9: Allow the system to process your pictures
After uploading your photo, you should see a rotating icon on the page which indicates that your upload is “processing’, please ensure you do not interrupt. Here’s what the page should look like:
If you get to this point, you have completed your ID verification phase, and now, onto the next!
Phase 2: Address Verification Phase
After the computer has successfully uploaded your pictures in the phase where your ID is verified, your webpage automatically advances to the next step: Address verification phase. Immediately, a notification pops on your screen tab, asking you to allow computer access to read your location. In the picture below. A red box indicates the kind of popup you should expect to find on your computer. On the main page, you will have two options to select from as well.
Step 1: Address Verification Option
You are required to select one of the options on the web page. That’s how the computer can read your location. If you opt for option 1, you might have to switch on your site and enable your browser to read the location. We recommend this method since it is much faster and automatic. In case the computer could not access the method however, you should consider option 2, which demands you to upload a location document. This is what you should expect to see when you click on option 2:
Step 2: Selecting your location Document
Once you find the above picture on your computer, you should select the type of document it is immediately. Keep in mind that you must have an address document before selecting option 2.
Step 3. Upload the document and Submit
After you have successfully selected your location document, click on the “upload” button and submit. If you encounter problems at this point too, return to use the first option which enables your computer to read your address automatically. Otherwise, reach our technical team for support.
If your upload is successful, you are immediately propped to the next page where your address upload is confirmed. A page like the one shown below:
Phase 3: Summary
This is the final stage, where the computer confirms your verification. You should look forward to some official notification at this point. You will be navigated to the last page where details of your verification steps are provided. Usually, you would find that your verification is complete, and you can now move to your dashboard. Almost immediately, an email from Skrill will pop in your registered email as well, confirming that you have successfully verified your account.
Congratulations! You have completed the Skrill verification process and ready to play and trade with thousands of amazing merchants!
