Skrill is an online wallet that operates as a third-party money company. It also has an associated app for mobile money management. You have an online account where you may store money, where you may receive money, and where you may send money. You may also be able to pay with your account if the merchant’s checkout accepts Skrill payments.

A nice alternative to PayPal

Skrill is very similar to PayPal. It isn’t as popular, or as safe, nor does it have as many functions, nor is it as widely accepted. However, very few other third-party money companies make a similar boast to PayPal. Even Google Wallet and Apple’s attempts at competing with PayPal are pitiful in comparison. In the Middle East and south Asia, it is actually easier to get an account and this company than it is to get an account with Apple, Google or PayPal, which is why this company is mildly popular. It is especially handy for people who wish to transfer money from a western country to a person in an eastern country and back again.

A fitting alternative of second choice

The app is very easy to use on a mobile device. The layout is set out in a very simple manner, to the point where it is actually easier to use on a Smartphone than the PayPal app is. It takes less than two minutes to set up a transfer and put it through. You may also fund your account the same way you fund your PayPal account. There is no need to pick between this third-party payment company and PayPal. You may have an account with both; you may enjoy an online account with both, and install the app for both payment companies. All you need is an email address and a way to fund your account, such as through a bank. Some people even use Skrill as their temporary bank account while they find a real bank they can trust.
