Moneybookers, now rebranding into Skrill, is an online wallet that is quite popular in the gambling and forex industry for its definite advantages – fast transactions, high security, anonymity and overall convenience. The online wallet users can transact in over 200 countries around the world, in 40 different currencies.
Just like PayPal, Moneybookers/Skrill lets you pay without disclosing too much personal data like credit card or bank account details. What's more, you shouldn't worry about the safety of your payments as Moneybookers has pretty high security standards (we're speaking from experience); on top of that, the company's operations are overseen by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in the UK.
Moneybookers accounts can be funded through a number of ways – bank transfer, credit/debit card, etc. but keep in mind that there are fees for sending money to and from your Skrill account. On the plus side, once you have money in your e-wallet, there are usually no fees for depositing these into your forex account.
As you can see below, the list of brokers accepting Moneybookers is quite long, and some run special promotions for customers using this payment method – Skrill deposits are often rewarded with reload bonuses and special perks.
