How do I deposit with Rapid Transfer?

Rapid Transfer allows you to deposit money instantly and securely from your bank account directly to your wallet. You will need to have active online banking.

To make a deposit via Rapid Transfer, follow the quick steps below:

  1. From the Deposit section of your Skrill account select Instant bank transfer.
  2. Enter the Swift code and the IBAN of your bank account and check the disclaimer.

  • You can only complete one Rapid Transfer deposit at a time.

Is it safe to enter my online banking password when making a Rapid Transfer payment?

I did not receive a one-time password / SMS code. Who should I contact?

The one-time password is sent by your bank. Please make sure the mobile phone number you entered in your online banking is correct and try again. If the problem persists, contact your bank.

My registered phone number changed/is not correct. Can you send the code to my new number?

The SMS is sent by your bank. If your registered mobile phone number has changed, you should correct it in your online banking or contact your bank for assistance.

My Rapid Transfer failed. What can I do?

There are several reasons why a Rapid Transfer may fail:

  • You’ve entered wrong bank account information. Double-check your banking details and try again.
  • The name of the bank account does not match the name of your Skrill account. Use only bank accounts registered in your name.
  • Your bank is not supported for Rapid Transfer. Try with a different bank account, or an alternative deposit option.
  • Insufficient funds in the bank account. Try with a different bank account, or an alternative deposit option.
  • Communication or time-out error. Try again later.
  • Too many failed confirmation attempts (OTP). Make sure you enter the correct one-time password. Contact your bank for more information.

My Rapid Transfer is missing. What should I do?

In the rear case you don’t instantly receive the funds, please allow 48 hours for the transaction to settle. If after this timeframe has passed, the funds have neither returned to your bank account, nor reflected in your Skrill wallet, please contact us. We will need a copy of your bank statement or screenshot from your online banking, showing the debited transaction details:

  • your names as account holder
  • your bank account details: account number, sort/bank code
  • the debited transaction details: amount, currency, date and reference (if applicable)
