Why did my PIX deposit fail?

There are several reasons why a PIX deposit may fail:

  • Incorrect CPF number or banking credentials. When you are filling in the details from your personal identification document, make sure there are no dots, accents, or other specific characters.
  • Technical/communication error. Try again later or with an alternative deposit option.
  • PIX has its own policies and procedures, including verification requirements, limits, etc. Get acquainted with their requirements, and make sure you meet them.

My PIX deposit is missing. What should I do?

If after 1 business day, your funds have neither been credited to your Skrill account nor returned to your bank account, contact us to trace the payment. You will be required to show proof of payment, e.g. a screenshot of your online banking, showing:

  • Your names
  • Bank account details
  • Debited transaction details
