Sending money overseas has become easier and cheaper in the United States since we extended our zero-fee remittance service – Skrill Money Transfer.

Continuing a recent expansion of services in North America, Skrill’s digital wallet can now be used to send money from a bank account or card to a bank account overseas – for free.

U.S. customers can now make international money transfers to 18 different countries, including Mexico and India, with more to follow.

For those keen to provide financial support to friends and family abroad, transferring funds couldn’t be simpler.

First launched in Europe in 2018, Skrill Money Transfer can from this summer be used by new and existing customers in the U.S. Given concerns about COVID-19 and its potential impact overseas, there has, perhaps, never been a greater need for such a service.

Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Skrill, said: “There has never been a more important time for remittance services and we’re proud to bring Skrill Money Transfer to U.S. consumers, who send more money overseas to friends and family than anyone else in the world. New Americans and expats with connections overseas will be able to send their loved ones much-needed help. Together, we’re always stronger.”

Setting up a Skrill account is free, and there is no transfer fee when using Skrill Money Transfer to send money internationally. You can use a personal bank account or a debit or credit card to fund transfers using this service.

For emigrants and expats, Skrill Money Transfer will provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional money transfer options.
