What crypto services does Skrill offer?
The Skrill Cryptocurrency Service is currently available in selected countries only. If you don’t see a Crypto section in your account, this means you can’t perform crypto transactions
If you are a resident of an eligible country, you can use your Skrill account to:
- Trade crypto
You can buy and sell crypto instantly using your primary Skrill account balance in fiat currency (EUR, USD, etc.), allowing you to hold an interest in a range of cryptocurrencies.
- Set up price alerts
With this functionality you can receive email and push notifications when a desired crypto exchange rate is reached and easily monitor price changes.
- Schedule recurring and limit orders
Such orders are executed automatically offline when a desired crypto exchange rate is reached or on a recurring basis of your choice. This helps you take advantage of price movements and let your crypto portfolio grow regularly through scheduled investments without logging in to your Skrill account.
- Send crypto to other Skrill customers
You can instantly send cryptocurrency to another Skrill customer from any of your available crypto balances.
- Withdraw money to a crypto wallet
This option allows you to withdraw money from your available fiat balance (EUR, USD, etc.) to an external crypto wallet with Bitcoin, Ethereum or USD Coin address.
Note: Having the Skrill app installed on your mobile device will help you easily manage your crypto portfolio anytime, anywhere. The official Skrill app is available for download from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
