Skrill VIP help and FAQs
To become a Skrill VIP you must simply use your Skrill wallet for transfers to merchants or for buying or selling Crypto*. The minimum amount to be transacted is of €15.000 (or the equivalent in your chosen currency) for a quarterly period.
Quarterly means the following three-month period in any calendar year.
- Quarter 1: 1 January – 31 March;
- Quarter 2: 1 April – 30 June;
- Quarter 3: 1 July – 30 September;
- Quarter 4: 1 October – 31 December.
The day after you reach the minimum transfer criteria, your account will automatically become a Skrill VIP account. You are then guaranteed the VIP status for the rest of that quarter and the following quarter.
*The service is currently available in selected countries only. If you see Crypto section in your Skrill Account, the service is available for you.
To maintain your VIP Status or to reach a higher VIP level you must transact a certain amount to merchants or to buy or sell Crypto within the quarter.
For example, if you become a VIP on 1st of February, you are guaranteed to keep the VIP level status for March and Quarter 2 (April, May and June).
However, if you do not make the minimum amount of transactions in Quarter 2, you will lose your VIP status at the end of Quarter 2 (30th of June).
The VIP Status levels are reviewed and adjusted at the end of each calendar quarter.
