How can I change the currency of my Skrill account?
Skrill allows you to hold multiple balances in different currencies. Explore your options before making a decision:
- You can add secondary balances in different currencies to your Skrill account. To create a new currency balance in your wallet, visit the Exchange tab (the icon with two arrows at the top right corner in the mobile app) and convert your existing funds to the currency you wish to hold. You can also create a new balance by depositing money in the desired currency .
- If you are a VIP Skrill customer, it may also be possible for you to have multiple accounts in different currencies depending on your VIP level. Find out more about the benefits of becoming a Skrill VIP customer.
If you wish to change the currency of your primary balance, you need to close your current account and register a new one in the desired currency. Please have in mind that this will result in losing access to your transaction history, and your current Skrill card will no longer be active. To start the process, first withdraw/spend your balance. Once the transaction is finalized, you may close your account. This feature is currently not available on the mobile app. Instead, log in to your account from a web browser. Then go to Settings > Account Settings > Account Status > Close Account. Afterwards, create a new account in the desired currency using a new e-mail address.
