How do I set a crypto price alert?
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.
With the Alerts feature, you can receive a notification when the price of a selected cryptocurrency reaches a level you have defined beforehand. Alerts is a useful tool if you’re not constantly watching crypto prices but want to get notified as soon as a coin reaches a specific value.
You can set a price alert in 3 simple steps:
- Visit the Crypto > Market data section and click the Alerts bell icon.
- Enter the price for which you want to receive an alert. You can set it in fiat and for some crypto-currencies in Bitcoin.
- Click on Create alert.

You can also set an alert via the Trade section > Buy/Sell dashboard. Upon selecting a particular currency, a bell icon will appear underneath the calculator.

- Once the set price is reached you will receive an e-mail and/or a mobile app push notification, depending on your notification settings.
- Once an Alert executes, it automatically deactivates. A new Alert should be set if necessary.
- You can review, deactivate, or delete your alerts at any time via the Portfolio or Тrade tab.
You can also set a Limit order to buy or sell a selected cryptocurrency when its price reaches a certain level. It will be completed automatically, so you wouldn't have to lose time to log in and make a trade.
How to enable push notifications?
- Open the Skrill app.
- Navigate to section Profile in the top left corner of your screen.
- Press the Turn on notifications switch.
