Skrill – MasterCard

Skrill MasterCard

Skrill Prepaid MasterCard ® is a contactless card, which means that the account balance is requested before any write-off.

The card will be issued and delivered within 2 to 10 business days. Furthermore, for Skrill VIP status holders (Bronze and higher), each feature is entirely free. It costs 10 euros for regular accounts, however.

Each cardholder can choose from the following currency pairs when withdrawing cash from an ATM: EUR, USD, GBP, or PLN. This feature helps you avoid paying a currency conversion fee if the currency on the card and the ATM diverge.

Unfortunately, it can only be issued to the European Economic Area (EEA) inhabitants, so look for choices if your nation isn’t on the list.

Benefits

The card comes with a bunch of benefits;

  • Direct communication is conducted between the card and the Skrill account. Without bank transfers, inspections, or exorbitant commissions, you may have instant and quick access to your Skrill personal account cash. The balance on your Skrill MasterCard is reflected in your Skrill Account Status.
  • The card is directly linked to the user’s Skrill account, and so access is more convenient.
  • Free payment of up to €10 000 is available for Diamond status users.

    Skrill Virtual MasterCard

    Virtual prepaid cards are electronically generated and delivered. You can use it to make a one-time payment or for regular transactions after you have one.

    You must first load the card with funds before you can use it to make a purchase. Once financed, the cards function similarly to a plastic card in that you make a payment by entering the 16-digit card number, security code (CVV), and expiration date.

    It allows you to make online purchases using the funds in your Skrill wallet wherever MasterCard® is accepted. Users can instantly add a virtual card to their wallet and start making payments with their Skrill money.

    Each customer’s first virtual MasterCard is free, and to order one, go to the “Skrill Card” option on the left-hand side of your Skrill Account and select “Add a card.”

    You can have many cards; however, each additional card costs 2.50 EUR on top of the annual service fee of 10 EUR.
