How to Open a Skrill account
Opening a Skrill account as an Indian is easy and straightforward.
To open an account, you go to Skrill.com and click on "Register" in the top-right corner.
Now, you just need to provide simple details such as your name, full address, date of birth and a government-issued identification proof like an Aadhaar card.
Once your general and contact details are entered, Skrill will take some time to verify your credentials to be eligible to make transactions.
Additionally, you may also be asked to provide:
- A colour print of any valid identification card such as your driver's license, passport or others.
- A picture of you holding your identity proof
- A bank statement or a utility bill from the last three months.
Once verified, you will be all set to start sending and receiving money through Skrill, be it wallet transfers or direct transfers to a bank account.
Now it's time to deposit some money into your Skrill account so you can send that money to your betting account!
How to deposit to Skrill
Making a deposit to a betting site is easy with Skrill. For this, you have to add money to your Skrill wallet first and then make a payment to the bookmaker.
When your account has been set up, you are ready to get started.
You can make a deposit to Skrill using any of the following methods:
- Manual bank transfer
- Credit or debit card (Such as VISA or MasterCard)
- UPI (United Payments Interface)
- Bitcoin & Bitcoin Cash
- AstroPay Net Banking
Each deposit method on Skrill comes with a 2.5% deposit fee
Select any of the above-mentioned deposit methods that you wish to use, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete your deposit to Skrill. (This is usually instant).
After your money has reached your Skrill wallet, you will be ready to transfer it to a betting site of your choice.
Deposit on a betting site
Once you have money in your Skrill account it's all smooth sailing from here on. Depositing your Skrill-money on a betting site is very easy.
What you need to do now is go to the betting site of your choice. Assuming you have already opened an account on this betting site, you must click on the deposit page, usually titled "Deposit" or "Banking".
Now you will be presented with a list of different deposit methods, and naturally, you will select Skrill.
After selecting Skrill, you will be asked to type in how much you wish to deposit. When that's done, you will be redirected to another page where you will log in to your Skrill account.
Now, Skrill will ask you to confirm the amount you wish to deposit. Make the confirmation, and voila, your Skrill-money will be transferred instantly to the betting site.
No, depositing with Skrill on a betting site is free in almost every case. There are some betting sites that will ask for a fee to process your Skrill deposit, but we find that a bit over the top, and we don't recommend any such betting sites.
The only fee you will be asked to pay is the 2.5% deposit fee when you transfer money to your Skrill account. This is a fee that you pay directly to Skrill - not to the betting site.

Now that you have money on your betting account, it's time to start placing your bets.
