In this article, we’ll show you how to verify your Skrill account, step by step.
Account verification is mandatory if you want to use Skrill in full-feature mode. If you prefer not to verify your account, you can still make transactions, but the amounts are limited.
The verification process is split into two:
I. Completing the registration;
II. Making the first deposit in order to verify your identity;
These can’t go one without the other. Verifying your identity is not available until you make your first transaction.
