In 2001, Skrill launched in the United Kingdom as Moneybookers. Since that time, the ownership has changed a few times. In 2007, Investcorp acquired the ewallet company. By 2015, Optimal payments paid 1.1 billion EUR for the firm. Optimal Payments changed its name to Paysafe Group, and also changed the name of Moneybookers to Skrill.
For Skrill users, it's easy to deposit funds into an account. The platform's services are accessible via the official website or mobile app. Available in both Android and iOS, the mobile app requires user to download the application to a smartphone. Prior to sending money, consumers must register to establish an account.
