Everything you should know about Skrill VIP Program

Skrill has been a highly regarded eWallet for almost 20 years. It’s known to offer a reliable and secure service for its customers worldwide. Especially in the gaming world Skrill has proven to be popular with players and industry alike.

Most people get by just fine with a standard Skrill account. But for many it will make sense to look at the benefits for becoming a Skrill VIP.

Reasons for becoming a Skrill VIP

For loyal and regular customers Skrill is offering a VIP program. The more you use the service and the higher the amounts are that you transfer the bigger and better become your benefits.

Here are some examples:

  • Exclusivity: Priority bank uploads and higher limits on transactions.
  • Protection: “100% money back” guarantee offers complete fraud protection with a Skrill security token
  • Support: 24/7 support access for VIPs. Gold and Diamond members also have a personal account manager.
  • Reduced Fees: With a standard Skrill account you are often charged fees, for withdrawals for example. When you are part of the Skrill VIP program you’ll enjoy reduced fees for your transactions.
  • Skrill MasterCard: As a Skrill VIP you can order the free Skrill MasterCard

Skrill VIP Level Benefits

The program has four different VIP status levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond. These depend on the amount of money you transfer to poker sites or other online vendors in the course of a three month period (January-March; April-June; July-September; October-December).

The threshold to becoming a VIP is €6,000 which will earn you the Bronze status. €15,000 is required for Silver, €45,000 for Gold and finally €90,000 for Diamond.

Free Skrill Prepaid MasterCard

The Prepaid MasterCard is available to all Skrill members, but for VIPs it’s free. Non-VIPs will need to pay €10 as an application fee, replacement fee and an annual fee, all of which are being waived for VIP members.

The card can be used to pay for items online and offline. And it can be used just as any other MasterCard to withdraw money from ATMs and access account balances. Silver, Gold and Diamond members don’t even need to pay withdrawal fees and the conversion rates get better, too.

How to become a VIP

In order to become a Skrill VIP member you need to have your account verified. Once you have transferred the minimum amount of €6,000 in a three-month period you will be upgraded (usually a day after).

The information will then be updated in your Skrill account and a “VIP” will indicate your upgrade and you will receive a confirmation email from Skrill.
