New contactless Skrill Card
The Skrill Card works like every other prepaid MasterCard and is an easy and comfortable way to access your funds by using the Skrill MasterCard without worrying about spending too much money. Your available balance with the prepaid MasterCard is the same as in your Skrill account.
Skrill recently announced that a new card is coming, which will step by step replace all old cards once they expire. Clients without a MasterCard will receive their new contactless Skrill MasterCard from now on.
Below are all details and information about the new Skrill Prepaid MasterCard.
Who is eligible for the new Skrill Card ?
All clients who order a new MasterCard now, or clients with an old card that expire from now on, will receive the new card.
If your card is about to expire and you did not receive any information about a new card yet, please contact Skrill so that they can manually order a new card for you.
What does contactless mean?
The MasterCard Contactless technology makes your purchases quickly, safely and more easy with just a tap of your contactless-enabled MasterCard, wherever you see the universal contactless symbol.
