Where Skrill USA stands in 2020
Until now, US citizens could not make any gambling deposits. They could use their eWallet balances for Person to Person and e-commerce transfers only.
Nowadays, US users are allowed to send and receive payments to and from other members. As well as customers of the Skrill Limited and Paysafe Group network and specific merchants that are US licensed and have opted in to participate in the Skrill USA network.
Thus, all gambling merchants who have US licenses should be live for transfers already and fully operating on the US market, accepting deposits via the Skrill wallets.
The Skrill VISA Prepaid Card is issued by New York-based Community Federal Savings Bank.
By using the card customers can access their funds from their Skrill digital wallet to make purchases online, in store or and for cash withdrawals at any ATM that offers VISA as payment method.
The bigger names within the industry are Borgata, Caesars, Interactive, 888 Casino and PokerStars.
Please note that deposits to any of these gambling merchant are possible only if you hold a Skrill Inc account.
Skrill US Inc. Licensing
Skrill US Inc is licensed in almost all US States while different rules for each State apply.
Now 46 states have been enabled for the service already in general:
As well as five US dependent territories:
- American Samoa where no license is required.
- Licensing in Guam.
- Licensing in Northern Mariana Islands.
- Licensing in Puerto Rico.
- Licensing in US Virgin Islands.
Skrill Inc Account Pricing
To register a Skrill account is free of charge, but make sure that you login or makes a transaction at least every 12 months.
This is important because if you fail, a fee of 5 USD will be deducted from your account balance every month.
In addition, all deposits options are also free for now. You can use your US-issued credit/debit VISA or MasterCard, bank account held by you at an U.S. bank or other financial US institution, money transfer from another member or a paysafecard pre-paid voucher. When it comes to local deposit options there are not plenty available yet and you can either use ACH or Rapid Transfer which was expanded into the US in partnership with Skrill USA.
US users can also withdraw their funds to their registered bank accounts or whenever sending or receiving funds between Skrill accounts for free.
The Skrill US Affiliate and Skrill VIP program now have been launched too. Any Skrill USA customer is eligible for the Skrill VIP USA Program once 15,000 USD in gambling transfers were done within a quarter. Additionally, the VIP Status will apply for the next Quarter as well.
Skrill VISA USA Card
The Skrill Card was just recently enabled for users of the Skrill Inc entity and US customers can now get free access to the Skrill Card USA and spend their account balances worldwide, wherever VISA ® is accepted as payment method. The only difference in regards to the Skrill Prepaid MasterCard offered to US citizens is the card issuer – VISA replaces MasterCard on the US market.
Also, the Skrill VISA Card is a strong financial solution and convenient payment instrument for US consumers traveling internationally. With VISA accepted in over 200 countries and territories across the world, as well as the product’s ability to support budgeting and manage risk exposure to traditional debit and credit cards, travelers will also benefit from not paying foreign exchange fees to Skrill when using the card.
