Skrill customers traveling to the U.S.
As a non-U.S. Skrill customer you are able to use your Skrill MasterCard in the USA on regular basis, wherever MasterCard is accepted and you will be not forbidden to access your Skrill account either, but please note that transfers to EU gambling merchants would not be possible and your account might get locked if you try to execute such a transfer. Other transfers, such as funding your Skrill accountant Person to Person transactions should be possible with no restrictions.
Please be aware that any breach might lead to a lock of your account and if you intend to spend a longer period in the US then please sign up for an Inc account. Some of our clients were not aware of this and got their account locked. We were able to get their accounts reopened faster again, but it is still taking some time, so please stick to the rule and pay attention.
We also would recommend to let Skrill support now if you plan to travel to avoid any issues with your card or your account. Just send a quick email to [email protected], so that they are aware of this.
Skrill USA Affiliates and Ambassadors
The Skrill USA Affiliate Program offers the same conditions as the Skrill Ltd entity and it is live for US citizens too.
It means that to start referring US accounts you need to be US based account holder and sign up for the Skrill US Affiliate program respectively. You will be not allowed to refer customers from outside of the US.
Unfortunately, this now also applies to us and we are no longer able to offer our benefits for customers based in the United States. However, there are no further restrictions and besides the US we can offer our Skrill Bonus Program with faster VIP upgrades, monthly bonuses and lower fees to customers from all other countries.
