How to Use Skrill At a Betting Site

Once the rebranding process is complete, your Moneybookers account will be automatically converted into a Skrill account.
After creating an account at www.moneybookers.com, you’ll need to fund it using one of several methods, such as debit cards, credit cards and bank transfers. Next log on to an online betting site that accepts Moneybookers deposits and visit the Banking or Cashier area. Select Deposit, and choose Moneybookers as your preferred deposit option. You’ll be required to enter your Moneybookers account info, and some online betting sites will redirect you to your Moneybookers account and require you to log in. After filling in the required fields, you may enter your desired deposit amount and submit the deposit request. The funds will instantly be available for real money betting.
