Since becoming the first emoney issuer to obtain an electronic money licence from the FSA it’s taken Moneybookers less than a decade to change the world of online payments. With our mix of consumer and business focused solutions we have become one of Europe’s leading digital money companies operating one of the world’s largest independent eWallet platforms on the internet.
In 2007 Investcorp Technology Partners, the technology private equity arm of the international investment group Investcorp, completed a majority buyout of Moneybookers. Investcorp has supported Moneybookers on our remarkable story of accelerated growth since then.
But we have never been a company to stand still, always evolving our solutions to better meet your needs and expectations.
Our next evolution is to rebrand as Skrill, offering you massively enhanced payment facilities.
As more and more of our life moves online, the need for a real-time payments platform that is secure, economical and convenient is crucial. Enabling involvement through simplicity and convenience. Enhancing your digital lifestyle, not restricting it.
Consumers can send payments to anyone without revealing their financial details. There is no need to repeatedly enter card numbers, expiry dates and endless details. Because Skrill stores them securely, there is never any need to share them. Combined with total freedom when funding your account, meaning you can choose credit/debit card or link to your bank.
Skrill understands that all commercial needs are unique and one size does not fit all, so offers more than just a portfolio of products. Whether by a simple integration or a fully tailored solution, local payment options or choice of currencies, Skrill offers access to the global stage. The only standard part of Skrill is that all options are supplied with full technical support, proven anti-fraud measures and reliable customer service.
What Skrill offers is how payments should be. More choice, easy to use, better relevance. However you choose to use it, Skrill delivers.
Skrill is the future of Moneybookers. A rebranding that extends and improves the Moneybookers global payment network even further. Clients will use Skrill however they need. To make payments, receive payments or transfer funds. Securely, to anyone or anywhere, with an email address. Look forward to tomorrow with Skrill.
