Skrill began as the Moneybookers electronic wallet in 2001. When the company expanded and modernised its business, the name of the electronic wallet was changed to Skrill, which is a slang term for money. Despite the change in name it is still listed as Moneybookers in a few online casinos. After going through some ownership changes, Skrill was acquired late in 2015 by Paysafe, the company that also owns the rival electronic wallet NETELLER. As of now both electronic wallets retain their individual identities and compete in the same online gaming market. Skrill is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. It operates in over 200 countries including Nigeria.
Skrill has been at the forefront of payment technology since becoming the UK’s first authorised e-money issuer in 2001. The Skrill Group, which includes Skrill, Paysafecard, Payolution and Ukash, now operates in nearly 200 countries. Every year it processes over 150 million online transactions with a combined value of nearly €13 billion.
