An International Money Transfer Service
Skrill (skrill.com, moneybookers.com), formerly operating under the name of Moneybookers USA, is an online payment and money transfer service headquartered in New York City and London. Launched in 2008 but originally incorporated in England in 2001, the company functions as a sort of international PayPal-style service for U.S. and European users. This makes it popular among merchants who require multi-currency payment processing. Additionally, Skrill also allows auction payments via eBay and appears to provide merchant accounts.
