The History of Skrill

Skrill used to be called Moneybookers, and it was under this name that the company began to offer its services in 2001. It had over 1 million customers by 2005 and two years after that it was purchased by Investcorp Technology Partners for €105.

Moneybookers rebranded itself as Skrill in 2010. It was later bought by Optimal Payments Limited, which at the time owned Skrill’s biggest competitor Neteller. Both these companies and other such payment providers such as Ukash and Paysafecard are now part of the umbrella company the Paysafe Group.
