    Hello, when I was trying to make a withdrawal from skrill to my com bank account, it was not successful and reason says the bank has rejected the transaction. Do u know y it is? do I need to check with the bank?

    • Prathilaba says:

      Hi,

      Make sure the name on your skrill account tally’s with your account name on com bank account. Also double chk the swift code and account numbers and other relevant details ( if details are wrong or name difference exists, you won’t receive the funds until it is solved ). If all good, try a withdrawal once again ( Generally you will receive funds within 2 hrs to 3 days). If it still fails. contact the skrill support as they will highlight the exact problem.
