…………………Common Questions ………………….

My Debit / Credit card Payment  got  "Declined" ?

Most local Sri Lankan bank cards no longer works online.


Then get the above transaction details via monthly bank statement that you will receive.   Optionally, if you have online bank facility, you can check that one at the end of the month.  So once you know the exact "amount " in dollars. Go to "Card and Bank Accounts" > "Finish verification" ( This text will show infront of your card attached card ) and enter the exact amount. Now card is verified !

11) Add your bank account

If you wish to receive money from your skrill account to bank account. You will have to attach a bank account. Always withdraw to bank account, when you have $500 or more in Skrill account as withdrawing small amounts will be not worth.  For smaller amounts ezcash ( we will learn about it in next  step ) will be the best option.  So go to "Cards and Bank Accounts" again. Choose"Add Bank Account".

The main account that you will get is "Classic" in Ez cash service offered by Dialog. You can keep upto Rs 10,000 in the mobile wallet. If you need a higher account with upto Rs 25,000 limit, you will have to visit dialog office to request it.

Sometime it can get delayed to a maximum of half an hour. You can withdraw upto Rs 10,000 per 24 hours to your ezcash account. Always check the balance too in ezcash account as you cannot keep more than Rs 10,000 in your mobile wallet ).  ( Using "Deposit" button you can add funds to your skrill account by card, bitcoin or neteller )  So let's try ezcash method first.

Skrill to Bank Account

Just like before, choose "Withdraw"from your dashboard. Choose "Bank Transfer". Mention the amount you wish to withdraw. Choose "continue". In the next window, you will be able to know exactly how much you will receive to your bank account. Now mention your birthday and choose "withdraw money".Generally you will receive it to your bank account within 2 working days. if any delay arise, the maximum it can take is around 7 working days.

Please Remember :
Skrill account is similer to your bank account. Avoid giving your skrill account password, address, telephone number or PIN number to any other individual. Also avoid using any PIN number given by unknown third party. When you are making a payment to a reputable website only you will have to use email and PIN number. If you need to receive a payment from an individual, give only your email address. Do NOT give any other details ( If you are to receive a payment from a reputable website, you may have to enter the PIN number with your email address )

16) 2 Factor Authentication for higher security ( Optional )

This will increase your accounts safety, If you have funds in your account. It is highly recommended to use 2 factor authentication ( You need a smart phone for this step guys ! ).

a) Download "Google Authenticator " app to your smart mobile phone and install it. Google Play store ( Android)/ Apple app store (iOS).

Then from your Skrill account, go to Settings > 2 factor authentication.. Then click on "Enable" text in front of it

Choose 2factor athentication - Skrill ewallet opening account tutorial in English by Prathilaba

From the next window that you will get,  Scan the "QR Code " ( the square shape large icon )  using the google authenticator app already installed by you.

2factor athentication QR code scanning step - Skrill ewallet opening account tutorial in English by Prathilaba

You will receive some 2FA Recovery Codes. Keep these codes written on a safe place because in case if you loose access to google authenticator , you can use those recovery codes to login temporally to your skrill account.  ( Please note once 2FA is enabled, each time you login or make a payment, You will have to enter the random code from this mobile app )

So we have given you the step by step guideline to opening a skrill account.  So add about $10-$100 and keep this account safely as it will be very helpful for you in receiving funds easily to you.   

17) Limits & Verification

You can go to "Setting"and then choose "Limits & Verification" to learn about your current limits and required verification's. 

Limits & Verification of my account - Skrill ewallet opening account tutorial in English by Prathilaba

You will have no limits to your accounts.   So let's see how this can be done.  Once you get a yellow box in dahsboard like in below photo ( also you will be informed via email by Skrill ), It means that you have to start verifying your account.  Click "verify your account" link in it.

      Make sure the name on your skrill account tally’s with your account name on com bank account.

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.

      Australia is not a supported country by IQ Option. So they may not be accepting that payment source. If you are located in Aussie, use IC Market ( Forex Broker) ( When trading use ctrader so that all the calculations will be done within the system. Check the videos in this page as well )

        Dear Prathilaba,
        Does Pan Asia and HSBC debit’s work?Please I really am In a tight financial position right now…..Besides HSBC is a foreign Bank so does it work?

        And my second question Sir, is that this problem only occurs in terms of depositing money from Local Bank to Skrill ryt?
        I mean withdrawing from Skrill to a/c shouldn’t be a problem right?

        And my last question Sir, if depositing from account to Skrill for Trading doesn’t work, isn’t there any other way at all to deposit money to bank ONLY for Trading??

        Please help me with this as I’m in a really genuine desperate situation right here.

      1) You will need either an overseas bank credit card or need to get dollars from a reliable person ( skrill to skrill transfer ) to your ewallet. Then from ewallet you can deposit to any broker

      2) First withdraw to your ewallet from broker and then from that withdraw to your bank account ( any bank with swift code will work )

      3) You can use any bank with swift code for withdrawals. hsbc,SC, com,hnb, indian bank etc..
