Skrill, formerly known as Moneybookers, is an e-commerce business that allows customers to buy securely on the Internet using direct online transfers from their bank account. There are two different kinds of users: individual and merchant users. To individuals it serves as an online deposit account and a low-cost, internet-based alternative to traditional money transfer methods such as cheques, money orders and wire transfers. On the other hand to merchants, Moneybookers allows accepting online payments made with major payment cards, like VISA or Mastercard, or Moneybookers' own online accounts.
Currently the service has around 25 million customers, including 120,000 merchant accounts being its payment gateway integrated by a number of global online brands such as Facebook, Skype and eBay. It is usually considered as a cost-effective alternative to PayPal. The merchant fees of both services are similar but often merchants choose Skrill because it is available in more countries/currencies and the possibility to use local payments, especially in Germany (Giropay), Poland or Netherlands (iDeal).
