Skrill Recognized as Best Online Payment Provider
If you use online payment methods, you are likely familiar with the name Skrill. If not, you’ve certainly heard of its former moniker, Moneybookers. The company has been around for over a decade, offering international online payment solutions to businesses, consumers, affiliates, internet gamers and more. Moneybookers knows all about award ceremonies, having been recognized for its superiority a multitude of times over the years, and that same success its trailing the company under its new name, Skrill.
Last week, the online payment solutions provider was awarded not just one, but two, prestigious awards for its high performance rating, staunch security, ease of use and overall quality. Both awards are related to the company’s services within the online gambling industry, where Skrill dominates throughout many regions of the world.
Just about every online casino, poker room, sportsbook and other gaming division brand accepts Skrill as a viable payment method, both for deposits and withdraws. Due to the online payment processor’s indubitable convenience and low usage fees, it has become one of the most popular methods in the internet gaming industry, not just for online gaming companies and players, but also for affiliates who make their living promoting reputable gambling sites.
On February 4, 2013, Skrill was presented with the most respected award a company of its kind can receive. The ‘Best Payment Solutions Provider Company of the Year’ award was handed to Skrill at the 2013 International Gaming Awards. The ceremony is held annually to recognize the best of the best in the immensely competitive online gaming industry. As the old clichÃ© goes, just to be nominated is truly an honor.
Only four days later, on February 8th, representatives of Skrill were on hand at the iGB Affiliate Awards ceremony, where the company was celebrated with another prestigious title ““ ‘Best Payment System’. The iGB Affiliate awards are also held annually, focusing on the affiliate side of the online gaming industry. Affiliates help to promote different gambling sites, earning their keep for generating traffic. Just like withdrawing winnings from an online casino, affiliates often withdrawal their paychecks via online payment processors like Skrill.
Both the International Gaming Awards and iGB Awards are voted upon by real people who use such services on a regular basis, as well as a team of expert judges. Combining industry knowledge with hands on experience ensures that the most deserving companies are recognized in each and every nominated category.
Skrill has maintained a steadfast goal to continuously renovate its services over the years, and has followed through on that promise since it was first established as Moneybookers in 2001. The company offers one of the widest range of currency options, more than 40 in all, to support international payments.
In January of 2012 Skrill excelled farther into the mobile division with its launch of Skrill 1-Tap. The new application allowed mobile device users to process payments through Skrill with a single tap of their finger, rather than having to enter their login and password information each and every time they wanted to make use of the online payment processor. For those who use Skrill in high volume, it was a much appreciated evolution.
Visitors of the website have observed some incredible renovations to the infrastructure in recent months and the company just finalized the acquisition of PaySafeCard, further extending its services and global reach.
