    ---- THREAD CLOSED 04/22/2014 ----
    Okay so I received some funds from one of my clients for a project ( $xxx) and I live in India. I tried to withdraw it but it asked to verify the bank first ( $13.00 verification sum sent to bank for $4 commission but lawl I was sending $xxx anyway?)
    Well okay no problem. I went for the verification and it is the 6th day i guess and I am yet to receive the funds in my bank account ( the details are correct. I already receive funds from others using the same).

    Have you ever used this gateway / processor? It would be better if you live in India.

    Hope to have some knowledge from you champions :)

    I've used Skrill for many years since they were Moneybookers.
    They are 100% and wish more people would use them over paypal.

    I just recently used them. I was worried like you and did a lot of research. The one thing that put my mind at ease was I found them on Ebay's list of accepted forms of payment. Hope that helps.

    I am Using skrill for almost 3 years now and its working fine there are some issues with the currency conversion few occasions since when you withdraw the amount it transfers in the form of euro.Sometime it takes around 10-15 days before it shows in your bank sometime its done within a week.

    Its a legit company, but honestly the email support is actually sucks. I was facing a D.O.B issue in my account, the issue was resolved after calling on daily basis at their support number for 26 days.

    I don't live in India - so I cannot comment on that side of it.

    But I have used this company for quite some time and never had a problem - takes 1-2 days for money to hit my account - and I'm using them every month.

    Hope it works out for you.

    Who told paypal's limit is $10K/year? I have withdrawn more than $10K last year. No issues.

    I'm using Skrill for almost 5 years now and never had any kind of problem except some login issues after the transition from Moneybookers, but overall it's a great payment processor.

    Don't worry. Some of the bank from India didn't withdraw money from Paypal. So then Paypal sand you a Cheque.I also facing same problem and they send me a Cheque.

    Skrill (Moneybookers) is 100% legit. Im using this from 2years. Im withdrawing my money to my Bank, there is no problem but it takes 7-10days. My sending/withdraw limit is now 8k per 3 month. Paypal create problem but there is no problem with Skrill.

    One is to have on your account a $10k limit and another thing is to generally saying that PayPal is having a $10k limit. PayPal doesn't have limit regarding the transactions once you're certified.
    About the OP questioning - Skrill (MoneyBookers) are on the market for more than 10 years - I was working with them when I had the gaming websites and was perfect. Now I think that in your case there is a small problem between the Skrill and your Bank Account - you should talk with your bank 1st then make a proper request to their Customer Service (will take a while for response but they will).
