And we’re back with another how-to. Today’s topic is a personal favourite of mine – how to make money through Skrill. We’re going to break down all of the most commonly asked questions and provide some guidance so you can get the most out of your Skrill experience. Whether you’re just getting started with Skrill and have super basic questions, or you’re a grizzled Skrill veteran with a specific question, we’ve got you covered.

Today’s Topics Include:

Skrill Sign-Up 101

First things first - let’s talk about Skrill sign-up bonuses and how they work. As you can tell from the topics listed above, people are very keen on two things: earning money through Skrill and getting sign-up or referral bonuses. With that said, it’s time to hop right into things.

Skrill Sign-Up Bonus


Benefits of connecting your Skrill account to VolumeKings

For our first order of business, let’s clarify something.

Skrill itself doesn’t offer any form of sign-up bonus. Rather, you can get various benefits from signing up with Skrill through another service like VolumeKings.

Using a service such as VolumeKings allows you to get bonuses in a number of different ways such as:

  • Earning bonuses based on your Skrill account activity
  • Referring your friends to Skrill allows you to earn 10% of their bonuses
  • Registering as a VolumeKings affiliate and using our affiliate network to make referrals to Skrill.

All of these methods will enable you to benefit from simply being a Skrill user.

Which brings us nicely to our next question.

How Can I Earn Money on Skrill?

While there aren’t very many direct “do X and get Y” types of bonuses through Skrill associated with simply joining, there are still a wide range of the methods in which to earn money.

There are the obvious paths that most people use the platform for in the first place, such as trading forex and gambling, but Skrill also offers its own in-house opportunities.

One such path is Skrill’s VIP programme, which directly rewards users who make consistent use of their platform.


As you can see in the photo above, depending on your level of account, you’ll be charged a decreasing amount in fees for transfers and withdrawals (which add up quite quickly with the amount of money that’s required to be spent for the top-tier levels), have higher (or entirely non-existent) caps on sending and receiving money, and will get a generally better experience.

You’ll also get numerous rewards (when in the highest tier) such as, “Once in a lifetime experience, exclusive tickets to global sporting events, invites to unique tournaments with huge prize pools, and luxury holidays around the world.”

While this doesn’t actively make you money, it does save you quite a bit. And I don’t know about you, but I would always rather hold onto the money I have than earn a tiny bit more in exchange for a bunch of frustrating fees. Add in the opportunity to see your favourite teams duke it out in person, or get a beachfront weekend getaway, and it really seems like a rather simple choice.

How to Earn Money on Skrill: Option 1


When you connect your account to VolumeKings, you’ll not only get an optimized Skrill account with discounted fees, free verification and a fast-track to Silver VIP.

You’ll also earn rewards and bonuses directly from VolumeKings based on your Skrill account activity.

Whenever you make a deposit to an online merchant, you will earn a bonus from VolumeKings.

When you connect Skrill to VolumeKings, all your rewards and bonuses can be easily viewed within your VolumeKings dashboard where you can easily:

  • View your Skrill activity including deposits, transfers and VIP upgrades
  • Payout your bonuses on a daily basis
  • Refer your friends to VolumeKings and if they link their Skrill account to VolumeKings, you will earn 10% of all the Skrill bonuses that your friend receives.

How to Earn Money on Skrill: Option 2


If option 1 doesn’t take your fancy, there is another option.

This will be of special interest in particular to people who are either:

  • Member of a betting group.
  • Member of a Facebook or other social media group related to betting and/or trading.
  • Currently working in the affiliate marketing industry and seeking improved commission terms.
  • Starting out in affiliate marketing and want to begin with the most profitable deals.

We operate an affiliate network and as part of that we are able to offer a Skrill affiliate program where you can make a commission on your referrals to Skrill.

How does it work?

  1. We’ll provide you with Skrill affiliate links
  2. You share the links within your group or network
  3. When someone clicks on your affiliate link and joins Skrill, you’ll earn commission for the lifetime of your referral’s Skrill account.

From within the VolumeKings Affiliate Dashboard, you’ll be able to do the following:

  • Manage all your Skrill referrals and commission
  • Request VIP upgrades for your referrals (a great benefit you can use to attract referrals)
  • Refer sub-affiliates and earn a percentage of the commission they generate.
  • Request daily payouts


Does Skrill Have a Referral Bonus?


And our final question of the day - does Skrill have a referral bonus? The short answer is yes, they do! However, there are a few strings attached and it’s important to note that it is only valid for referring friends to Skrill’s Money Transfer Service*.

*To earn a referral bonus from referring friends to Skrill's regular service, please feel free to contact us to discuss other options.

As always, it’s a good first step to take a peek at the Skrill Money Transfer Refer a Friend Programme Terms and Conditions page, but if you really don’t want to do that, we’ve got you covered.

Here are the important bullet points:

  • Skrill referral bonus is only available for the Skrill Money Transfer Service.
  • Upon using the Skrill Money Transfer Service, you will be provided with a refer-a-friend code. Each time a friend uses that code to make a new account, you and your new Skriller buddy will each receive referral credits.
  • Referral credits can be used in place of your chosen currency during your next eligible transaction.
  • Eligible Transactions require that you and the sender are in different countries, the transaction amount is at least the minimum transfer amount (excluding fees/taxes), and that the transaction goes through successfully.
  • Referral credits cannot be withdrawn or transferred in exchange for cash; they act as a credit for payment in-site.
  • Referral credits must be used within three months of being awarded, after which they will expire.

The photo above will list the most commonly-searched countries and their required minimum transfer amount, the value of the referral credit in that local currency, and the maximum referral credits per transaction. To see the full list, head to the Terms and Conditions page linked at the beginning of this section.


In short, there are quite a few ways to earn money on Skrill - you just need to know how to work the system. Hopefully, this article should have provided some clear guidance on exactly how to do so and earn a bit of extra money for just… doing what you already do.

While Skrill doesn’t offer a sign-up bonus (though they did, at one point), registering with Skrill via VolumeKings will earn you a number of rewards.

You’ll be able to keep hold of your hard-earned money through lower fees on transactions, easily become a Skrill VIP, earn bonuses from your Skrill activity, get referral bonuses when you get friends to sign up and maybe this article has even inspired you to start working as an affiliate marketeer through VolumeKings!
