New Skrill App Benefits Consumers, Retailers (Sept. 9, 2014)
Online payments and digital wallet provider Skrill USA Inc. has launched a mobile app enabling its U.S. customers to manage their digital wallets more conveniently and to send and receive payments, whether they are paying for goods and services or transacting on gaming sites. The app, available on Android and iOS platforms, enables Skrill customers to quickly access their Skrill account by entering a five-digit PIN, eliminating the need to repeatedly enter usernames and passwords, according to the company. The app also promotes customer loyalty by giving merchants insight into their customers’ behavior, supporting custom offers.
Skrill is one of Europe’s largest online payments systems and among the world’s largest independent digital wallet providers with 36 million account holders. It is also parent company of paysafecard.com Wertkarten AG, an Austrian provider of prepaid vouchers that enable consumers to use cash to shop online. Skrill does business in the U.S. as Skrill USA Inc., a registered money service business (MSB) and licensed money transmitter in several states.
