Once completed, the system will show you the confirmation of your documents submitted.
How to verify location
The final step is to verify the address. There are 2 ways:
(1) Geolocation: Turn on the location of the browser so that Skrill automatically locates you on Google Map. It’s very quick. But you must be using the computer/laptop near the address where you registered your account.
(2) Upload Address Document: You take photos of any documents with your full name and address that were registered for the account within the past 90 days. Examples are utility bills, bank statements, etc.
Verify the address with Geolocation
Because the second way is quite troublesome if you are not the landlord, you should use the 1st way. Click on the Geolocation. The browser will automatically display a notification in the upper left corner. Choose Allow to complete.
But if the browser does not automatically show this notification, follow these steps:
(1): Click on the Lock in the upper left corner of the browser.
(2): Click on the Block.
(3): Select Allow.
(4): At this time the browser will display a message asking Reload to adjust to take effect. Click Reload.
(5): Select the Geolocation again. The system will automatically verify your address.
Method 2: Verify the address with Upload Address Document
In case the 1st way cannot be done, you need to find documents with your name and address you registered. How to take and upload the image is similar to when you take and upload ID card/Driver’s license.
Once completed, Skrill will review your account within a few days to verify. If successful, Skrill will send a notification to your email.
