Withdraw money Skrill in Thailand

Popular Thai bank Kasikorn used to accept payments from Skrill and everyone was satisfied as long as IBS system was somewhat beneficial for withdrawing money. Due to processing features there was no fee for currency conversion for transactions from Skrill accounts.

However, in the end of October Kasikorn changed its processing method causing problems with transactions from Skrill.

  • First, there appeared a conversion fee;
  • Second, the bank started to decline payments from Skrill.

The above-mentioned caused an increased interest to this issue among multinational diaspora, as Skrill is quite popular amid online poker players and freelancers.

What to do to avoid this?

While planning to go abroad, order Skrill or NETELLER prepaid card in your personal account. Note, that card delivery may take up to 60 days depending on the work of your local post office. You can pay with this card anywhere where Mastercard is accepted or withdraw money at any ATM. By the way, Skrill VIP Silver account owners do not pay fee for ATM withdrawals.

Order a card of your local bank and find out whether it accepts payments from Skrill and/or NETELLER.
