Become a Skrill VIP and Enjoy This Wealth of Benefits
Those of you looking for a way to move money to and from online poker sites and thousands of vendors around the world should look no further than Skrill, one of the word’s leading payment processors.
Not only do Skrill users enjoy an easy-to-use platform that is widely accepted around the world, those Skrill users who use the service regularly enjy a wealth of benefots once they achieve VIP status. These benefits include being able to send money for free, free bank withdrawals, better exchange rates, dedicated VIP care and even a prepaid MasterCard that allows you access to your Skrill balance 24/7 almost anywhere on the planet.
How to Become a Skrill VIP
Becoming a Skrill VIP is much easier than you would think; you simply have to use your Skrill account. VIP statuses are granted every quarter of the year, with the four quarters shown below.
- Quarter 1: January to March
- Quarter 2: April to June
- Quarter 3: July to September
- Quarter 4: October to December
The more you use your Skrill account during a calendar quarter, the better the benefits will be. Once you have made €6,000 worth of transactions in a quarter, you become a Bronze VIP. Increase the value of your quartery transactions to €15,000 and the rewards improve because you will be a Silver VIP.
Some Skrill customers love the service so much that they manage to transact €45,000 in a quarter, giving them Gold VIP status, while the high rollers among us make €90,000 or more worth of transactons in a calendar quarter and become Diamond VIPs, the top tier of this program.
