We know buying cryptocurrencies can sometimes become a frustrating experience, especially when you get to jump through many hoops just to make a simple purchase. For some, it can take days to get their wallet account verified, let alone actually buy some Bitcoin or any other coin.

But, since we have teamed up with Skrill wallet, we can offer a unique solution that greatly simplifies the flow of buying digital assets.

What is Skrill?

For those who have never heard about Skrill before, it is one of the most popular wallets worldwide enabling instant money transfers.

In fact, Skrill was one of the first wallets to offer instant and secure transfers between accounts, whether local or cross-border, using only an email address. For this reason, thousands of merchants also started accepting Skrill as a payment method.

The integration with CoinGate allows Skrill users to exchange funds in their wallet into Bitcoin, Litecoin, and several other cryptocurrencies with just a few clicks. After instant payment confirmation, users will be credited to their wallet address within 24 hours, but typically much quicker.

No registration, no accounts needed

For Skrill wallet users, there is no need to create an account with CoinGate and pass lengthy approval procedures to buy Bitcoin. Because they are already verified on Skrill, users can use CoinGate for purchasing and transferring cryptocurrencies instantly, without any additional steps.

However, if you would choose to sign up, you would get to enjoy some additional benefits. For example, you would be able to track your orders, see history of transactions in your account, and receive notifications about new or upcoming promotions.
