CoinGate is pleased to launch the option to buy Bitcoin with Skrill. In addition, the new payment method allows purchasing other major cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash and more. Now, you can buy coins to your wallet directly and instantly.
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. Thus, as a cryptocurrency platform, we think it is important to offer a solution that would simplify the whole process. That is why we are excited to announce the integration of Skrill wallet to our platform (by the way, Neteller is coming soon too!).
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 will allow Skrill users to exchange funds in their wallet into Bitcoin, Litecoin and several other cryptocurrencies with just a few clicks. After an 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 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 the need to jump through several hoops.
