How to buy Ethereum with Skrill? 

With the Skrill ewallet, clients can buy, sell and swap between different crypto assets. For all verified Skrill users, investing in cryptocurrencies is made simple. Buying and selling are instant within the Skrill wallet. 

Buying Ethereum with Skrill ewallet 


Buying Ethereum (ETH) with your Skrill ewallet is a straightforward action. You need to be a verified Skrill user and have fiat currency on the account, then you can buy Ethereum within seconds directly from Skrill. Skrill crypto service is part of the Skrill ewallet, thus you will not be redirected to any external crypto platform. 

Step 1 - Login to your Skrill account


Once you have logged into your Skrill account, choose the Crypto Service section - the crypto icon appears in the bottom menu. 

All users are advised to read the Skrill Cryptocurrency Terms of Use before making any investments. The Crypto terms define the buying and selling of crypto assets, and define Supported Cryptocurrencies; Skrill offers only a selection of digital coins and the selection can change at the discretion of Skrill. 

Step 2 - Select the cryptocurrency you wish to buy 


In the crypto section of your Skrill account, you will see all digital assets that you can invest in. For the complete list of cryptocurrencies, press the icon SEARCH. This will give you the complete list of supported cryptocurrencies with the current coin price and 24-hour % price change. 

Skrill will always be updating the list of selected digital assets. Currently, it supports the following coins: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), EOS (EOS), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Tezos (XTZ), Ox (ZRX), Chainlink (LNK), and OMG Network (OMG). 

Skrill can change the selection of crypto assets, but it will always have to notify its clients to move the funds or swap them for other coins. 

Step 3 - Purchase Ethereum (ETH) 


Select Ethereum from the crypto listing, and check the price chart. Skrill offers hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly price charts. 

Immediate purchase 


If you want to buy Ethereum instantly, press the BUY button on your mobile screen. 

An Order Form will open, in which you give details of your Ethereum purchase. You will see the exchange rate and the amount of ETH you’ll receive. To complete the order, press continue and CONFIRM the purchase. 
Next, the TRANSACTION SUCCESSFUL should appear.

Other options for buying crypto with Skrill 

If you do not intend to buy Ethereum immediately, Skrill offers several other crypto purchase options.  

Set Ethereum price alert 


If you want to buy Ethereum at a specific price, set a price alarm for ETH by pressing the SET ALARM icon below the Ethereum price chart. Skrill will send you a notification when Ethereum reaches the selected value. 

Conditional Buy and Sell


By selecting CREATING CONDITIONAL and BUY, you will open an order form for an Ehtereum purchase. 

This will enable you to set the price at which you want to buy and the amount of EUR/USD/other you wish to spend on Ethereum. The purchase will be executed once the price conditions are met. 

Set your conditions and CONTINUE. The conditional buy order will be successfully placed. 

Create recurring order for Ethereum


If you want to make regular Ethereum purchases, you can set a recurring order. 

Go to the RECURRING ORDERS icon under the Ethereum price chart. This will open the recurring order form. Set the amount of fiat you wish to invest in Ethereum, frequency, and day in the week, those should be made. Skrill will then make those purchases automatically.
