Skrill was initially formed as Moneybookers back in June 2001. The company launched its website moneybookers.com in 2002. It was the pioneer behind the concept of using just an email and password to complete online money transactions and transfers. In 2007 it was bought out by Investcorp Technology Partners. In 2010, Moneybookers began revamping itself and was reborn as Skrill with an even more active campaign to make itself a global company.
Skrill has been ranked as the fastest growing money transfer and merchant account company in the UK and is a market leader in online money services.
