Why do you need an Intermediary like Wise?


When Skrill does not support a particular bank for withdrawals, users may feel frustrated and unsure how to access their funds. This is where an intermediary service like Wise can be helpful. Wise provides a fast, secure, and affordable way to transfer money between accounts, and it supports a wide range of currencies and countries.

Step-by-Step Guide to Withdrawing from Skrill to Bidvest Bank


  1. When withdrawing cash on Skrill, check for Bidvest Bank on Skrill's Approved List. Skrill's list of approved banks changes frequently, so checking if Bidvest Bank is currently supported is essential. If it is not yet listed, you won't be able to withdraw funds directly from Skrill to your Bidvest Bank account; you will need an intermediary like Wise.

  2. Set up a Wise Account (wise.com). Wise, formerly known as TransferWise, is a trusted and affordable international money transfer service that can act as an intermediary for users looking to withdraw from Skrill to Bidvest Bank.

  3. To set up a Wise account, you must provide basic personal information and verify your identity.

  4. Transfer Funds from Skrill to Wise. Once the Wise account is set up, users can transfer their Skrill funds to their Wise account. Skrill fees apply for this transfer, so check the current rates before proceeding.

  5. Transfer Funds from Wise to Bidvest Bank. After the Skrill funds have been transferred to the Wise account, you can initiate a transfer to your Bidvest Bank account. Wise offers competitive exchange rates and low fees for international money transfers, making it a cost-effective option for withdrawing funds from Skrill.

Additional Requirements or Restrictions


When withdrawing funds from Skrill, there may be additional requirements or restrictions that you need to be aware of. For example, Skrill may have minimum or maximum withdrawal amounts, or your bank may have specific requirements for incoming transfers. Do your research and ensure you comply with any relevant rules or regulations.


In conclusion, while Skrill does not currently support withdrawals to the Bank, there are alternative methods you can use to access your funds.
