The Skrill VIP program is one where you will be rewarded with more transactions you make and the more money you make in those transactions. There are four levels in the VIP program with more benefits the higher the level you are in. The level you start in, for the free to join Skrill VIP program, is Bronze and moving up to Silver, Gold, and Diamond.
A few of the benefits from being in the VIP program include lower fees, enhanced 24/7 customer support, and higher transaction limits. The way the Skrill VIP program works is the more money in transactions you make quarterly the higher level you will be in and therefore the more benefits you will receive.
The quarterly transaction numbers corresponding to the levels in the Skrill VIP program are:
- Bronze – Transact €6000 (10,600 NZD)+ in a quarter (€3000 with EwalletVIP)
- Silver – Transact €15000 (26,500 NZD)+ in a quarter (€5000 with EwalletVIP)
- Gold – Transact €45000 (79,700 NZD)+ in a quarter
- Diamond – Transact €90000 (159.450 NZD)+ in a quarter
In each of the four levels of the Skrill VIP program, you will get enhanced 24/7 customer support. In the Silver, Gold, and Diamond levels you will receive priority bank uploads and +1 multi-currency accounts, +2 multi-currency accounts, and +3 multi-currency accounts, respectively. Also, in the Gold and Diamond level of the program, you will have your very own personal account manager.
The other advantage of being in the Skrill VIP program is the higher level you are in the lower your FX fees will be. Even though Skrill accepts the New Zealand Dollar if you do have to exchange currencies, for example depositing at an online casino that does not accept the NZD, you can get a lower currency exchange rate the higher the level you are in. Normally, the FX rate is 3.99 but for the VIP program it is:
- Bronze – 3.79%
- Silver – 2.89%
- Gold – 2.59%
- Diamond – 1.99%
No matter what you use Skrill for from making online purchases to deposits and withdrawals from online casinos to buying cryptocurrencies to simply transferring money abroad it gives you many advantages in being in the free-to-join Skrill VIP program.
Withdrawing from Skrill to NZ Bank Account
It is simple and fast to make withdrawals from your Skrill account to your New Zealand bank account. It is also simple to top-off your Skrill account using funds from your bank account. However, first things first, as to do these things you will have to verify your bank account. To do this you will have to get the SWIFT code from your new Zealand bank and then send it to Skrill as well as information such as a bank account statement or even a screenshot of the statement.
Once you have verified your New Zealand bank account linking it to Skrill you can make deposits and withdrawals.
To transfer funds from your Skrill account to your New Zealand bank account you will have to:
- Login to your Skrill account.
- Pick your New Zealand bank account as the place you want to the Skrill funds to be sent.
- Choose the amount of money that you want to be sent from Skrill to your New Zealand bank account.
- Confirm the transaction.
When you make a withdrawal from Skrill to your New Zealand bank account there is a fee of 1.75% of the transaction. One of the nice things is that for the withdrawal to a New Zealand bank account is there is no FX fee considering Skrill accepts New Zealand Dollars.
