Moneybookers is updating itself – not in terms of service but in terms of designing and branding. I do hope this step will refresh the moneybookers as a brand and give a new life to one of the excellent online payment gateway.
I personally believe that moneybookers is one of the easiest of payment gateways with less formalities and less technicalities.
Refreshment Was Due
The new design of moneybookers looks more soothing and refreshing. The new brand name which moneybookers is opting for is “Skrill”.
As informed by moneybookers, they are just changing their branding and design – rest all features will be as it is. Though you will see some design changes happening from this right moment – but for the time being moneybookers will continue on their moneybookers.com url – they will shift their complete operations to new url in summer 2012.
The new URL of moneybookers will be www.Skrill.com
As we found
You must have this question in your mind that what is the meaning of the word “Skrill”. As per our research we found that word – “Skrill” has evolved from the word “Skrilla” – a slang word, basically used for: Money
Moneybookers will have their brand new facebook fan page- their new twitter account with their new branding “Skrill”. Looking forward to the new future of moneybookers.
I read on the webmaster forum that moneybookers is issuing master card prepaid card, so that users could easily withdraw the money and take the cash from any ATM around the world.
I have to confirm from moneybookers that it is true or not but the source of the news is very much of believe. This will be a revolutionary step with any payment processor, as this will make the process very easy for the general user.
On the other hand, as the moneybookers policy is to take verification documents for once only this also makes this payment processor more attractive. Also, with a recent addon on to the ebay marketplace the moneybookers has cross the major barrier and the success is just waiting for them.
I have been using moneybookers for a while now and I have to say the support staff is very-very cooperative and treat you as premium user every time a support question is asked and also they reply quickly.
When it comes to PayPal sure it is one of the oldest payment processor, trusted and most used. But there are lots of minus points with PayPal. I think majority of success that PayPal has had in all these years is because of ebay, and because of this PayPal has many signups.
But surely PayPal has to geared up the process if they have to serve their users better, they have to introduce some user-friendly policy and some friendly and non-disputed terms, which make them popular and users don’t switch.
