Skrill FREE first transaction removed
« on: January 08, 2019, 11:18:12 PM »

Hey guys,

Skrill removed the free first transaction a few days ago.

This was a good way to bet before it changed.

Now that this is gone, i expect them to lose a lot of clients. And you know how companies like this deal with loss of potential revenue - they start scamming their customers.

I have a friend, who worked with them until recently and as he was leaving, their transitions were just happening - being bought by Blackstone, rebranded under the same umbrella with Neteller etc.

They started racking up different new types of fees recently - added 1 % and above to transactions, that were free before on deposit. Now they applied the 1.45 % tax, as well as removing the free transaction without any notice. The offer to open a new account with a free transaction was actually still up on the website a couple of days after they removed it. Just goes to show how much the new management has changed things and how much they care about their customers.

They used to be a very decent e-wallett.. Now things have become very bad and it's probably going to get worse. Make of it what you want. I chose to withdraw all my money and stop betting through them.

Its like every move they make is to ban smart gamblers. With this particular move it brings damage to all of them who have an open account, hit and run strategy.
I don't like this strategy and those who use it are making damage to all of us.
But what i don't like most is skrill greed.

oh wait, you're seriously talking about the first free transaction when opening an account??? 

for the past few years skrill have evolved from easy-to-use to an absolute nightmare, charging fees every step of the way for everything.  you can't even deposit for free anymore; they make it impossible to use them.   and then you open a thread because you're single first transaction is not free anymore,  wow.

You're right. They've become a very bad company. A lot of the decisions they made were very greedy.

But personally, so far i've been able to go around it. I've had money for a long period of time with them and i didn't need to deposit money (and pay fees for them as well lol).
I was able to go around their other charges as well by having at least one Silver Skrill at a time. Most of the times it would take me more than a month to make it, but it was worth it. No charges on any transfers this way.

But this one is a deal-breaker for me, because i have to give Skrill charges as well. On a 7k withdraw i would have to pay them 100 bucks in fees. It's a very bad deal for a guy like me, who only does value betting. Not to mention, Bet365 limit you at just about any larger bet.

The free transaction was offered by them exactly to attract gamblers before. Old management was way better.

New one never ceases to surprise me. I don't even want to think what will happen after March comes and the new T&C additions kick in, when they will be able to suspend and terminate accounts at will.

My friend registered his account with the banner a few weeks ago, but when he is trying to send money the transaction cost is 1.5%.

No payment was made to other person, only to bookmakers.

Do you know what can be the issue?

We were informed by PaySafe that they no longer offer the free first P2P transaction since Tuesday. This is valid for all affiliates. No early warning was sent out by PaySafe.
We (arbusers) will cover all fees paid by our members for their referred by arbusers skrill accounts, for first P2P transactions until today, Thursday the 14th of February 2019.
Send us a screenshot of the transaction together with the account number and the account (Skrill, Neteller or ecoPayz) where you would like to receive the funds.
Thank you.
