The message email sent reads as follows:

Your account will stay active until 20 April 2021. On this date, your Skrill account will automatically be closed. Until 20 April 2021, you will still be able to transact and withdraw funds from your account, but you will not be able to upload further funds to your account.


To withdraw your funds please go to your account.


We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for using Skrill. If you have any queries, please get in touch with our customer support team


All the best,


The Skrill Team

For those who may have never heard of Skrill, its a payments facilitator that was founded in 2001. It then spread to 120 countries across the globe and allowed customers to trade in 40 currencies. On top of being a wallet it offers cross-border payments via it’s remittance service Skrill Money Transfer.

Another feature of Skrill that made it particularly popular was that it allows customers to buy and sell cryptos. This is a feature that we recently saw PayPal launch not so long ago.

To those familiar with the platform they may have seen this coming because Skrill stopped opening accounts in Zimbabwe some time ago. This might not have at the time been the portend of an eventual exit but I am sure many speculated that it was coming.

Its complete withdrawal from Zimbabwe is unfortunate. And further limits the financial freedom that those who managed to open accounts way back enjoyed.

I am trying to withdraw my funds to my Zimbabwe bank account, but I am getting the error message that my country is not supported when I try to add a Zimbabwe bank account. Has anyone found a way around this? I have not used my Skrill account in a while.
