Skrill aims to ‘Knect’ with customers through new reward programme

Mobile wallet solution Skrill, powered by payments platform Paysafe, has announced the launch of a new loyalty-based programme – Skrill Knect.

Skrill Knect provides users the opportunity to earn rewards based on their ability to ‘build and maintain’ connections  when transacting money to friends, family or businesses.

Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access at Paysafe, said: “I’m extremely excited to be able to recognise and reward our customers and do that through the launch of Skrill Knect. 

“From today, all Skrill customers will be able to enjoy exciting, relevant rewards just by using their digital wallet or prepaid Mastercard.”

It has launched in 30 European countries including the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Austria, the Netherlands and Bulgaria. The firm also confirmed plan to launch in all countries where Skrill is available. 

Customers earn points each time they use their wallet or prepaid Mastercard that can be used to exchange for e-money, discounts, gift cards or interests in cryptocurrency via its cryptocurrency service. Further rewards options will be added to the programme in due course. 

Pellegrino added: “Skrill Knect doesn’t just benefit our customers, but our partners too. We’re keen to work with existing and new merchants and brands to deliver the right reward to the right customer at the right time.”
