Common Problems with Skrill Prepaid Mastercard

Despite the fact that Skrill Prepaid Mastercard works similar as any other prepaid cards, there are common problems such as payment rejection or that you wont be able to withdraw the money via ATM. If any of the before-mentioned problems occur, you should check:

  • You have enough balance on your account
  • You are making a purchase of allowed goods and services
  • There isn’t any temporary restriction on your card
If first two conditions are reached, you should contact Skrill support to check why your account has been temporarily frozen.

Temporary restriction or declined transaction is usually made because:

1. The price of goods or services you wish to purchase is greater that your account volume

2. The amount you wish to transfer is greater than your daily limit

3. You reached the daily limit of transactions allowed

4. Your card is not authorized for the ATM or POS where you wish to complete the transaction

5. Your card has been expired

6. Your card has not been activated yet

7. You incorrectly filled the card information via online platform

8. The provider‘s system has temporary outage

9. There is a suspicion of abuse of the card
