Bitches should allow bigger withdrawal limit, not just rise fee on each withdrawal. Their 250 per 2 days is a joke.

Actually, they do allow bigger withdrawals if the account is verified.
However the fx exchange fee is still too high.
At present PayPal seems like a better option for Europe, but I liked to have an alternative option.

I always thought Skrill was cheaper than Paypal (currency exchange fee of 2,5%, no withdrawal fees) but apparently that's not the case.

Funny... that's what I thought as well. Perhaps it was a few years ago? The forthcoming increase in fees is not the first one since I started using Skrill (then Moneybookers).

If I remember well, currency exchange fee with Skrill was 2.49% circa 2012-2014, and even lower before. Withdrawal fee was lower as well.
