Skrill can be a convenient way to purchase bitcoins but it usually means higher fees.


We like BitPanda because they have a lot of payment options and good fees. They are available to most of Europe!


If you do not live in Europe, VirWox is your best bet. The process is extremely similar to buying bitcoins with paypal. Our guide explains the entire process for everyone to understand. The only difference being you scroll a bit further down the page until you find Skrill! VirWox’s fee structure for Skrill is a flat $.49 for USD transfers and 3.5%. The only difference for EUR and GBP are the flat rates are .29 (GBP) and .39(EUR).
