Exclusive Interview with Matt Ott, CEO of Skrill Holdings
Moneybookers, which is part of Skrill Holdings, was founded in 2001 and shortly after the group company was awarded a European e-Money license by the FSA. Back then not many people had a credit card, which is still true today in many countries and various demographics. The idea was that an eWallet enabled those customers to instantly pay online with their balance, funded by their local bank or preferred local payment option in their local currency, rather than waiting 3 to 5 days for a bank transfer to reach the merchant. The company`s focus then was to provide access to as many local payment methods as possible to enable as many customers as possible to go shopping online - irrespective of having a credit card or not.
