What Is Skrill Knect & How To Sign Up To Get The Benefits

If you’re new to Skrill, there are a lot of new, seemingly-made up words (spoiler; they are made up – all words are made up) to learn and memorize. Today’s specific word of focus is Knect – what does it mean? Is it even a word? Stay tuned for all of those answers and more, all from the Skrill experts at EwalletUpgrades.

Skrill Knect 101


Let’s start with the super simple stuff, yeah? First things first, we need to define the term of the day. Skrill Knect, for lack of a better explanation, is a loyalty programme based on your use of Skrill.

Starting in the summer of 2020, Skrill users can join the Knect programme for free and be rewarded for using Skrill as they would normally. The only requirements to sign up for the Skrill Knect program are to be an adult of legal age in your country, have a Skrill account in your home country, and have the time to click “join now” when prompted.

Upon signing up for Skrill Knect, members will earn points any time they pay online (including the sale/purchase of cryptocurrency), use their Skrill wallet, Skrill Mastercard/Visa, Skrill virtual card, or withdraw from partners. Users earn one point for every €1 (or your local equivalent) spent, and points can be redeemed for cash once you’ve acquired enough points.

How Do I Sign Up For Skrill Knect?

The sign-up process is incredibly simple. Once you have an account registered and verified (each process is detailed in the relevant previous links), it takes three clicks – seriously.

The process looks like this:

  1. Make and/or log into a verified account
  2. Click the “Join Knect” button in the top right corner of your dashboard (click one)
  3. Agree to the terms and conditions, linked in the “Further Information” subsection below (click two)
  4. Hit the “Continue” button (click three)
  5. Success! You’re a Skrill Knect member now.

The Caveat(s)

Now, nothing in life is totally free. As such, there are a few caveats to the Knect programme’s general guidelines. They are as follows:

Point Limits:

  • You can earn a max of 1,000 points per qualifying transaction (detailed above), with a combined limit of 500,000 points per calendar month.
  • Rounding goes down for points (i.e. €1.01-1.99 = 1 point, anything under €.99 = 0 points)

Point Expiration:

  • Points expire on a fixed date every rolling calendar year after earning the points. (i.e. points earned in February 2021 will expire at midnight GMT on January 1, 2022)
  • Points will be saved for 12 months after terminating or cancelling participation in the Knect Loyalty Programme. You must re-opt and re-register to enter the programme if you left or terminated your participation.


  • Rewards will vary over time, starting at 5,000 points. Navigate to the Knect section of your dashboard (in the top right) and select “Redeem” for more information.


  • Rewards are available usually within two hours of completing a qualifying transaction.

Terminating the Membership:

To terminate your Knect membership, do the following:

  1. Log into your account, if you haven’t already
  2. Go to “Settings” in the top right corner of the dashboard.
  3. Click “Account Settings”
  4. Select “Loyalty Programme”
  5. Click “Deactivate”

And that’s that! In short, Skrill Knect is a fantastic way for consistent users to get bonuses and rewards for simply doing what they already do. If you regularly send or receive money, invest in crypto, or use a Skrill Mastercard or Visa, you will be actively missing out on benefits by not registering for Skrill Knect. 

As it takes three clicks, there really is no good reason to not opt-in – you’d literally be leaving cash on the table! Be sure to peruse Skrill’s rules and conditions in your country’s specific section of the site, and you’ll be all set to get started earning bonuses and rewards for just doing your thing.
