To activate the Skrill module in WHMCS, navigate to Setup >> Payments >> Payment Gateways. Then choose the All Available Gateways tab and select Skrill 1-Tap from the available gateways.

Note: If you already receive wallet payments with Skrill, you can simply get in touch with the merchant services team to enable the 1-Tap service for your existing account.

In case you receive direct payments via the Skrill Quick Checkout, please sign up here. You will need to register a new email address which has not been used in Skrill.


An admin can then customize the name to something more friendly such as 1-Tap on-demand payments and enter the Merchant Email, API Password and Secret Word corresponding to the Skrill account.
