Skrill Integrates Russian Payment Method into Wallet

May 28, 2013

Digital wallet provider Skrill announced it has partnered with Yandex.Money to include the Russian online payment method in its wallet. London-based Skrill said the collaboration will enable it to expand coverage of the Russian payments market while Yandex.Money, Russia’s most popular online payment method, is now available to customers of Skrill’s 140,000 global merchants.

“We want to give our users an opportunity to pay with Yandex.Money in any Internet store anywhere in the world. Some of the Internet’s most popular services, such as Skype, Facebook and McAfee, are already using Yandex.Money for payments in Russia,” said Maria Gracheva, business development director at Yandex.Money. “Thanks to our collaboration with Skrill, any Internet store can now join up with us—particularly those stores that are interested in attracting customers from Russia and other CIS countries.”
