Online payments firm Skrill has decided to waive fees for its wallet and Quick Checkout solution to support SMBs who are serving communities amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
For this offer, Skrill targets food and grocery delivery services, protective wear providers, educational services and online conferencing solutions.
Users can access these services for free until at least the end of September this year.
Skrill CEO Lorenzo Pellegrino said: “As we watch the devastating effect of the virus take hold in my home country of Italy and around the world, it is heartening to see the incredible efforts from smaller businesses offering support to communities and keeping their doors open to serve us – whether that’s food stores, delivery companies, online streaming services or providers of protective clothing.
“We’re keen to help ease the immense pressure these businesses are experiencing at this point in time and support them from behind the scenes in the valuable roles they are playing for people everywhere.”
Using Skrill, businesses can use a single integration to process cards, wallets, instant bank transfers, cash payments along with other alternative payment methods.
Last month, the firm scrapped all fees and foreign exchange charges for those utilising Skrill Money Transfer to send money to Italy.
The company is part of Paysafe Group, which has an annualised transactional volume of over $85bn.
