  • 0

When you register a payment method with Linden Lab, they perform a standard industry test to verify that the method is capable of making instantaneous transactions.  They issue a $1 charge against your payment method and then reverse the charge as soon as they receive payment. The "charge" is actually a request for authorization, so no actual money changes hands.  If they do not receive a confirmation signal within a matter of seconds, the test fails and your registration is rejected.  Typically, that happens because the backup source that you have used (in this case the backup for your Skrill account) is a bank account, a debit card, or a prepaid card of some kind.  Bank accounts, in particular, can take hours or even days to transfer money.

When the verification test fails, your Skrill account will eventually indicate that the authorization has been reversed, but it may take a while.  Most prepaid cards will not work at all, because they will not send an authorization signal, so they should be rejected at the start of the test.
