Does Skrill hold funds like PayPal?

I've never used Skrill before and I am wondering, do they hold funds when you receive a payment like PayPal? The money is from a family member, is there an option to select a family payment or not in Skrill? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I don't mind paying a small fee for withdrawals, what I want to know is do they hold funds like PayPal?

What I meant was, not holding it myself, do they hold it for security reasons or verification reasons etc, e.g PayPal holds funds for new users for 21 days.

They don't have online banking and therefore cannot make any outgoing payments. I would also use Skrill as a payment method for eBay, as I personally hate PayPal from past experience.

You can use Skrill as a payment method for eBay but you have to contact Skrill so they can integrate the payment system so I can sell on eBay and receive money in Skrill instead of using PayPal.

PayPal and eBay are shortly becoming separate companies, so how are sellers going to receive money and how are buyers going to pay?
pretty sure ebay will still integrate with PayPal, Just paypal are looking to broaden what they are to try and compete with the likes of apple pay and others

You might be in for a wait, he's been suspended...
They don't have a security waiting time, you get the payment sent to you and then you have to accept it from your account online
