Pay Skype Credit

Pay Skype Credit

As you know, not all Skype services are free. There are some that require a payment. For example, a call to a mobile or landline phone. But, in this case, the relevant question is how to recharge Skype. Let's find out.

Step 1: Actions in the Skype window

The first thing to do is perform certain actions within the Skype interface. Naturally, there are nuances when carrying out these manipulations, depending on the version of the program, since they have a different interface.

Pay money on Skype 8 and higher

First of all, we are going to break down the algorithm for depositing money in Skype 8.

  1. On the left side of the software interface, click the ellipsis item - "Plus".. In the displayed list, click the item "Settings"..
  2. In the configuration window that opens, go to the section «Account and profile». and click on the button "Add funds". in front of the article "Skype phone.".
  3. Next on the block. «Mobile and landlines» click the article «Learn rates»..
  4. After that, the default browser installed on the system will open on the page of the official Skype website and all subsequent manipulations will have to be done exactly on it.

Pay money in Skype 7 and under

The algorithm of actions in Skype 7 and earlier versions of this messenger is slightly different from the order described above. It is enough to carry out a couple of manipulations in the window of the program itself.

  1. Open the menu option "Skype"and in the list that appears, click "Skype Credit"..
  2. Afterwards, the default browser starts.

The mobile version of the Skype app

If you are actively using Skype on your mobile device, you can proceed to recharge directly from the application. The steps you must follow are identical for both Android and iOS devices.

  1. Once you've started Skype, go to the details section of your profile. To do this, click on its icon in the upper panel.
  2. Click the button "Add funds".and on the next page click on the link «Discover the rates»..
  3. You will see a section of the Skype website where you can see the available plans and therefore put money in your account. We recommend opening this page in a full (mobile) browser to facilitate navigation and necessary actions. Just touch the three vertical dots in the upper right corner and select the appropriate option from the menu that appears.
  4. The steps they follow to enable Skype Credit are exactly the same as described in the next part of this article. The only difference is the positioning of the web interface with which you will have to interact. Thus, in the case of the mobile version of the messenger, it will, for obvious reasons, be vertical instead of horizontal. The names and locations of the required items do not differ from those in the browser on your PC, so simply use the following instructions.

Step 2: Actions in the browser

Regardless of the version you used to open the messenger's official website page in your browser, all subsequent actions must be performed in the order listed below.

  1. In the window that opens, click the link "Money in your Skype account.".
  2. Open the page of the official Skype website, where you can deposit money into an internal account. You can choose to deposit 5, 10 or 25 dollars. But you can choose, if you want, the equivalent of another currency, simply by clicking on the field to select the monetary unit. However, there are no Russian rubles on this list.
  3. In addition, you can activate automatic payment simply by checking the corresponding box. In this case, the payment will be automatically credited using the method you choose, as soon as the amount of your Skype balance is less than 2 dollars.
  4. Just press the switch on the amount you want to pay and then click the button "Keep going"..
  5. In the next step, we have to log into our Skype account through the browser. First, we enter the username, email address, or phone number that you provided when signing up for Skype. Then click "Register"..
  6. In the next window, enter the password for your Skype account and click "Register"..
  7. The personal data entry form opens. Here you have to enter your name and surname, country, address, city of residence and postal code. Don't be ashamed of the presence of two fields with the name "Address".. The introduction of data is mandatory only in the first one, and the second serves as an additional one, in case the address is very large, and includes the names of the regions and smaller entities. But there is no need to worry that every time you top up your account you have to enter all this information. They are entered only once and then automatically extracted from the database. Once the data has been entered, press the button "Keep going"..
  8. In front of us, the selection section of the payment system through which you plan to recharge your Skype account opens.

Let's take a look at the most popular charging methods.

Top up with bank card

Right in the payment system selection window there is a way to recharge the account in Skype using a bank card. Therefore, if you plan to reload by this method, you do not need to go anywhere, but simply scroll the window with the mouse wheel a little down. The recharge of the account is available from the cards of the Visa payment systems. MasterCard, Maestro and many others.

To transfer the payment, enter the corresponding fields:

  • Card number;
  • Cardholder Name;
  • month and year of expiration of the card;
  • the verification code (CVC2 / CVV2) located on the back of the card.

It is essential that you accept the privacy conditions and the Skype terms of service by checking the corresponding box. Then press the button "Pay"..

The payment procedure that you follow depends on the bank that issued the card and the security settings you have established to work with it. In some cases the payment is automatic, in others you have to authorize the transaction in the online banking cabinet.

Replenishment through WebMoney

  1. To recharge Skype with another payment system, click "Others"..
  2. In the window that opens, click on the signed form "Select what you want."and choose the payment system. In addition to the bank card, the following payment systems are available: PalPay, Yandex Money, WebMoney, QIWI, Skrill, Alipay, bank transfer.

    We will consider replenishment with WebMoney, which is why we chose this payment system.

  3. In addition, we put a mark on the corresponding form, confirming the agreement with the system rules, and click on the button "Keep going"..
  4. After that, we navigate to the WebMoney site.
  5. The same actions are carried out here, as in any other payment for services through the WebMoney system on the Internet. As in the previous case, the specific steps depend on several factors at the same time: the security settings in your WebMoney account, the type of holder used, the use of the E-NUM system. But if you have used the WebMoney payment system to recharge your Skype account instead of another service, this is not the first time you have made these types of payments on the Internet and it should not be a problem knowing what to do next.

Skype Credit with other payment systems is based on the same principles as the two described above, but of course with small nuances inherent in each payment system.

Replenishment through a terminal

In addition to recharging Skype over the Internet, there is the possibility of doing so through a payment terminal. To do this, first of all, it is necessary to find a terminal, located in public buildings, which among the list of services, has the ability to recharge Skype. Next, enter your Skype number and deposit the desired amount of money in cash in the banknote receiver.

As we can see, there are two main ways to recharge your Skype account: through the web interface and through a cash payment terminal. At the same time, online financing involves several popular payment systems. In general, the procedure for recharging the Skype account is not very complicated and intuitive.
