Making payments safely
Skype-to-Skype calls will always be free but there are a few things
that cost a little such as calling mobiles and ordinary phones when you
want to get hold of your friends that havent started using Skype yet.
In order to do this you will need to buy some Skype Credit. We want to
make sure that you know how to make payments safely.

Avoid scammers

Avoid making purchases and giving your credit card number
to sites that claim to be reselling Skype services. These are not at all
related to, nor endorsed by Skype, and you make any payments to them
completely at your own risk. You can buy SkypeOut calling time directly
in the Skype Store. You can also buy hardware and services from Skype

Do not reply to emails that request your credit card
details, password or other data. Skype will never request such data by
email – for payments, you can securely enter your data in the Skype
Store. Our Live Support may request your payment/order or ticket
tracking numbers for streamlined troubleshooting, but they will never
request your credit card data or password.

Please help us and other users by reporting any illegal
resellers or parties misrepresenting themselves as Skype by sending an
email to

Keep your payment data safe

Although the basic Skype-to-Skype calls are and will always
remain free of charge, some services, such as SkypeOut, require payment
from you. We only collect payment data, such as your credit card
number, in our secure web store, and hand it on to our payment service
provider without storing it. Do not give out your credit card data to
anyone else, including our Live Support personnel. Live Support may
request other details, such as your order number or time of purchase. In
such cases, please provide it to them for solving your questions in a
timely manner.
