When you sign up for a free trial, Skype authorizes a small charge to your credit card or PayPal account to verify your identity and that the payment method is valid. Don’t worry – you won’t pay this amount. You will see this as a pending transaction on your bank statement and the charge is cancelled as soon as your payment method is validated.
If you are in India and your automatic payment fails, it might be due to new regulations effective October 1, 2021. Learn more about what this change means for you.
