How do I allocate Skype Credit to a SIP Profile for outbound calling?

This FAQ contains instructions on how to allocate Skype Credit to a SIP Profile and how to take back Skype Credit from a SIP Profile.

Skype Credit can be allocated directly to a SIP Profile to pay for your outbound calling. You can also use the Auto-recharge option to avoid the accidental loss of the outbound calling capability that will occur should a SIP Profile run out of Skype Credit.

Channel Subscriptions and fees for Skype Numbers are paid from directly from your Skype Manager™ balance.
