How do I buy Skype Credit in Skype for Mac OS X?

Skype Credit enables you to make calls to mobiles or landlines; check out our rates page.

To buy Skype Credit, simply log in to your Skype account from your internet browser, click Buy Credit (or Add Skype Credit if you’ve bought Skype Credit before) and follow the instructions to complete your purchase.

If you’re already signed in to Skype, you can buy Skype Credit directly from the app:

  1. Click your name or Add Credit at the top left of the Skype main window to open the Profile window.

If you already have Skype Credit, your credit balance is displayed instead of the Add Credit link. 

  1. At the bottom of your Profile window, click Buy Skype Credit. If you already have Skype Credit, Add Skype Credit will be displayed instead.

If you have no Skype Credit and you’re trying to send an SMS text message or make a call to a mobile or landline, you’ll be asked to add some to your account.

If you’ve purchased Skype Credit with Visa, MasterCard or PayPal before, a pop-up window opens. Simply click the Add Credit button. If you haven’t purchased Skype Credit using one of these payment methods, click the get Skype Credit link in the conversation window.

The get Skype Credit link in the Skype conversation window.
