    PayPal* is an online payment method that lets you buy Skype Credit and other Skype products quickly and easily, where available, without having to share your financial information every time you make a purchase.

    PayPal is no longer available in Turkey and can no longer be used as a payment method for Skype. Please use another payment method to buy Skype Credit and subscriptions.
