Skype Click to Call makes it easier for visitors to your website to call phone numbers listed on your page, as long as they’re formatted in a way that our software can recognize. Follow the guidelines below to make sure phone numbers are displayed correctly.
Phone numbers should be in the format +CC - NDC - SN, where:
For example, USA phone numbers have the following international format:
+ 1 - City Area Code - Number you wish to call
This is how it will look: +1-862-3135071
Always use this format for scripting phone numbers on your webpages, and make sure you enter the + sign at the beginning of each number.
Check the length of the phone numbers before you publish them on your website to be sure that they’ll be recognized. You can use an online service* for this. Just select a country from the drop-down list to check how long the phone number should be.
