There are two ways to give Skype Credit as a gift: buy a Skype voucher online, or send someone your own Skype Credit from your account balance.
You can send a Skype voucher as a gift to anyone by email – they don’t need to be a Skype contact. Just go to the gift Skype Credit page, enter the information requested, choose a gift card design and select Preview and Pay. Enter your details, choose a payment method and select the Payment button to confirm payment details.
You can send any of your existing Skype contacts some of your own Skype Credit as a gift. The credit will be deducted from the balance in your account.
If your Skype account currency is different to the currency in your friend’s account, we will convert the credit to their currency at European Central Bank rates.
To protect our customers from fraud, we set limits for the purchase of Skype Credit gifts, learn more.
