You can pay for a Skype Number by credit card, PayPal, Skrill (Moneybookers), bank transfer or other payment methods. In most countries*, you can also pay using Skype Credit if your balance is high enough.
Skype Number subscriptions are renewed automatically at the end of the subscription period, but you can cancel it at any time.
To make sure your subscription continues without interruption, the recurring payment is taken three days before the subscription expires. You don’t lose these three days: your Skype Number subscription is still valid for the full period that you signed up for (3 or 12 months).
If you make the initial payment by credit card, PayPal or Skype Credit, the same payment method will be used for the recurring payment.
If the initial payment is made using Skrill, bank transfer or other payment methods, the recurring payment will be taken from your Skype Credit balance.
Recurring Skype Number subscriptions aren’t available in France at the moment – we’re working to get them enabled in the near future. Meanwhile, you’ll need to extend your subscription manually each time before the expiry date.
