This usually means your payment has been submitted and is being processed. For bank transfer payments, pending status means that the order has been created but payment has not yet been matched to it. When payment is accepted, the status will change to 'Delivered' and your Skype account will be credited.
Credit card is the quickest way to pay and usually takes 15 minutes (but sometimes up to 24 hours) to process. The status will change to 'Delivered' when payment is accepted, or 'Canceled' if payment is unsuccessful.
Bank Transfer payments can remain pending for 7-10 business days before crediting your Skype account.
If you paid through Skrill (Moneybookers), the order status remains pending until we have received your payment. Skrill may ask you for further verification and your order will remain pending until they receive all the necessary documentation. Your order status can remain pending up to a maximum of 14 days. After that, if no payment has been received, the order will be canceled.
If you paid via PayPal using an eCheck or Internet Transfer, your order can remain pending for several days.
If you paid via PayPal and the funding source for the PayPal account is a credit card, if the order status is still pending after 24 hours, please contact Skype Customer Service.
