Skype Credit is a very convenient and easy way to pay for Skype features and services that are not free. You can use it to make calls to mobiles and landlines, and send SMS text messages, all at Skype’s low rates.
When your Skype Credit runs out, you can simply purchase some more if you need to. You’re not committed to anything.
You can also use your Skype Credit to purchase Skype products, such as subscriptions and Skype Numbers.* You can even use your Skype Credit to connect to the internet using Skype WiFi at available public WiFi hotspots around the world.
Note: Skype Credit is not supported to purchase Skype products in Japan.
