What is Auto-recharge in Skype Manager™ and how does it work?

Auto-recharge works by adding Skype Credit to your balance when it falls below a certain amount. For example, you can configure Auto-recharge to purchase an additional €200 of Skype Credit whenever your balance falls below €25.

Auto-recharge is available with PayPal, Skrill (Moneybookers) or credit card payments. Be aware that if you have not verified your company, these payment methods may be unavailable to you.

When you purchase Skype Credit with PayPal, Skrill or a credit card, the Auto-recharge option is displayed.

Simply check the box to enable Auto-recharge. By default, Auto-recharge is configured to add Skype Credit to your balance when it falls below €2. You are free to cancel the Auto-recharge feature at any time.
