If you want to give someone Skype Credit as a gift, there are two ways to do this: either purchase a Skype voucher online, or send one yourself from the balance of your account.
How do I buy a Skype voucher as a gift?
You can purchase a Skype Credit voucher if you don’t have any Skype Credit in your account so that you can send it as a gift to one of your Skype contacts in case you don’t have any Skype Credit available.
- Go to the Send Skype Credit to Family and Friends page and fill out the form.
- To send credit to a particular contact, select the contact from the drop-down menu.
- There are several options when it comes to selecting a credit amount and the design of your gift card.
- We will walk you through the process of purchasing Skype Credit once you select Buy Skype Credit.
How do I send someone my own Skype Credit as a gift?
In order to give some Skype Credit to any existing Skype contact of yours as a gift, you will need to use some of your own Skype Credit. There will be a deduction from the balance of your account when the credit is applied.
- Click on your Skype contact’s name to go to the 1:1 chat.
- If you are on a desktop computer, click the more options button, or if you are on a mobile device, click the plus button.
- By selecting Send Skype Credit, you will be able to send money via Skype.
- Choose from a variety of designs and amounts for your gift card.
- If you are ready, select the button “Send Credit” when you are ready.
The credit will be converted to your friend’s currency at the European Central Bank’s rates if the currency of your Skype account differs from the currency in their account.

Sadly, no. In the event that you have already used a paid product, we are unable to provide a refund. Skype’s refund policies clearly state that a Skype Number can be used from the day it is purchased to receive incoming calls; therefore, Skype Numbers cannot be refunded since you must begin using them as soon as you purchase them; because of that you cannot request a refund.
