Skype credit transfer

I have Skype credit expiring in a few days and I'm not planning on using it. Can I transfer it to another person?

sorry, it is not possible to transfer Skype credit from one user to another, but if you make ONE SkypeOut call to the pstn (even to a toll-free number where credit is not required) then the expiration counter is reset and you have another 180 days to use up the credit

the fact that your account was hacked is unfortunate, but irrelevant -- your question is answered

 

and there are already methods to help recover hacked accounts, but that would be the topic of another thread, not one that covers credit transfer

Re: Skype credit transfer

Hi, I have 2 different skype names under the same email address, I want to deactivate one so I can keep only one account. Can I transfer the credits from the account i want to cancel to the other one under the same email address??

Hello MarcioValle,

Please do NOT use someone else's thread to post a totally unrelated issue.

You need to start your own thread and post it in the "Payments" sub-forum.

Thank you.
