Does anyone know if it's possible to buy Skypeout credit by credit card? If not, why I wonder is it no longer possible?

Skype gives no indication Aug 5, 2005

I bought SkypeOut credit with CC about a month ago. Also, a look at the website under SykpeOut doesn't indicate that payment with CC isn't possible anymore. Where did you get that info from?

Greetings,
Rebecca

It still worked on June 13 Aug 5, 2005

I regularly buy Skype minutes.
Last time was apparently on June 13. No problems then.


Good luck!

It's just that I am given 3 choices: Moneybookers, Paypal and bank draft, none of which I've previously used. The credit card payment method doesn't seem to be given. Maybe I've missed it somewhere?

It seems that Skype no longer allows... Aug 5, 2005

... CC use for purchase of SkypeOut credits. I used to buy credits at least twice a month with my CC... until 3 days ago, when it said "Card Payment Failed". I went through the Skype forums and found out that many other people were having the same problems (of course I had sufficient funds on my CC). There was also a forum posting that Paypal payments also fail.

Regards,

Emilija

Thanks to you all for your help. Tim, a Proz colleague, has said that he has found that if the skype people see that you have 2 accounts, they withdraw the CC option for security reasons. This seems to be what has happened in my case. I entered a different address to that of my account, as the number of the apartment building where I live had been recently changed. O that I had not been so zealous!
(the latest as of 6 August)Skype billing has promised me a reply in a couple of days. Good luck with your CC problem Emilija!

After a number of exchanges with Skype Support, who have been very attentive, and an abortive try to use my credit card with Moneybookers, I have learnt (12 August) that, in the words of Skype, "Unfortunately it is not possible for you to use your credit card, since we do not accept payments with credit cards from Spain at the moment due to technical incompabilities".
A mysterious situation for one with an internationally accredited credit card to find himself in....
