  1. Replace Skype Credit with Microsoft Reward Points

    Skype credits is one of those things that is only used for Skype. It would be nice if Skype credit was replaced with Microsoft Reward Points instead since the points can be used for a variety of services.

  9. I've been using Skype since 2005 for English tutoring, could we get an invoicing plugin for Skype so I can invoice instantly?

    I'd like to be able to use Skype for my tutoring and then use it to send invoices to my clients using the same account/s. For example, I teach 'Zoe' for 1 hour and charge her $90.00, I'd like something that would allow her to pay by CC or DD through a secure plugin on the Skype app. This would also be able to keep records of session dates and times and invoicing information in the same place. I've been using Skype since 2005 for my business and it's great, I'm very thankful for the app. I think I'm the…

    We hear you  ·  rorymc121 responded

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your input, we really like this idea and will add it to our new product ideas internally for discussion!

    Many people will find use for this as Skype is often used by teachers and solo entrepreneurs who would find such a feature very useful when running their small business.

    One suggestion I have in the meantime is to try out Skype Money if you haven’t already. You can send and also request money using PayPal directly from Skype, so if your student has PayPal you can use this for payments in the app :)

    https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA34766/what-is-money-and-how-do-i-use-it-in-skype

    Hope this is useful.

    Best,
    Rory

  10. Automated invoice sending

    I need to submit my Skype invoices to my accountant.
    Right now I manually sign in, look up the invoice, download it and send it to my accountant. 12 times a year.
    You cam make this easier by providing automated invoice sending.
    Please consider this idea.

  12. Hope that one who loses the recurring payment for a great service which meantime has expired can have that reinstated! The old good Premium!

    Was my fault again to have let expired that great Premium paid service. Skype previously reinstated it for me. Really hope that myracle could happen again. Old Premium's so great and convenient!

  13. payment/

    Some people are experiencing difficulties with buying skype credit, as the same credit card info used previously does not work any longer. It appears that Microsoft now requires one to delete their method of payment from their skype account and register this information with a Microsoft account. It would have been helpful to receive an e-mail from Microsoft indicating this new requirement.

  14. UWP App crashes with Oops! error when I try to call a phone number.

    ALL VERSIONS OF UWP on Desktop and Phone crash when trying to dial a phone number, receive a call to my Skype Number, or view history of Skype calls involving phone numbers. All Skype to Skype works fine. This all started after 01/26/19 and I've seen other users than myself complain. What did Skype change after that date? When will Support ask my for logs on my devices to fix this issue?

  15. Caller identification using my Skype Number for Germany

    I bought a German Number but can't set it up as Skype Caller ID. So I always have to tell my customers that I call not to call back the number they see in their diplay (if at all). Are their plans to enable this feature for Germany? Or can you set it up for my account somehow manually?
