  2. 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…

    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 :)

    Hope this is useful.

    Best,

    Hej!

    I use the latest version of Mac OS 10.14 Mojave and Skype 8 for Mac. The problem still exists in the latest Preview Version of Skype for Mac.

    Symptoms:
    1. Skype crashes and automatically restarts at intervals of around 3-10 minutes.
    2. Skype is very slow in scrolling and entering text.
    3. When Skype us running it uses all available CPU making the fans on my MacBook Pro run at maximum speed.

    The problem has existed since the release of Mojave. I have tried a number of ways of fixing it, including reinstalling from scratch while removing all preferences…

  4. Problem with the camera in MacOS Mojave

    Skype does not find my camera since I updated to MacOS Mojave, even after re-installing Skype. My camera works with all other applications, but not with Skype. Anyone has an idea how to solve this problem?
