I started up with $10 credits. I can only top up twice a month, making it $20. Is there any way I can go higher?

    Found this quote on the skype forums at

    As a new purchaser, someone who has only started purchasing in the past 3 months, you are restricted from purchasing again until you have gone below 5 EUR.

    New users are also restricted to 20 EUR credit per month using credit card, 30 EUR using Paypal and 100 EUR per month using Moneybookers or Bank transfers.

    This restriction is lifted permanently once you have been a Skype Credits purchaser for 3 months.

    We suggest you to subscribe to Skype Groups, which is free, if you want to be able to buy more credits.

    You can find all information under :

    You can view your order history to see when your first order was and when the 3 month restriction will be lifted:
