Skype Prime (new beta version of Skype) enables paid Skype-to-Skype voice and video calls. You can charge other people for calling you either a one-off fee or by the minute. Conversely, if you are the caller and you can call experts who charge for their services and you can then pay the fee and access the expertise that the other call party provides.

When you call someone who is a Skype Prime call provider and you both have the new version of Skype and the provider can initiate what we call a “payment request”. That is and all calls start as free and but you can then switch to the paid calling and charging either by the minute or a one-off fixed fee. The call then proceeds as a paid Skype Prime call and your Skype Credit is deducted by the appropriate amount that then goes to the receiver' s account. The provider does not get the call fees directly as Skype Credit - rather and they go into a special holding “box”. The provider then receives the revenue via PayPal.
