A regular Skype account is made for personal, at-home use for communication between family and friends. Skype Manager is similar to a regular Skype account but it is designed for businesses. Skype Manager allows you to add your employees under the business account. Skype Manager is free for computer-to-computer calling, but additions, like group video chat and calling landlines or cell phone, require a paid subscription.

  1. 1

    Sign into Skype Manager using your username and password for your personal Skype account. You do not need to change your user name and password to set up a Skype Manager account. You can also set up a completely different Skype Manager account from your personal account, if you wish. Click on the link under "References" to sign in.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Members" icon, then "Add Members," and then "Create Business Account" to add your employees or colleagues to the Skype Manager account. This allows them to use Skype Manager for business purposes under the business account.

  3. 3

    Enter the email address of the person you want to add to the account, then click "Next." Skype will recommend a Skype user name for that person. You can then add a password for that person or allow the person to add his own password. Click "Save and Close" when you are finished adding the person. Skype will send the person you added an e-mail notification about the account. Repeat this step to add another person to the account.

  4. 4

    Click "Buy Skype Credit" to purchase Skype credit. Select the amount of credit you wish to purchase, then follow the payment instructions. Your Skype Credit balance is updated next to the "Buy Skype Credit" icon.
