Skype's new beta for Windows 3.
Dubbed Skype Prime, the new beta service allows customers to charge incoming callers by the minute or assess a one-time fee. Skype believes that the service will spur new business models, including fee-based help services online.
A sex line or two wouldn't be too hard to imagine, either. The new service only works on Skype-to-Skype calls, but this also s for how customizable the experience is. All calls placed using Skype are free at first, but after making a connection to a Skype Prime partner, a of payment options become possible.
A caller can review those payment options in the Skype client, and chose to accept them or not. No fees are automatically paid just by calling a Skype Prime member, in other words. The move comes as the "Question and Answer" business heats up following Google's questionable departure from the scene.
Skype's aim with Skype Prime is to make it possible for entrepreneurs to establish paid call-in lines for technical support or any other information-based service. While the service doesn't work with phone calls originating from standard telephones, Skype hopes that its massive user base will provide the catalyst to a successful launch.
If there's a hitch in the plan, it's Skype's plan to shave 30 percent off the top of revenues collected. This hefty share will be assessed after Skype's sister company, PayPal, deducts its usual percent from the transaction. That rate is twice what competitor Ether charges, although Ether has neither the user base nor the brand name recognition.
Ether does offer the ability to charge POTS users, however.
