The $skip parameter does not work in SharePoint 2013 for list items. It only works for collection of data (like list collections, etc).

You can use SharePoint 2010 REST API for achieve your result.

siteUrl + "_vti_bin/ListData.svc/Example?$skip=10&$top=10"

  • actually I achieved with using $filter :) Commented Jan 25, 2017 at 10:52
  • okie :) In future if you have requirement then please refer above answer. Commented Jan 25, 2017 at 10:54

Maybe you can use the $skip token, as described


A data service URI with a $skip system query option identifies a subset of the entities in the collection of entities identified by the resource path section of the URI. That subset is defined by seeking N entities into the collection and selecting only the remaining entities (starting with entity N+1).

  • Thanks for answer but I already changed it to this.. they said skip is deprecated and used no more also your post about wcf service target which is out of my question(if it is not please let me know), my source is sharepoint list Commented Jan 25, 2017 at 10:21
