PayPal Comes to the New Skype

Image Pay Pal | Skype Integration on Mobile

Called "Send Money", the new feature lets Skype users in 22 countries link their PayPal accounts and send money with a swipe and a tap within the Skype mobile app. Then, you'll select "Find" on the top bar while in conversation with a friend or family member, and choose the "Send Money" add-in.

The US based, Elon Musk owned firm PayPal has already announced their upcoming tie-ups with several companies like Apple, Visa, etc. for integrating their system as a default payment system.

When you first try to use Send Money you'll be prompted to connect your Skype and PayPal accounts together. Type the amount you'd like to send, confirm the transaction and hit send.

Do however note that this functionality is designed for sending money to friends and family, and not for payments of goods or services from businesses. Make sure you have the latest version of the Skype app installed. The PayPal rates are exactly the same as they would be if you used its peer-to-peer payments on other platforms.

As TechCrunch noted, Skype and PayPal originally partnered a decade ago before Microsoft acquired Skype and before PayPal spun off from eBay.

The new "Send Money" feature, which has launched in 22 countries including the United Kingdom, brings the ability to send and receive peer-to-peer payments with PayPal to Microsoft's messaging app.

Send Money now works in the US, Canada, UK (Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man), Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain.
