Questions like “Can I reimburse you for those movie tickets?” or “What do I owe you for Mom’s gift?” no longer require switching from Skype to your browser or banking app to start a payment process. Starting today, we’re rolling out the ability to send money with PayPal on Skype. Using your mobile phone while you’re chatting with friends or family, you can simply swipe right, tap Send Money, and complete the money transfer process.
To send money, you’ll need to be using the latest version of the Skype mobile app, but the friend or family member who’s receiving the funds can be using any version of Skype. If you, or your friend who’s receiving the funds, don’t already have a PayPal account, you’ll be prompted to create one the first time you use Send Money.
Send Money is currently supported in the following countries: United States of America, 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.
