  • Image Pay Pal | Skype Integration on Mobile

The feature is available through the Send Money add-on, which allows the transfer of funds using the mobile app. Type the amount you'd like to send, confirm the transaction and hit send. 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.

You can get to try out Send Money in the latest update for Skype on Android here, and on iOS here.

Starting today (2 August) the service will begin rolling out to PayPal and Skype users in the US, UK, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain. You can find the new feature under the "Find" tab.

Today PayPal was added to Skype, and Skype's Send Money feature was enabled.

Send Money is not yet supported in South Africa.




Skype said both the sender and recipient must reside in one of these countries, but noted currency exchange is not a problem. If you're sending funds from the USA, for example, to someone in Europe, you will have the option to send money in Euros.

Sending money from your PayPal balance or USA debit card is free of charge.

The full list of supported markets includes: the U.S., the U.K., Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain.

This is not the first time Skype has offered peer-to-peer payments powered by PayPal in its app, though you'll be dating yourself a bit if you remember when such an integration was announced before!
