It’s about time we get PayPal’s money transfer feature on Skype. In a latest development, the video calling app and PayPal have teamed up to make it easier for the users to transfer money to someone mid-conversation.
The new feature is easy to use. While talking to someone on Skype mobile app, you just have to swipe right and tap the new “Send Money” feature. PayPal will take it from there.
For the users – who are sending the money – they will need to have the latest version, but the person receiving the funds can have any version of Skype. Both the users need to be in one of the 22 countries where Send Money is currently supported and have to have PayPal accounts.
The countries that support Skype’s Send Money feature are the US, the UK, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Netherlands, France, Slovakia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Finland, Portugal, San Marino, Germany, Slovenia and Spain. The service has started to roll out, starting from today.
