Skype and PayPal team up with new Send Money feature

Quote:
At Skype, we work to make your life easier and more efficient. That’s why we developed Send Money, a Skype feature that allows you to transfer funds via the latest Skype mobile app while you’re in the middle of a conversation using PayPal.

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.

The first time you use the Send Money feature, you’ll be asked to confirm your location. If the Send Money feature is available in your location, you will need to link your PayPal account to your Skype profile. PayPal handles the money transfers and usually within moments, your money is on its way.

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.

To use the Send Money feature, both you and the funds’ recipient must reside in one of the 22 countries* in which Send Money is supported, and currency exchange is no problem. If you’re sending funds from the U.S., for example, to someone in Europe, you will have the option to send money in Euros.

Whether it’s to send money to your daughter studying abroad, reimburse a friend for grabbing milk at the store, or one of a million other reasons you might need to transfer cash, Send Money makes it easy and efficient. Download the latest version of Skype for your iPhone or Android phone and give it a try, or learn more about how Send Money works.



Check out PayPal’s blog post and we look forward to hearing your feedback in the Skype Community!

*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.

PayPal Credit (not "PayPal") payment methods??
I just discovered there is something at eBay called Paypal Credit, as opposed to Paypal itself. It's not a credit card, just a credit line from a Maryland bank for $250 minimum if you are accepted. You can use it as a payment method when you buy something on eBay. I think you checkout...
