Skype gets support for integrated PayPal payments

If the feature is available is your area, you'll first need to link your PayPal account to your Skype profile.

In order to send money, users need the latest version of the Skype app but the contact that's receiving money can be on any version of Skype. You just type in the amount to send, confirm the payment, and hit send to complete the transaction. PayPal's payment system on Skype works pretty much as it does on other communication platforms like Slack and iMessage.

Simply pause your Android or iOS conversation for a few seconds, swipe right, tap Send Money, and authorize the money transfer process to friends or family members.

Like every other implementation in the market, you'll be able to use Skype's mobile app and with a click of a button, transfer money to someone else. Make sure you have the latest version of the Skype app installed. You can find the new feature under the "Find" tab.

Send Money is available 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.

The Send Money feature also enables worldwide payments, but only between select countries. And don't worry about sending money overseas. In other words, a user in the United States will have the option to send money to a contact in Europe in Euros.

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.
