Now you can send money through the Skype app with your Paypal account — 2022
There is some otherapp for iPhone with which to manage your payments, however there are not so many with which to send money. Skype today announced that users of 22 countries who have an account and are registered will be able to send money with PayPal through its own mobile application available for both iOS and Android.
Online payment from person to person begins to be standardized
Skype has said that the new person-to-person payments feature will start rolling out today in the following countries: United States, United Kingdom, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain .
When this new service is available, users will only have to link their PayPal account with their Skype profile. Once both accounts are linked, in a chat, users will have to scroll right, press Send money and complete the almost instant money transfer process, which is handled entirely by PayPal. Both the sender and receiver must reside in one of the 22 countries listed , since as I said at the beginning of the post, this service will only be available in those 22 countries, both for sending and receiving money, respectively.
PayPal within Skype will support the currency exchange as usual. If a user sends certain capital from the United States, for example, to someone in Europe, the user will have the ability to choose to send the money in Dollars or even in euros , if you prefer.
As is obvious, this new feature will require the latest version of Skype for iOS , available as a free download on the App Store. Nevertheless, users who receive the money can have any version of the Skype application installed , not being necessary to have the latest version, an aspect that allows us to glimpse how both platforms do not want to leave out of this new function users who have an old device and who, due to software limitations, cannot update the Skype application to its latest version.
As you can see, online payment services from person to person are becoming more standardized, an aspect that makes us very happy.
On the other hand, we see how Skype does not stop renewing itself continuously , appearance and quality that have made this platform remain on the podium of its category despite having increasingly strong competition.
