PayPal and Skype users in 22 countries – including Ireland – can now send money from PayPal directly in their Skype mobile app. With this new app, people in Ireland can send money ‘in the moment’ to friends and family in Ireland and 21 other countries, including the United States and UK.

More than $7 million an hour is sent to family and friends globally through PayPal services.

The partnership with Skype is another example of how PayPal is enabling users to send money in more places and in new contexts, online and on mobile. This year, PayPal has also integrated with Siri for iPhone users, in the Slack messenger app and in email via Microsoft’s Outlook.com.

Commenting on the news, John Kunze, VP of Global Consumer Product & Xoom, PayPal said: “At PayPal, we are committed to putting our customers’ needs first. That’s why we aim to provide people with choice and flexibility in how they send or receive money. Over the past year, we’ve partnered with Apple, Slack and Microsoft to enable peer-to-peer (P2P) payments with PayPal and Venmo in more places and in more contexts where people are connecting online and on mobile, such as a voice command with Siri, in chat with iMessage and Slack, and in email via Microsoft’s Outlook.com.

“Today, we’re excited to announce that PayPal is now partnering with Skype to allow users in 22 countries to send money to other Skype users with PayPal via their Skype mobile app. With over one billion Skype mobile downloads to date globally, users will be able to use PayPal directly from their Skype app to seamlessly send money in the moment – like for a gift for a family member across the country or internationally.”

The ability to send money with PayPal on Skype is starting to rollout today to PayPal and Skype users in the United States, UK, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain. The feature will initially be rolled out to Skype customers on the latest version of Skype for iOS and Android mobile devices.
