You can now use PayPal through Skype's mobile app

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.

This new Send Money feature requires the new Skype clients, which for now means Android and iOS only.

Skype users can now send money to one another thanks to a new partnership with PayPal. You'll need to have the latest version of Skype to use the feature, but the recipient can be running any version. Sending and money over skype will be directly from and to the linked PayPal account, and the only difference is you are not on the PayPal app/website. PayPal's payment system on Skype works pretty much as it does on other communication platforms like Slack and iMessage.
