PayPal announced today that they will be collaborating with Microsoft Outlook and BBM to make it a lot easier to send and receive money through PayPal.
Starting today, Outlook users will be able to send and receive money from PayPal through Outlook using a PayPal add-in, which is available for Office 2013 and Office 365 via Office Store. It’ll also be rolling out through the month for Outlook.com users.
They have also teamed up with BBM to allow users to send and receive through the popular IM client, though it is currently only available in Canada, but we hope to see it rolling out soon to other countries. Simply connect your PayPal account to BBM and you’re set.
PayPal has always been introducing new ways to manage, send and receive money and this new move will sure make it easier. If you try out any of these new methods, let us know how it goes!
