PayPal Senior Director of Core Consumer Products Meron Colbeci published the following post on the PayPal blog on Thursday:
Sending and receiving money from friends and family has long been one of the most popular activities on PayPal. In fact, last year we did $41 billion in peer-to-peer (P2P) volume across PayPal, Venmo and Xoom. And, with the holidays around the corner, PayPal predicts more than 17 million P2P transactions in the month of December alone.
With so many P2P transactions happening during such a busy season, we’re excited to give our users an early holiday present: starting November 10, Siri will be integrated with PayPal. For iPhone and iPad users running iOS 10, making a payment has never been easier – PayPal users can now send and request money via a voice command with Siri. Simply say, “Hey Siri, send Bill $50 using PayPal.” Voila! One less thing to check off the to-do list this holiday season.
We are excited to provide this integration for our consumers in 30 countries, and in a variety of languages, including: Australia, Austria, Belgium (French and Dutch), Brazil, Canada (English and French), China, Denmark, Finland (Finnish), France, Germany, Hong Kong (Cantonese), India, Israel (Hebrew), Italy, Japan, Malaysia (Malay), Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia (Arabic), Singapore (English), Spain, Sweden, Switzerland (French, German, and Italian), Thailand, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates (Arabic) and United States.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about making sending and receiving money even easier. You can get the latest version of the PayPal app on the App Store, and if you have any questions about using PayPal with Siri, please visit our Help Center.
