“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,” John Kunze, vice president for global consumer product & Xoom at PayPal wrote in a blog post.
