What is Paypal?
PayPal provides us with the convenience of sending money to just about anyone with an email id! We do not need to know any other personal details of the recipient. It is great for settling small accounts with friends - for example our share of last weekend's get together.
Those who shop or bid online at auction sites know the usefulness of Paypal all the better. It is extremely important for anyone who sells merchandise at any auction site. They must have a Paypal account since it is the most widely accepted payment system as of now.
What is Skype?
Ever wanter to do free PC-to-PC voice call. How about audio and video conferencing - all FREE! Answer to our wishes is Skype. It is a peer-to-peer internet telephony network. One can make calls to a real telephone or a cell phone as well. The usual bells and whistles associated with a messaging system like chat and file sharing are also present. Skype has a very user friendly interface.
Now we can send money with just a click of a button right from Skype! Imagine this: while we are chatting or talking with a friend named Mary, she tells us that we owe her $50 from last night's dinner. One click and voila - money sent! There is no need to log into Paypal for sending the money.
