Don’t feel like tapping or swiping around on your phone, but have to pay your buddy $17 for all that pizza you devoured last night? If you’ve got the PayPal app on an iOS device, you can now just tell Siri to do it.

PayPal says that as of today, Siri is integrated with PayPal, allowing users to send and request money via simple voice commands. PayPal notes that the holiday season is expected to be a big one in the world of peer-to-peer payments, with the company predicting more than 17 million P2P transactions in November alone.

Want to pay Bill $17 for that pizza (it was a lot of food, okay? And you were sad)? Say, “Hey Siri, send Bill $17 using PayPal.” Bill is happy, and so are you because you’ve been eating pizza.


In order to use Siri, you’ll have to make sure you’ve got the latest version of the PayPal app and be logged in when you ask her to do stuff.

Siri will be available in the PayPal app in 30 countries and in various languages as well: 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.
