Facebook Messenger Allows You to Send and Receive Money with PayPal

Facebook Messenger now allows you to send and receive money via PayPal

This time around, Facebook and PayPal expanded their partnership by allowing person-to-person payments without leaving the app and by letting users send and request money with their accounts. PayPal could be made the funding source for Messenger contacts when making P2P payments.

At present, the feature is available for iOS users and in the US only.

PayPal and Facebook's relationship has grown since the companies a year ago began to let US customers shop from online merchants using Messenger chatbots, then making a payment with PayPal. Search for PayPal in the search field and then type a message and the bot should be able to assist you. After that, select PayPal as the payment method by tapping on "Change" if you had used any other payment method on Messenger before. (Since then, Messenger has stayed mum on how many users are actually using the feature.) For comparison, PayPal allows people to make payments by inputting their debit card, credit card or bank account information. This functionality will be available from the blue + icon visible in Facebook Messenger as a new Payments option. The feature is available starting today.

According to a report by IANS, PayPal's move to enable its users to exchange money while chatting on Facebook Messenger, will be more convenient for people in various contexts. Recently Facebook has planned to incorporate PayPal for this objective.

What do you think about this new feature? The service embedded in iOS 11 and it rests with the company when they wish to release it. The device will then show Apple Pay in iMessage as a suggestion where it usually predicts the next word.

Facebook Messenger launched its own peer-to-peer - or friend-to-friend - money transfer service, in 2015.

In the meantime, the Facebook app has also been updated with improvements to speed and stability.
