  • PayPal Facebook Messenger feature settles the group check

Facebook is making a new push into the payments space by expanding its partnership with PayPal.

PayPal also rolled out on Friday its first customer service chat bot that lets PayPal users forego calling the traditional customer service representative for things like resetting passwords, handling account inquiries, and helping with refunds or payment issues.

"Starting today, we'll be rolling out the ability to use your PayPal account to send or request money, right from Messenger". This integration in Facebook Messenger started spreading among the United States consumers, yesterday. More than 2.5 million people have linked their PayPal account with Messenger, the mobile payment company said. What makes this development even more significant is the fact that now sending funds through the Messenger would be as easy as sending a picture.

In order to send money through PayPal, you don't need to have any special skills.


Exchange of money through Facebook's Messenger app has been going on for quite some time now.

After that, enter the amount that you want to send or request, add a note if you want, and then tap on "Pay". Just select PayPal option from the available option and you will be done. Previously, users could send and receive money using Facebook Messenger by linking their debit/credit card with Facebook, but integrating PayPal makes it a little more convenient. This way you can easily send money and can make transactions through your PayPal account.

This feature can be accessed the same way one used to pay with debit and credit card.

Apple announced at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June it was bringing a person-to-person payment feature and the Apple Pay Cash card to users with iOS 11. Sadly, there is no any official information regarding the availability of it on Android platform yet, however we would get to hear the same from the officials very soon. More performance enhancements are expected to come off in the next few days.
