Facebook Messenger adds support for Peer-to-Peer Payments through PayPal

You can send money on Facebook Messenger using PayPal now

The giant has recently bought a new tbh app for the teens of US. PayPal could be made the funding source for Messenger contacts when making P2P payments.

Despite their popularity, however, Facebook has struggled to monetize its messaging services like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

In addition to enabling P2P payments with PayPal in Facebook Messenger, PayPal are also introducing their first-ever PayPal customer service bot for Messenger, so PayPal customers can seamlessly receive payment and account support directly in the app.

As of April, Facebook Messenger boasted more than 1.2 billion monthly active users. Trulia's bot, for instance, serves up rental listings to users who put in their zip code and price range, while Kayaks bot helps Messenger users find flights, places to stay and rental cars.

PayPal has over 2.5 million accounts in the United States which are already linked with Facebook. The two companies had previously teamed up past year to allow more than 2.5 million USA customers to connect their accounts from both platforms and use PayPal to shop on the messaging app. The aim is to enable PayPal to help you get what you need and get on with your day.

Exchange of money through Facebook's Messenger app has been going on for quite some time now. Tap the blue plus icon, then hit the green Payments button.

After that, enter the amount that you want to send or request, add a note if you want, and then tap on "Pay". It'll bring up two options and you can just move on with PayPal from there. Do you use Facebook Messenger now to send money? This way you can easily send money and can make transactions through your PayPal account. A recent article describes the process used: You can access the feature the same way you'd pay with a card.

The feature is now only rolling out in the U.S. and limited to iOS, with Android support coming soon. The update is now available to download for all Android devices. The feature launches today for U.S. users. More performance enhancements are expected to come off in the next few days. Let us know down in the comments.
