Facebook has always tried to make its Messenger an app that allows you shop for all kind of stuff, this time Facebook has integrated with PayPal in order to ensure seamless money transactions for its users.
Sending money from the messenger is nothing new and it’s been there since 2015. But that used to be done by linking a debit card or bank account to the Facebook account.
There was, as such, nothing wrong with that, but for those who use their PayPal account extensively, this new feature is a welcome one.
How to use PayPal in Facebook messenger?
In order to use PayPal for paying money from the Messenger app, all you need to do is to tap the blue Plusicon and hit the paymentsoption. After this, you need to choose PayPal as your preferred payment option and you are good to go. You can either make a payment via PayPal or deposit the money you have received to your PayPal account.
You can send the money to a single person or even to a group of friends.
In addition to all this, PayPal is soon launching its own messenger bot that people can interact with to know about their account balance, unauthorized usage, summaries, to change their password and some other important stuff. The feature will be available on iOS and web ahead of Android.
