PayPal can now give you money (or take your money) through Messenger

You can send money on Facebook Messenger using PayPal now

This new PayPal bot for Messenger will enable people to have meaningful customer service interactions, such as resetting passwords, handling account inquiries, and helping with refunds or payment issues.

Helping PayPal reach a broader audience, Facebook is now inviting USA consumers to use payments service directly from Messenger.

The integration is rolling out for customers residing in the United States. People will have the option to send and request money using their PayPal account, and this integration in Messenger is starting to roll out to US consumers today. To send money hit the + button and then hit the Green button of payments.

PayPal eventually will roll out the service globally, which may take some time considering the massive user base of both companies: Messenger's 1.3 billion and PayPal's 218 million active users.

Additionally, a user can also receive the money from anyone via Facebook Messenger. If someone is already using Facebook Messenger for payments, he can just tap to change button and select Paypal.

Chelsea players said to be unhappy with Antonio Conte
As well as putting players through physically demanding tests, Conte has them sit through tactical and video sessions. Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has dismissed suggestions of disgruntlement at the club over his training methods.

Besides the person-person payment feature, PayPal also announced the launch of a customer service bot for Messenger. Moreover, the utilization of PayPal can also be made in shopping on Messenger and booking rides through various ride-hailing services.

Merging the two mobile tools simplifies transactions in one streamlined app instead of making users switch to the native PayPal app. Becaues of the ease it provides, the new feature will likely appeal to many users among Facebook's large audience who use the platform to buy and sell goods locally. However, the option is only enabled for users in selected markets. You will then be asked to link your PayPal account or you credit/debit card.

Users in the USA are the first to get these new PayPal features and they should be live now with iOS and web going live before Android.

You can access the new feature the same way you'd pay with your credit or debit card. The feature launches today for U.S. users. Share your views with us in the comments. Stay tuned with us for more such useful updates in the coming days.
