PayPal And Facebook Partner For Peer-To-Peer Payments In Messenger

You can send money on Facebook Messenger using PayPal now

How to get started: Simply search for PayPal in the search field and type a message to PayPal and the bot for Facebook Messenger will take it from there.

"We're excited today to announce an expansion of our relationship with Facebook with the addition of PayPal as a funding source for peer-to-peer (P2P) payments, right in Messenger", PayPal said in a blog post. This announcement came today after the two companies teamed up to integrate PayPal payment services with the Messenger's platform.

It doesn't end there-PayPal is also introducing its first customer service bot for Messenger app.

Starting Friday, Messenger users in the USA who log in with their PayPal accounts can use the popular messaging platform to send and request money to one another. In order to offer better customer support (which will be needed once the new friend payment feature goes live), PayPal is launching its chat bot. Last year PayPal and Facebook collaborated to offer 2.5 million United States consumers to use their Facebook Messenger for communicating between PayPal users.

However, San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York has reportedly vowed to stand by players who continue to kneel. Goodell also said there were only "six or seven" players protesting.

In 2016, Facebook and PayPal began offering users an easier way to shop online in Facebook Messenger by using their PayPal account. A recent article describes the process used: You can access the feature the same way you'd pay with a card.

This PayPal bot will assist people in having helpful interactions with the customer service for jobs like resetting passwords, help needed for payments or refunds issues and handling account related queries. This way you can easily send money and can make transactions through your PayPal account. Here, you need to choose PayPal as the payment mode and proceed. If you have been using a different methods to send money on Messenger, select Change button to change it to PayPal.

PayPal is rolling out this functionality to the Facebook Messenger app, and it will be available to U.S consumers from today. The same will be available for Android platform very soon.
