Facebook Messenger Lets you Send Money to Friends with PayPal

You can send money on Facebook Messenger using PayPal now

The two companies had previously teamed up a year ago to allow more than 2.5 million us customers to connect their accounts from both platforms and use PayPal to shop on the messaging app.

PayPal has announced that they've expanded their collaboration with Facebook by adding their service for P2P payments in the social networking giant's Messenger application.

The integration is rolling out for customers residing in the United States.

Starting Friday, Messenger users in the US who log in with their PayPal accounts can use the popular messaging platform to send and request money to one another. Tap blue plus icon and hit the green payment button. After that, select PayPal as the payment method by tapping on "Change" if you had used any other payment method on Messenger before.

Facebook Messenger Lite, which was initially aimed at users in emerging markets, has surprisingly launched in the US, Canada, UK, and Ireland. But Friday's announcement potentially expands PayPal's reach even further, allowing the payments company to potentially tap into Messenger's 1.3 billion monthly active users.

"Whether it's splitting a bill for a cab ride or a night out, paying for your share of the rent, or making sure you get paid back for mom's birthday present, PayPal makes exchanging money between friends and family simple", said PayPal in a statement. Recently Facebook has planned to incorporate PayPal for this goal.

Besides the person-person payment feature, PayPal also announced the launch of a customer service bot for Messenger.

This feature is probably meant to compete with apps like Venmo that already let users use PayPal in order to split bills or pay friends. Just select PayPal option from the available option and you will be done. The feature is now available on iOS and will soon be available on Android platforms too.

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.
