You can now use PayPal to send money through Facebook Messenger

PayPal Facebook Messenger feature settles the group check

PayPal has recently announced their expansion in alliance with Facebook by offering the P2P (Peer-to-Peer) Payments option on the giant social network's Messenger application. This announcement came today after the two companies teamed up to integrate PayPal payment services with the Messenger's platform.

PayPal introduced a way to make payments online via Facebook Messenger during a year ago, allowing users to shop online easily.

Sending money via Messenger was previously handled by linking a debit card or bank account to your Facebook account, and while there isn't anything wrong with this implementation, the ability to alternatively use your PayPal funds is a nice touch for those that are heavily reliant on PayPal's services. PayPal can be selected as the source when making a payment to a Messenger contact. A recent article describes the process used: You can access the feature the same way you'd pay with a card.

Today's news continues the progression of payments on Facebook Messenger, a chat app with 1.3 billion monthly active users.

Customers could also choose to link their PayPal account with Messenger in order to receive notifications and receipts from their online transactions within Messenger. Over here, you need to enter the amount you like to send or receive and add a short note.

TechCrunch speculates because of the system's ease of use, Facebook's buy-and-sell and marketplace community will likely turn it into its de facto payment method, which is good news for both PayPal and Facebook, since that'll definitely increase the number of people who are going to take advantage of the feature.

The feature, which is primarily available on iOS and web, will soon be rolled out on Android.

To use PayPay when sending money in Messenger, just tap the blue plus icon and then the Green button titled "Payments" like you normally would. Just select PayPal option from the available option and you will be done. Let us know down in the comments.
