  • Facebook Messenger lets developers monetize ads

(Since then, Messenger has stayed mum on how many users are actually using the feature.) For comparison, PayPal allows people to make payments by inputting their debit card, credit card or bank account information.

With the introduction of peer-to-peer payments, Facebook Messengers users can now send and receive money from their friends through PayPal - either in a group chat or a personal chat. If you don't want to use PayPal's official service platform, you can simply integrate it with the Facebook Messenger app. When writing a message in the app users can tap the blue plus icon, choose whether they want to send or request money, write in the amount and then tap the green button to confirm the payment. Sadly, you can only use it if you're in the US. This integration in Messenger is starting to roll out to United States consumers. If someone is already using Facebook Messenger for payments, he can just tap to change button and select Paypal.

According to a report by IANS, PayPal's move to enable its users to exchange money while chatting on Facebook Messenger, will be more convenient for people in various contexts. We are not sure whether Facebook will make this feature available for the desktop users as well. People can then choose PayPal as their funding source when making a P2P payment with their Messenger contacts. The bot will be able to help users with payments and account support, like resetting passwords, handling account inquiries and other tasks, on Messenger. Moreover, the utilization of PayPal can also be made in shopping on Messenger and booking rides through various ride-hailing services.
