Facebook Messenger adds support for Peer-to-Peer Payments through PayPal

PayPal Facebook Messenger feature settles the group check

To start using PayPal bot, type PayPal in the search field followed by a message.

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.

PayPal users in the United States now have the option to send and receive person-to-person payments over Facebook Messenger, thus further strengthening the string of ties between the two players.

Previously, over 2.5 million PayPal users used Messenger to make purchases on the messaging platform. Facebook is hoping that this feature will make it easy for people to split bills, pay rent and anything else that may have been placed on one check but is a group activity.

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. This way you can easily send money and can make transactions through your PayPal account.

It's also worth noting that Messenger users in the USA have been able to pay one another inside the app since March 2015, requiring people to enter their debit card information as a method of payment.

It's not the first time for PayPal to be integrated within a service, as Apple's Siri already supports making payments via voice commands on iOS, with transactions activated via Touch ID, if available.

This year, PayPal has also launched a P2P bot for payments on Slack and struck partnerships with Mastercard, Visa, Vodafone, and Alibaba. Just select PayPal option from the available option and you will be done.

Users can explore the new feature by tapping the blue plus icon within Messenger, then selecting the green Payments button to send or request money. Android users, according to the company, would soon have their turn.
