Facebook Messenger now allows you to send and receive money via PayPal

What makes this development even more significant is the fact that now sending funds through the Messenger would be as easy as sending a picture. Yes, Facebook Messenger lets you send money through PayPal to your friends and relatives who are there in your Facebook. PayPal certainly has its faults, but it does provide another layer of protection in case someone gets ahold of your account. A recent article describes the process used: You can access the feature the same way you'd pay with a card. Next, select the green Payments button to send, request money to friends.

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. If you need additional support, you can choose to connect with PayPal's live customer service. PayPal could be made the funding source for Messenger contacts when making P2P payments. The bot is aimed to help with refunds as well payment issues.

Facebook Messenger Lite, which was initially aimed at users in emerging markets, has surprisingly launched in the US, Canada, UK, and Ireland. The partnership between the two companies began a year ago and today's announcement is an extension to that. The feature is now available on iOS and will soon be available on Android platforms too.

When Will The New Apple Pay Features Launch? PayPal's COO Bill Ready says, "The unique thing here is that Messenger has opened up a platform that allows us to not only have a one-to-one communication, but there's a platform where we can go resolve things right inside of Messenger". Will the addition of PayPal change that?
