PayPal and Facebook Messenger add P2P payments and Chat Bot support

Facebook Messenger lets developers monetize ads

The integration also brings a PayPal customer service bot that can handle questions and requests for help right from within the Facebook Messenger window.

Messenger announced its partnership with PayPal around the same time a year ago, where people in the U.S. could make payments to merchants directly using chatbots, facilitated by PayPal and other players like MasterCard, Visa, Stripe, etc. The new announcement expands the partnership into peer-to-peer payments. The automated system uses the natural language processing capabilities in Messenger's platform to understand what people are saying, and those who can't get an answer from the bot can connect with a live customer service team.

Back in 2015, Facebook made it easier for its users to send and receive money through its Messenger app.

"The ability to send and request money in Messenger gives people more choice and more convenient ways to get things done in different contexts", PayPal COO Bill Ready told Yahoo Finance. Recently Facebook has planned to incorporate PayPal for this goal. The bot is aimed to help with refunds as well payment issues. This integration in Messenger is starting to roll out to United States consumers.

The expansion of PayPal's relationship with Facebook now will provide people with the option of sending and requesting money via their PayPal account.

When Will The New Apple Pay Features Launch?

Previously, over 2.5 million PayPal users used Messenger to make purchases on the messaging platform. Also, it looks like iOS is getting the feature first, but we're hoping it shows up on Android soon.
