Facebook Messenger Integrates Pay Pal, Helps Monetizes Service

In 2016, Facebook and PayPal began offering users an easier way to shop online in Facebook Messenger by using their PayPal account.

The integration is rolling out for customers residing in the United States.

PayPal has also launched a customer service bot for the Messenger app, which allows the user to effortlessly accept payment and to get account assistance directly in the Facebook Messenger app. For the operation to work, all you have to do is simply tap on the "+" icon which will bring up a green payment button. Unfortunately, you can only use it if you're in the USA - everyone else will just have to find other ways to spend their PayPal balance. The bot for Messenger will then assist users with their queries or request. PayPal could be made the funding source for Messenger contacts when making P2P payments.

At the moment, the peer-to-peer payments system is only available in the US, where PayPal has over 2.5 million customers.

Sindh police chief AD Khowaja has directed all DIGs to ensure foolproof security for Diwali, a statement said on Wednesday. The Swami Narayan Seva Garba Mandal president said that Diwali marks Lord Rama's homecoming and subsequent crowning.

Despite their popularity, however, Facebook has struggled to monetize its messaging services like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. Consumers now want the ability to transact wherever they are and however they want, and PayPal is committed to being the best option to enable this. You will then be asked to link your PayPal account or you credit/debit card.

The new PayPal payment feature is locked to the USA as of right now, which is a bit of a bummer.

This feature can be accessed the same way one used to pay with debit and credit card. The update is now available to download for all Android devices. We are not sure whether Facebook will make this feature available for the desktop users as well.
