Paypal Transactions Now Possible Over Messenger
It was announced last Friday that US Paypal users can now send and receive person-to-person payments on Facebook Messenger.
The plan, which was jointly announced around a year ago by both companies, now allows US customers to shop from Messenger chatbots, and pay via Paypal.
Facebook users can now also link their Paypal accounts to Messenger and set it as a default method of payment.
Paypal also announced that customers may now get support by chatting with their Messenger bot, which can process normal, everyday language. Live reps are still available to take requests which are beyond the chatbot’s capabilities.
