Sending money via Messenger was previously handled by linking a debit card or bank account to your Facebook account, and while there isn't anything wrong with this implementation, the ability to alternatively use your PayPal funds is a nice touch for those that are heavily reliant on PayPal's services.

This time around, Facebook and PayPal expanded their partnership by allowing person-to-person payments without leaving the app and by letting users send and request money with their accounts. Tap the blue plus icon, then hit the green Payments button. 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". But for now, it has already started rolling out in the U.S.so let us know how the experience is if you've already tried it out.

People can then choose PayPal as their funding source when making a P2P payment with their Messenger contacts. Search for PayPal in the search field and then type a message and the bot should be able to assist you.

Facebook already had a way to pay businesses and shop directly through Facebook messenger.

According to TechCrunch, the deeper integration with Messenger's platform, which will also include PayPal's first customer service bot for handling customer questions and requests for help, follows a series of tie-ups between the two companies. The aim is to enable PayPal to help you get what you need and get on with your day. A recent article describes the process used: You can access the feature the same way you'd pay with a card. But it would soon be available also on Android. We are not sure whether Facebook will make this feature available for the desktop users as well. The update weighs 82.87 megabytes which means there are surely more improvements coming alongside with the update.
