PayPal has also launched a customer bot which will essentially escort a user and assist him in sending and receiving funds.

"We're excited today to announce an expansion of our relationship with Facebook with the addition of PayPal as a funding source for peer-to-peer (P2P) payments, right in Messenger". If you don't want to use PayPal's official service platform, you can simply integrate it with the Facebook Messenger app. Messenger users have been able to send money to one another since as far back as 2015, and that feature is now expanding to allow people to send and receive money using their PayPal account. People will have the option to send and request money using their PayPal account, and this integration in Messenger is starting to roll out to USA consumers today.

Now, Paypal and Facebook have partnered to bring peer-to-peer payments in Messenger. This new feature will make you able to send or request money through Facebook Messenger. Last year PayPal and Facebook collaborated to offer 2.5 million USA consumers to use their Facebook Messenger for communicating between PayPal users. With PayPal's presence already getting stronger on Facebook, this piece of news didn't come to many of us as a surprise.

This feature is probably meant to compete with apps like Venmo that already let users use PayPal in order to split bills or pay friends.

This year, PayPal has also launched a P2P bot for payments on Slack and struck partnerships with Mastercard, Visa, Vodafone, and Alibaba. Enter the amount and then you will show different payment methods.

To use PayPay when sending money in Messenger, just tap the blue plus icon and then the Green button titled "Payments" like you normally would.

PayPal is a leading P2P payments app with United States dollars 24 billion in P2P volume during the third quarter of 2017 alone, reported IANS. People also can choose to connect with PayPal's live customer service, right from Messenger app. But it would soon be available also on Android.
