You can now send and receive money with PayPal in Facebook Messenger


To date, over 2.5 million users have linked their PayPal account with Messenger, PayPal says, and that number is expected to grow with today's news. "Whether it's splitting a bill for a cab ride or a night out, paying for your share of the rent, or making sure you get paid back for mom's birthday present, PayPal makes exchanging money between friends and family simple", the company said in a statement late Friday.

PayPal has announced that they've expanded their collaboration with Facebook by adding their service for P2P payments in the social networking giant's Messenger application. Yes, Facebook Messenger lets you send money through PayPal to your friends and relatives who are there in your Facebook.

The move makes sense for PayPal, which already processes over $80 billion in peer-to-peer payments - the kind of payment method popularized by PayPal-owned services such as Venmo.
