PayPal is deepening its relationship with Facebook, and will now become one of the payment options within Messenger, among other integrations. That means customers who shop via the growing number of chatbots from online merchants will be able to transact on Messenger using PayPalís payment service. In addition, as part of this deal, PayPal says it will make it easier to link your PayPal account to Facebook and Messenger, and it will roll out support for receiving notifications about PayPal transactions to Messenger users in the U.S. PayPalís integration with Messenger had been previously announced. Facebook had been beta testing payments in Messenger with select developers, and said that it would roll out this capability more broadly by the end of the year. In addition, Messenger payments are not being limited to PayPal Ė customers can transact using their payment info already stored in Facebook and Messenger within the bots, as another option. Plus, Facebook has said itís working with others in the industry, including Stripe, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, not just PayPal and PayPal-owned Braintree.
