Online payment gateway PayPal now lets US users send and request money via Facebook Messenger.

"The ability to send and request money in Messenger - one of the most widely used apps in the world - gives people more choice and more convenient ways to get things done in different contexts", PayPal said in its announcement.

PayPal eventually will roll out the service globally, which may take some time considering the massive user base of both companies: Messenger's 1.3 billion and PayPal's 218 million active users. This makes it clear that this new PayPal integration will be more helpful for all the users who make online transactions. In the same piece of news, PayPal announced that it has chose to introduce its first PayPal customers service bot for Messenger.
