PayPal previously integrated its service with Facebook Messenger to allow users to send money to each other using Facebook’s cross-platform messaging service. Now it’s expanding this partnership with Facebook to allow its users to send invoices through Facebook Messenger as well.
PayPal has now announced a chat extension for Facebook Messenger that allows invoicing. That will make getting paid even easier.
If Messenger users rely on the platform to communicate with their customers or clients, they can now easily invoice them as well as taking advantage of the security that PayPal offers right inside of Messenger itself. That’s very convenient. Sellers can create and send a PayPal invoice directly in a Messenger conversation, which will include the price and image. The buyer can act on the invoice immediately inside Messenger too. The entire transaction can take place within seconds so both parties don’t even have to leave the chat.
PayPal’s invoicing extension for Facebook Messenger can be found in the extension tray. You will need to enter some simple details like item name, description, price, and quantity before sending it. The buyer can just press “Pay with PayPal” when they get the invoice to complete the transaction with PayPal One Touch.
