PayPal integrated into Facebook’s Messenger app.
A new milestone hit today in the world of ecommerce as Facebook unveiled its integration of PayPal into its messenger service.
Combining the entangled social media messenger with the web’s top ecommerce site, allows users to complete transactions, have their purchases tracked, and possibly shared….with any of Facebook’s partners. This dovetails into the marketplace that Facebook recently released and quickly had to moderate. PayPal integration will allow more efficient transactions through this harried, and possibly illegal, e-rummage sale.
For now, this integration is rolling out slowing, only to US users. Perhaps that will give Facebook more time to monitor the activity and find any jarring red flags in the system. However, I think I’ll refrain from giving up my account information to the social media giant for just a bit longer… probably forever.
