"In addition to enabling P2P payments with PayPal in Messenger, we are also introducing our first-ever PayPal customer service bot for Messenger, so PayPal customers can seamlessly receive payment and account support directly in the app", said Bill Ready, PayPal's chief operating officer. But Friday's announcement potentially expands PayPal's reach even further, allowing the payments company to potentially tap into Messenger's 1.3 billion monthly active users. Moreover, the utilization of PayPal can also be made in shopping on Messenger and booking rides through various ride-hailing services.

PayPal has also launched a customer bot which will essentially escort a user and assist him in sending and receiving funds. Consumers now want the ability to transact wherever they are and however they want, and PayPal is committed to being the best option to enable this.
