In last month, Facebook announced function of fast and free payments via Messenger. At that time, everybody thought that project is just at the stage of testing and that for some time its usage will be accessible only within New York.
Everybody in USA can use service
However, Facebook decided not to put off launching in other States, since service excellently coped with testing. David Marcus from Facebook said:
We’re happy to announce that Messenger person-to-person payments are now available to everyone in the U.S.! Add your Debit Card and pay anyone on Messenger in a few taps. Money goes straight from your checking account to the recipient’s checking account. Easy and safe.
For those who has not heard about this function before, we reminds that new service allows transfer money directly through Messenger. It is very convenient function, if you need, for example, return money to your friend or divide check from restaurant. Also it is convenient for those, who communicates with sellers via Facebook and wants to pay for goods or services. As yet, there is no information about accessibility of this service in other countries.
