Tech: WhatsApp to Allow Users and Small Businesses to Send Money Through the App in Brazil
The tech giant and biggest messaging platform is set to start allowing its users to send and receive money directly on the App. These services are to start in Brazil and the world as time goes on. In a post earlier today Mark Zuckerberg posted….
Today we’re starting to launch payments for people using WhatsApp in Brazil. We’re making sending and receiving money as easy as sharing photos.
We’re also enabling small businesses to make sales right within WhatsApp. To do this, we’re building on Facebook Pay, which provides a secure and consistent way to make payments across our apps. I want to thank all of our partners for making this possible. We’re working with local banks, including Banco do Brasil, Nubank, Sicredi as well as Cielo,
the leading payments processor for merchants in Brazil. Brazil is the first country where we’re widely rolling out payments in WhatsApp. More to come soon!
