Mobile payment transactions may not be the standard yet but there are a lot of people who prefer this method simply because of its ease and convenience. Others are simply worried about privacy and security but developers like Facebook know how to make an app secure all the time. Frequent updates and releases make sure the app is always in tip-top shape.
The latest update to Facebook Messenger brings a new feature that allows person-to-person (P2P) mobile payments. The P2P payment on Facebook Messenger only requires a debit card or credit card (Visa or Mastercard) so you can send money right away to a contact. To send an amount, open up a conversation, click on the dollar ($) icon, enter amount when prompted, and then click 'Pay'. Amount will be sent immediately to the other person who will receive the money on his or her own checking account.
