GUWAHATI: Soon WhatsApp users will be able to send money easily just like sending photos to their contacts. The features will be available in Brazil from today.
“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, ”Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announces on Facebook.
“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!” he added.
