BBM and PayPal are in partnership to enable sending and receiving money through BBM possible.
To send Paypal funds via BBM, just connect your PayPal account to your BBM. Once your BBM contacts do the same, you can start sending and receiving money – it’s that simple.
The external beta is already available for BlackBerry, iOS and Android BBM users in Canada, it is expected that the rest of the world will get theirs in the coming weeks.
On your BBM app select the PayPal “Send Money” icon in BBM and connect your PayPal account. You can start sending money to others once they have also connected their PayPal accounts to BBM.
Select the PayPal icon directly in BBM, enter in the amount of money, review the details, and hit send.
And you do not need to have the PayPal app on your device to send money as the transfer happens through BBM, You don’t have to leave BBM to send a photo or file. So, why should they have to with
money? – Pay and get paid in the moment, right in your BBM conversations.
