Would you use this new Payments feature on WhatsApp? let me know your thoughts 👇🏾
Facebook Inc’s WhatsApp messaging service rolled out a system across Brazil on Monday that will allow users to send money to individuals or local businesses within a chat, attaching payments as they would a photo or video for free.
This is a massive shift in social media commerce… creating the drive towards frictionless marketing payments. Especially after the launch of shops a couple of weeks ago (see my last post: https://lnkd.in/dSbEtAY), we are seeing a plan unveil… 🤔
Are we catching-up to China?
Payments is a big move in the West but has been prevalent in Asian culture with equivalent rival of the East WeChat, which has a full integrated app allowing you too book cabs, link to your government profile and use virtual currencies and much more….
Would that mean apps like Uber could potentially integrate into others!
Note: FacebookPayments only started trials last year in India (approx 11 months ago).
