PayPal works with Blackberry on P2P payments

Troubled phone manufacturer Blackberry has partnered with PayPal on BBM Money, a new P2P payment service that will allow BBM users to instantly send and receive money over the messaging service.

Starting from this week, select users in Canada on BlackBerry 10, Android and iOS phones can send money securely with PayPal straight from their BBM app.

To use the service users need to click on the PayPal ‘Send Money’ icon in BBM and connect to their PayPal account. Users will not need to have a separate PayPal app.

The idea of inserting payments into digital conversations has recently been getting a lot of traction with Facebook launching its payments service within Messenger and Snapchat’s Square-powered Snapcash.
