Messaging app will soon let you make PayPal payments

The feature is currently available for BlackBerry, iOS, and Android BBM users in Canada, and will roll out to other markets in the coming weeks.

The PayPal payment platform will be available across all platforms when the roll out begins

Reports reveal that BlackBerry has started testing a new BBM feature that allows you to send and receive money using PayPal from within the messenger app.

According to GSM Arena the feature is currently available for BlackBerry, iOS, and Android BBM users in Canada, and will roll out to other markets in the coming weeks.

According to the report, here’s how it works: first you have to select the PayPal "Send Money" icon in BBM and connect your PayPal account. Once your contacts also do the same, you can start sending money to them by selecting the PayPal icon in the app, entering the amount of money, reviewing the details, and finally hitting the send button.

It is also worth mentioning that you don't need to have the PayPal app installed on your device for the feature to work.
