With the Pay Per Minute add-on for CAMCOM Chat, you can charge your website users money to chat with you.Your users can pay money to access your chat for a selected amount of minutes. First, the user chooses how many minutes of chat access to buy and then makes the payment via Pay Pal or credit card.Because of the size and scale of both companies, the feature will be rolled out gradually – which means you might not see it right away, but should soon.The feature will be available on i OS and web ahead of Android.While the Messenger integration will bring Pay Pal to a large audience, it’s not the first time Pay Pal has integrated with a messaging service – it’s already available via Apple’s i Message, and can be launched through Siri.When we asked Pay Pal if the plan was to offer a similar p2p option in other messaging apps in the future, Pay Pal COO Bill Ready said there was nothing to share right now.“But I think this is part of a broader movement where we’re meeting the user in whatever context they’re in,” he added, noting that Pay Pal is also now available in services like Android Pay and Google Play, for example.
Customers could also choose to link their Pay Pal account with Messenger in order to receive notifications and receipts from their online transactions within Messenger.
Next, the payment is verified and the user is automatically connected to your chat.
The user's payment will instantly show up in your Pay Pal account.
To date, over 2.5 million users have linked their Pay Pal account with Messenger, Pay Pal says, and that number is expected to grow with today’s news.
For starters, Pay Pal users can now pay their friends right inside Messenger – shifting some portion of Pay Pal’s billion peer-to-peer payment volume to Facebook’s messaging app.
