Facebook Pay launches

The new service will let you send money without fees across Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger

In Brief:

  • It will let users of Facebook's family of apps — including Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger — send and receive money and make purchases.
  • The service is similar to Venmo, Google Wallet and Apple Pay, allowing users to transfer money directly from their bank account or credit cards.
  • Facebook Messenger already had a service called Payments that let people send money from their bank accounts, but it didn't support major credit cards.
