Group Payments in Messenger Now Available in the US

Since 2015, Facebook has allowed person-to-person payments between two people able to send and receive money on Messenger.

Now, starting on Tuesday, Messenger has enabled sending and receiving money between groups of people — free, simple, fast and secure. “Whether you’re splitting a restaurant bill or chipping in for a group gift, all you need to do is go to a new or existing Messenger group conversation to get started,” says product manager.

To exchange money with your group in Messenger:

  • just tap on the plus sign in the bottom left hand corner in group conversation,
  • then tap the payments icon ($), and choose “everyone in the group” or “only a few members” to send or request money from.
  • Then, enter the amount to request per person or the total sum to divide evenly, either including yourself in the calculation or not.
  • Finally, specify what the money is for — maybe a pizza party, teacher gift or more. Once you’re ready, tap Request.

Once the payment is made, a message in the group conversation notifies who has paid. And, at any time, you can also view the Request Details in full-screen.

And, of course, Messenger securely stores your debit card information.
