For the first time, WhatsApp users in Brazil can now send and receive money using their phones!
Meta is looking to solidify WhatsApp’s presence in Brazil, where it already boasts an incredible user base of 147 million. And with the addition of payment features that allow users to pay small businesses within a chat conversation, this app could become even more indispensable for those living South America’s largest country.
WhatsApp has made it simpler than ever to shop conveniently with the addition of its new payment feature. You can now securely pay for goods and services using Mastercard or Visa debit cards, pre-paid options, as well as creating personalized PINs – all in a few taps! Brazil is just one of many countries taking advantage of this secure shopping experience.
Meta’s exciting new feature is unlocking the ability for people and businesses to interact right within their favorite chat channels. This innovative move comes as social media users migrate away from public feeds towards private messaging platforms – something that Facebook, in particular, has seen reflected in a decreased newsfeed engagement but an increased usage of messenger services.
With the latest WhatsApp update, Meta is aiming to tap into a shift in how users prefer to communicate. Starting out with Brazil, this new option could soon be available worldwide – allowing people everywhere to keep their messaging private and secure.
