PayPal previously integrated its service with Facebook Messenger to enable users to send money to each other using Facebook’s cross-platform messaging service. It’s expanding its partnership with the world’s largest social network to enable its users to send invoices through Facebook Messenger as well. PayPal today announced a chat extension for Facebook Messenger that enables invoicing.

If Messenger users rely on the platform to communicate with their customers or clients, they can now easily invoice them as well by leveraging the security that PayPal offers right inside Messenger itself.

Sellers can create and send a PayPal invoice directly in a Messenger conversation, complete with the price and image. The buyer can act on the invoice immediately inside Messenger as well. The entire transaction can occur within seconds inside the conversation itself so both parties don’t even have to leave the chat.

PayPal’s invoicing extension for Facebook Messenger can be found in the extension tray. Users will need to enter simple details like item name, description, price, and quantity before they send it. The buyer can simply press “Pay with PayPal” when they receive the invoice to complete the transaction seamlessly with PayPal One Touch.

It’s essentially a plugin that routes the existing PayPal functionality through a Facebook Messenger chat. However, it does make it easier to send and act on invoices because there’s no app switching involved.
