Paying with WhatsApp could soon be possible. In fact, for a long time there has been talk of the possibility of both making mobile payments with our mobile through WhatsApp, and making payments between users through the messaging application. However, now it seems that it will soon be a reality. And it is that in the Beta of WhatsApp there is already a reference to WhatsApp Payments.
Actually, it seems logical that it is simply a mobile payments platform. It could be both to pay with your mobile in stores where they have a POS with NFC, as well as to make payments between users. When we go to eat with friends, it is always easy that it is impossible to balance all the accounts with the cash that each one carries. The simplest solution would actually be to send money from one bank account to another. However, this is not simple. There are already some platforms from which it is possible to send money from one account to another. However, none of these platforms is widely used, so in the end it is not really useful either.
However, WhatsApp is the most widely used communication application in the world. The arrival of WhatsApp Payments could completely change payments between users.
However, WhatsApp Payments is currently only a reference that appears in the Beta version of WhatsApp. We can’t even know what the functions of this new feature would be. But in any case, the launch of WhatsApp Payments could be very relevant.
