Introducing Two-Way Messaging in the PayPal App

The new PayPal app also introduces a new, private two-way messaging feature which will enable two users to communicate when they conduct a peer-to-peer money transfer, whether to acknowledge receipt, send a note of thanks, confirm details of the transaction or more, directly within the app experience.

Two-way messaging for transactions enhances the peer-to-peer send and receive money functionality in the PayPal app, offering a new way for two PayPal customers to connect when sending money for Friends and Family as well as Goods and Services transactions. Two-way messaging is rolling out to customers internationally in the coming weeks.
