PayPal users can now send money via BBM

BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) and PayPal have teamed up to allow contacts start sending and receiving PayPal funds via the Instant Messaging platform.
According to Matt Gromada, PayPal’s Director of Consumer Product Marketing, users will connect their PayPal account to BBM to enable
this feature.
Once the user selects the PayPal “Send Money” icon in BBM and connect his PayPal account, he can start sending money to family and friends once they have also connected their PayPal accounts to BBM. From there, they simply select the PayPal icon directly in BBM, enter in the amount of money, review the details, and hit send.
Starting today, the external beta will be available for BlackBerry, iOS and Android BBM users in Canada, and will roll out to other regions around the globe in the coming weeks.
The beta is currently only available to select BBM users in Canada. More countries to follow shortly.
