san francisco - It seems that it will soon be possible to make payments within WhatsApp. The WABetaInfo website has references to WhatsApp Payments found in a WhatsApp beta for Android.
More than just a reference to WhatsApp Payments has not been found and it is therefore a mystery when this new feature goes live. Whoever wants to quickly transfer money to acquaintances, has a lot of options to do. For example, the app Tikkie of ABN Amro is popular in the Netherlands.
It seems obvious that WhatsApp Payments will be based on the same system as Payments in Facebook Messenger. WhatsApp is owned by Facebook.
