Integrate with Facebook Payment
The platform is growing fast and it offers the fastest way to get the money paid by your friend to your account. Please support it.
We’re open to doing P2P integrations if they become popular and if the payment system creates a good way for us to build the integration.
I’ll leave this thread open to see how many other people would like FB messenger payments.
Any updates on this by any chance? It would be great to get in touch with Facebook to see if they are open to the idea of opening up their API.
I much prefer Facebook over Venmo. Venmo scares me. There are tons of stories online about payment reversal scams - basically the borrower claims their friend is a merchant and venmo reverses the transaction because merchant transactions aren't allowed on personal accounts. Facebook doesn't have that, and money is transferred faster and transactions are more irreversible because they only allow debit cards.

Facebook Messenger now has payments inside conversations that allow you to request money from your friends. Since we can already link our Facebook account to Splitwise, it would be awesome for the settle up button to include a link to request a payment via Messenger.
