Facebook recently announced Group Payment Feature for their Messenger application. the feature was already available but it was limited to send and receive money person-to-person payments just between two people. the social networking giant has started rolling out the Group Payment Feature for Android and desktop. the feature is free, fast and secure and will be helpful if you’re splitting a restaurant bill or chipping in for a group gift.
This is how you can use Group Payment Feature in Messenger :
Simply tap on the plus sign in the bottom left hand corner of a group conversation to find more features, and tap the payments icon ($). Then, choose who to send or request money from. You can choose everyone in the group or only a few members. Enter the amount you want to request per person or the total sum to divide evenly, either including yourself in the calculation or not. Finally, you can specify what the money is for — maybe a pizza party, teacher gift or more. Once you’re ready, tap Request.
To make it super simple to keep track of everything, a message will appear in the group conversation showing who has paid. At any time, you can also view the Request Details in full-screen. Coordinating group payments has never been easier.
